Speech

Henry Van Dyke

Never believe anything bad about anybody unless you positively know it to be true; never tell even that unless you feel that it is absolutely necessary – and remember that God is listening while you tell it.

Aesop

After all is said and done, more is said than done.

Dale Carnegie

What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
