Daily Haiku - Publicity

daily encouragement written by paul

for good deeds done right
may your praises be public
and scolding demure


My son (daughter): May you always keep your correction of others private, and praise them in public where there are more ears to hear. In this way, the blessings offered multiply instead of diminishing. May you observe the character of others keenly, so that you can know if they are the type to keep their praise stingily or mysteriously private or their criticism loud and devastatingly public as a matter of preference, not need.
