“You can smile but not show teeth.”

Half-way feels safer than all in. If you leave an emotion or an opinion up to doubt, no one will know your true feelings or true voice.

Suppression is a mind killer. So is coercion. Freedom from constraint is released through a combination of confidence and care.

Passion is scarce. Fence-sitting and compliance is a common injustice. Don’t do it to yourself. Gain an expressive muscle.
