I posted this in the "Words of Wisdom" section on this blog, but I found it too important not to dedicate an entire post to it. I just found it on a friend's Facebook page, and I thought of the many people whose wounds it can heal just because we're cautious about what we say in front of others.
"Don't speak about your wealth in front of the poor.Don't speak about your health in front of the sick. Don't speak about your strength in front of the weak.Don't speak about your freedom in front of the imprisoned, Don't speak about your children in front of those who can't have children, Don't speak about your parents in front of an orphan. Their wounds can't take more. Think about your words in all aspects of live and take into consideration the feelings of others so that you will not find yourself one day alone with your own wounds.
