Netiquette IQ Quotation of The Day - Timing Done Too Late

All of us have had the feeling, at one time or another, that we lack the right timing. This might be for business, a friendly argue or even a relationship. Here is a quotation to inspire us all to look for the best timing, answer or action ahead of time so we are not just a fraction too late.

'L'esprit d'escalier' is a French phrase, It translates literally to "staircase wit", and refers to thinking of the perfect response five minutes too late.
