“…we're in the habit of talking without a lot of concern for whether or not our inane blather will come back to haunt us... We talk poorly and then, eventually (or sometimes), we talk smart. We get better at talking precisely because we talk. We see what works and what doesn't, and if we're insightful, do more of what works.”-Seth Godin
