Wise Speech

“40. A wise man first thinks and then speaks and a fool speaks first and then thinks.41. A fool’s mind is at the mercy of his tongue and a wise man’s tongue is under the control of his mind.”

-Imam Ali (as)

So much of my walk along the path has been about restraint of my speech. When angered, is it wise to strike back with cutting words? Of course not, but in the desperate search to escape the pain in the moment I all too often lose sight of that. May I tame the tongue and mind by practicing the good Dhamma.
