“Gentle words.  And those hurt more than the harsh ones.  A lot of times, you don’t mean the harsh ones.  You just kind of blurt them out unthinkingly.  But the gentle ones, man, those are the killers: the considered words; the I-don’t-want-to-hurt-your-feelings words; the final words.”

–Sam McCain
(Ed Gorman, The Day the Music Died)
