By touching no one, it touches everyone.
That little muscle resting inside your mouth,
It wont break bones but it can break hearts.
It is the greatest power you can have.
It is one of the strongest weapons you have.
Words reflect the state mind, the ego, the integrity of oneself.
A smitten tongue is a reflection of a smitten mind.
A harsh tongue is a reflection of a harsh mind.
A defensive tongue is a reflection of an unsure mind.
If you can control your tongue, you can control your mind which means you can control anything.
Use your tongue to build, to heal and to love.
Use your words wisely.
Speak with integrity.
Honor your word.
Speak with truth.
As your words reflect your mind, your mind reflects you.
Words of integrity will be a reflection of a person with integrity.
The words you whisper to yourself should be kind.
The words you whisper or gossip about others should be kind.
The words you whisper during moments of pressure should be wise.
It’s never about who is right, or who is wrong but it’s about listening to understand so you can speak kindly or say nothing at all.
Speak solemnly, speak less.
” We have two ears and one tongue so that we would listen more and talk less” – Diogenes
