Exaggerating the Truth?

An exaggeration is a truth that has lost its temper.
Kahlil Gibran

Ah, a big man I had to be

from myself I had to flee

an exaggerated fool is me

Sipping my coffee ☕, laced with cinnamon, I noticed how beautiful it is outside today. It is almost springlike, however, I have a feeling winter has not dismissed us from it chilly grasp. I am so looking forward to the  wondrous colors that embrace the trees and foliage that is part of our surroundings, and makes for a happy feeling.

Pondering the today’s quote, I said to myself “Can’t an exaggeration of the truth become a lie in some situations?” I believe stretching the truth may inadvertently redefine the original thought or statement.  Do you not agree?

A truth that lost its temper? Yes I think so, because the exaggeration can be the ruination of the truth! An overstatement; to represent disproportionately and perhaps causing distrust and ire.

Interesting quote this week from patriciasplace.me/2016/02/17/15736/ and always sparks an inspiring reason to write.
