Writing Prompt 2
Think carefully about the issue presented in the following excerpt and the assignment below.
Some people like to live by the old expression, “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say
anything at all.” This expression reflects the widely shared belief that one should always try to be
polite and to have consideration for another person’s feelings. While such an approach may
make it easier to get along with people, no real relationship can truly thrive unless it is built on a
solid foundation of truth.
Assignment: Is it more important to avoid hurting people’s feelings or to tell the truth? Plan and
write an essay in which you develop your point of view on this issue. Support your position with
reasoning and examples taken from your reading, studies, experience, or observations.
