Three proverbs

Three proverbs for today, friends:
  • A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, but he who is slow to anger quiets contention.
  • Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble.
  • There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
Frustrations pass, friends. Speaking while you are frustrated can cause a lot of pain and ruin friendships.

Blogs and facebooks and myspace's can be tools for great fun and communication but they are also dangerous: they preserve your words and magnify your feelings. I try to be careful with my blog and use it to promote good things and not bad . . . life is much better that way. If you need to work out your frustrations by writing, by all means, do it! But why tell everyone and stir up strife?
