I'd rather not to speak

It ain't what you say, it's the way that you say it - that's what get results. Mouth is 10%; eyes is 20%; head is 30% and heart is 40%!

Sharp dagger only wounds the flesh, but a sharp tongue can wound the spirit.

A slip of the foot, you'll soon recover; a slip of the tongue may last forever.

How many of us have realized that since we were given two ears and one mouth it might be that we were intended to listen twice as much as we speak.

We all can get into trouble if we do not know how to tame our tongue.

It's so true. I hate the phrase "sticks and stones will break your bones but words can never hurt you." Sticks and stones may break your bones, but bones heal. While the wounds of an unkind word may scab, the word will stay in your mind. Too many unkind words can certainly kill the spirit. Great topic!

Hi findingequipoise,

You are right! Unkind word can kill the spirit.
