If you propose to speak…

“If you propose to speak, keep these items in mind as you prepare your words- always ask yourself, is it true, is it necessary, is it kind? 

Do I speak at the right time, or not? Do I speak of facts, or not? Do I speak gently or harshly? Do I speak profitable words or not? Do I speak with a kindly heart, or inwardly malicious?” – Buddha

“Be kind and compassionate with one another.” – Ephesians 4:32
