Let’s force ourselves to put the guards to the lips so as not to say anything bad about anyone, because the worst speech is worse than any poisons. All wounds are healed, and the wound from the tongue has no healing. – St. Anthony the Great
Even words I thought were in love still caused harm. I didn’t see that, though in love, they were still sharpened by my selfishness.
I could have spoken differently. I should have never spoken.
I have never regretted being silent.
