智慧花束

Be careful what you say. You can say something hurtful in ten seconds, but ten years later, the wounds are still there. – Joel Osteen
謹言慎語,你可以在十秒鐘內說出一些傷害人的話,但十年之後,創傷卻依然存在。

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless. – Mother Teresa

Human tongue is a beast that few can master. It strains constantly to break out of its cage, and if it is not tamed, it will run wild and cause you grief. – Unknown
人的舌頭是野獸,很少有人能掌控它。它不斷想從籠子裡掙脫出來,若不被馴服,它就到處狂奔,至終帶給人無限愁苦。

Words have energy and power with the ability to help,to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate, and to humble. – Yehuda Berg
話語攜帶著能量,能療愈、激勵人,也可絆倒、傷害、羞辱人,且能使人謙遜自省。

Be mindful when it comes to your words. A string of some that don’t mean much to you, may stick with someone else for a lifetime. – Rachel Wolchin
留意口中所出的言語。或許對你來說意義不大的話,卻可能緊跟著聽的人一輩子。

Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder. – Rumi
提昇你話語的內涵,而不是提高你的聲量。是雨水使花朵生長,而非雷聲。

Be careful with your words. Once they are said, they can be only forgiven, not forgotten. – Unknown
話出如風收不回。言語傷人還可能被原諒,但話語卻永不會被遺忘。
