When the iron is hot

February 8, 2015

Strike. The proverb swiftly reminds: don’t miss the moment, and this take: wait for the moment. Not just yet. Withhold your advice, your rage, your wisdom just till the right moment shows up. An ancient proverb says the prudent keep their knowledge to themselves. Probably not out of a selfish motive, but because its value will be slighted. (On the contrary, the righteous give and give generously) But when the moment’s right, the sting’s just right. The point? So the person says, ouch it hurts good! (Credits: it hurts good, words used in South American culture)
