Sometimes the best thing that can be done (or said) is to do (or say) nothing.
What I mean to say is that some people have in inate ability to dig themselves deeper in the cesspit.
Also, remember that aversion cannot be conquered with more aversion.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
