Fashioned Speech



“The wise ones

fashioned speech

with their thought,

sifting it as grain

is sifted through

a sieve.”


~ Buddha


The sharpest instrument ever possessed by man

is his tongue.

Even compliments can become hand grenades

if you do not choose the right words.

Before you say anything today,

if you can’t say anything nice you might as well

say nothing at all.

Today, use the easy words; please, thank you,

may I help, and show the world how wise you are.

Kindness is using wise fashioned speech.

Kindness is the beginning of a life filled with love.
