As in the saying, « Turn your tongue seven times in your mouth before speaking », we should talk only after we took a moment to really think about what we want to say.
Why should we think about what we want to say before we say it?
Because we can find better words to express our mind.
Because we can prevent ourselves from saying something that we don’t really want to say.
Because sometimes less is better.
« The less you talk, the more you’re listened to. »
– Pauline Phillips
There’s power in the word you say. Use that power wisely.
