Spiritual & Inspirational Sunday August 23, 2009

Welcome to my Spiritual & Inspirational Sunday post. Having collected quotes and scripture for over 25 years, my hope is that by sharing these quotes it will cause you to pause and reflect. Perhaps you will share a quote with someone who is in need of reading that very quote.

A friend was telling me recently that she had said something she regretted saying. It was said in anger therefore it was full of venom. She was really upset with herself and remorseful.  I think all of us have from time to time said something we wish we had not said.  With that in mind, I want to share some quotes I have collected regarding speaking/communicating.

Your words are a window to your heart  -unknown

Ignorance is always swift to speak -unknown

Never pass up a chance to keep your mouth shut -unknown

A shut mouth gathers no foot (paraphrase Proverbs 13:3)

A soft tongue breaks hard bones (Proverbs 15:1)

Swallowing angry words is much better than having to eat them  -unknown

Have a blessed week!  …susan
