English Proverbs -CALL A SPADE A SPADE

Proverb Expansion


Some people use long and round about expressions while speak­ing. This makes the audience confused If one is to express his ideas clearly, he should make his speech plain and simple. Such speeches attract listeners. The best speaker is he who puts his ideas in plain lan­guage. We should call a spade when we see one. Instead of that if we try to call it something else, our speech losses its honesty. Such speech is harmful in our dealings with others. It makes others think that we are cowards and dishonest.

Good people always appreciate plain and straight forward speech. One who speaks such a way is always respected by others.
