Wisdom for the Tongue

When words are many, transgression cannot be avoided,
But whoever controls his lips acts discreetly.
================================
“In the abundance of words there does not fail to be transgression, but the one keeping his lips in check is acting discreetly.” The more we talk, the greater the risk that we will say something foolish or even harmful. Indeed, the unbridled tongue can be like a fire, rapidly spreading hurtful gossip and slander.  However, when we ‘keep our lips in check,’ or think before we speak, we take into consideration the effect our words may have. In this way, we become known for discretion, and we gain the respect and confidence of others.
