Who here has this gift?

The ability to deceive without offending.

The gift of eloquence is called by the Hindus Vak Devi, the goddess of speech. They have distinguished three sorts of beings, Rakshasa, the monster, he who is without speech and without feeling, Manushya, the man who has feeling but lacks expression, and Devata the godlike man, he who has eloquence. It is his eloquence alone that makes him godlike.

Sometimes a person does not wish to speak badly to his friend so as to hurt him, but without wishing to speak badly, he does so, because his mind is full of the bad impressions he has stored there. Therefore we should store up only good impressions, and not keep the others with us, that only good may come from us.

There are two ways of speaking on a subject. Before speaking a person may ponder upon a subject and then speak with all the reasonings that come to him. This is parrot-speech; he repeats what he has learned, as the parrot says some words because he has been taught them.

The store of eloquence, knowledge, is always ready within, and the other way of speaking is to depend upon that store, that knowledge. Then the tongue speaks out what is always there in readiness; the knowledge, eloquence, is always there but it is shut off from us. In order to open up that knowledge an arrow is needed. The arrow is the deep feeling that pierces through to that knowledge. If we see a crooked person walking in the street it is very easy to laugh; it is so absurd. But a little feeling will produce pity, and a deep feeling will bring the expression of pity and compassion.

The Blarney Stone.

My father being 100% Irish blood, took a trip to the mother land and kissed the blarney stone.

Is it true the locals pee on it? You would think they have security officers. :headscratch:

Who here has this gift?

The ability to deceive without offending.


Not me, or any listed! However, I have one they missed.

My gift -- offend without intention..(top of the class in charm school)

Example: experience with a work laptop, with dvd R/W capabilities!(04 timeframe)

Me: this is the third time I have brought this laptop to you because the DVD player isn't working!

Start Ass Tech: well, why do you need a DVD player anyway?

Me: I need it to transfer data to to my workstation.

SAT: what are you doing movies?

Me: need to see your boss, and get this to someone who can fix it! (blurted out in frustration)

SAT gives me "eyes of death" and then complies with my request.

result=working DVD.


walking away, I wonder if that person and I will ever be BFF's (not)

Like I said, top of the class in charm school.
