Pleasant Speech

Speak only the speech that neither torments self nor does harm to others. That speech is truly well spoken.

Speak only endearing speech, speech that is welcomed.

Speech when it brings no evil to others is pleasant. Truth, indeed, is deathless speech: This is an ancient principle.

The goal and the Dhamma — so say the calm — are firmly established on truth.

The speech the Awakened One speaks, for attaining Unbinding, rest, for making an end to the mass of stress: That is the speech unexcelled.
