It’s scribbled on a torn off portion of blue paper, and it’s my writing, although I have no recollection of making the note. The words are powerful, and, according to my notation, were spoken by my friend, Laquita Mullings.
“When you don’t have anything interesting or important to say, don’t let anybody persuade you to say it.”
Isn’t that great. Clamp shut our little mouths and gulp down the silly words.
Solomon thought this was a good subject and writes about it quite a bit, including these in Proverbs 15:2.
“The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright; but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.”
And here in Proverbs 13:3
“He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life; but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.”
If I practice what I preach, it may be pretty quiet around here today. 🙂
