Daily Quote # 72

‘Tact is the ability to step on a man’s toes without messing up the shine on his shoes.’
― Harry Truman

This is so funny – the graphic that is intended from this quote. Not only is it funny, but it describes the element of being tactful. The allusion to stepping on someone’s toes EVEN though he/she is wearing scruff-free shoes. In other words, you can step on someone’s toes – get to the core of the person/give an opinion; yet manage not to ruffle his feathers [his exterior/shoes/his attitude].

It is an art form.

How tactful are you? I know I am a work in progress.
