“The tongue also is a fire … it corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.”

  1. Interesting quote, is it your own thinking? “Right speech” is one of the elements of Buddha’s 8 fold path with the same significance as your quote here 👍

    • Hi Dr B ~ Not my own insight. The quote is from James 3:6, from the first century. In this chapter, James presents how hard it is to control our speech. Yet, how significant our speech is. Glad you liked it and thanks for stopping by my blog! 😊

  2. We should all learn to put our brain in gear, before opening our mouths. Words can be powerful, both for bad and good. Allan
