Unrestrained Bluntness

I have had some interactions online that immediately came to mind when I read this comment.

"So many people think unrestrained bluntness is the ideal simply because it is honest - not realizing that honesty can be expressed in numerous ways. Sometimes boldness is necessary - but sometimes, though true, it is cruel, lazy and cowardly." Papa D

I really like that. I personally am trying really hard to make sure that the things I say to others are always honest, but have come across times when I just don't know what to say. I feel or think a way that would be unkind to express or unsympathetic. What to do? If you can't say some thing nice, don't say nothin' at all? Little "white lies?" Be vague?
Anyway, I like the quote. Thanks for sharing!
