Machiventa: "This is Machiventa.
"Let us talk today about wisely sharing with those around us. I am not referring to the sharing of material wealth, but rather about the sharing of our most pensive of thoughts, our deepest of feelings, and as this relates to freedom of speech.
"It is most unwise to share with another if we have reasons to dread the potentially hurtful responses we may receive, and therefore let us seek out others of honesty and integrity -- those who will not find a reason to doubt, a motive for criticism, a pretext on which to gossip, or those who are simply waiting for an opportunity to put another down.
"When fortune brings us this person worthy of knowing our innermost thoughts, our most private of feelings and sincerest of longings, we have indeed found a true and most trusted friend.
"I am Machiventa."
