Quote by Leroy Jack Syrop
There are times that when truth and kindness conflict one ought to chose kindness, especially when a little honesty is better than a lot.

It implies that sometimes, offering a small dose of honesty that is wrapped in compassion is far superior to being completely blunt, as it enables us to maintain harmony and preserve relationships while still conveying the necessary information.
