We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.
The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best.
It takes more than just a good looking body. You've got to have the heart and soul to go with it.
First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do.
Keep silence for the most part, and speak only when you must, and then briefly.
