The difference between a smart man and a wise man is that a smart man knows what to say, a wise man knows whether or not to say it.
~Frank M. Garafola
By swallowing evil words unsaid, no one has ever harmed his stomach.
The trouble with talking too fast is you may say something you haven't thought of yet.
The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right place but to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
It is better to keep one's mouth shut and be thought a fool than to open it and resolve all doubt.
The easiest way to save face is to keep the lower half shut.
Foolishness always results when the tongue outraces the brain.
The words you choose to say something are just as important as the decision to speak.
The kindest word in all the world is the unkind word, unsaid.
