A gentle answer…
A gentle answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.
—Proverbs 15:1, from the New International Version (NIV) of the Bible
If you haven’t seen Flowing Data’s famous movie quotes poster, I highly recommend it! 100 movie quotes made into charts. “We’re not in Kansas anymore.” “Love means never having to say I’m sorry.” “I’ll be back.” Just picture these as charts. Oh wait, you don’t have to, Nathan Yau already did! (You can also order a printed version.)
Anyway, his project inspired me to try some of my proverbs as charts since I love charts and information visualization! Look for more to come!
