The cure of an evil tongue must be done at the heart. The weights and wheels are there, and the clock strikes according to their motion. A guileful heart makes a guileful tongue and lips.

Such ware as is made within, such, and no other, can come out.

    Author: Robert Leighton

    Author: A.B. Simpson

Perhaps we have been guilty of speaking against someone and have not realized how it may have hurt them. Then when someone speaks against us, we suddenly realize how deeply such words hurt, and we become sensitive to what we have done.

    Author: Theodore Epp

I find great numbers of moderately good people who think it fine to talk scandal. They regard it as a sort of evidence of their own goodness.

    Author: Frederick W. Faber

Let us follow in Jesus' footsteps. Let people say whatever evil they want to, about us. If we honour God, He will one day honour us.
