Lovely Thoughts for Lovely People Just Like You
We should always be soft spoken. Sweet speech has the ability to attract one and all. On the contrary, vitriolic speech keeps people away. That is why one should always be soft spoken so that it enhances brotherhood and affection.
One should be cautious not to speak anything that hurts others. Such kind of speech never helps but always brings destruction.
Among a man's many good possessions, a good command of speech has no equal. Prosperity and ruin issue from the power of the tongue. Therefore, guard yourself against thoughtless speech.
Thirukural 65: 641-642
Purity of speech, of the mind, of the senses, and a compassionate heart are needed by one who desires to rise to the divine platform.
Action with love is right conduct. Speak with love and it becomes truth.
Sathya Sai Baba
If you reveal your secrets to the wind, you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees.
