Just Answer Their Question

Self. Iphone 12 Pro with Brushstroke and Photoleap apps

Not to be constantly correcting people,

or in particular not to jump on them whenever they make an error of usage

or a grammatical mistake

or mispronounce something,

but just answer their question

or add another example or debate the issue itself (not their phrasing),

or make some other contribution to the discussion—

and insert the right expression, unobtrusively.

— Marcus Aurelius
