Benjamin Franklin
Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

Words may show a man's wit but actions his meaning.
Calvin Coolidge

I have never been hurt by what I have not said.
Carl Sandburg
Slang is the language which takes off its coat, spits on its hands - and goes to work.

Confucius

John Andrew Holmes
Speech is conveniently located midway between thought and action, where it often substitutes for both.
