The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,
Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.
(Edward Fitzgerald’s translation of the poem The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyam, 1859)
I adore this poem, my father told me about it a few month ago, and I feel that I wish to share it with you.
Due to the interenet we are all able to state how we feel through written word with exceptional ease, facebook, twitter, blogs, texting. But do we really know the impact of what we write, have we really thought through what we write before we post it and most importantly do we undertand that when something is written it cannot be taken back.
Think before you write!
