- “Whoever guards his mouth, and tongue keeps his soul from troubles.” (Proverbs Chapter 21 Verse 23)
- This bit of verse by an unknown writer says it well: “The boneless tongue, so small and weak, can crush and kill,” declared the Greek.
- The Persian proverb wisely saith, “A lengthy tongue, an early death.”
- Sometimes it takes this form instead: “Don’t let your tongue cut off your head.”
- While Arab sages this impart: “The tongue’s great storehouse is the heart.”
- From Hebrew wit, the Maxim’s sprung: Though feet should slip, don’t let the tongue.”
- A verse from Scripture crowns the whole: “Who keeps the tongue doth keep his/her soul.”
