friends here is a quotation "Don't mix the words with your mood, because you will have many options to change your mood. But we will never get any option to replace our spoken words" ............. I have been coming across these words with my life time experience.

I agree 100% with this bit of wisdom. In the Bible, Jesus says something like that when someone complained about them not washing their hands and eating. He said that it's not what goes in, but what comes out. And in truth, what you eat can sometimes create your mood. But it's what you do or say that counts. I know from experience that when I speak with my emotions, people (especially women) remember. And if it's something that you might say in anger that might hurt someone, try to "bite your tongue" (an expression) because it cannot be taken back if you release it from your mouth.

I am fully agreeing with your valuable words. and some times i am also thinking about this, but yes, our words should be in our control. If not, we will have to pay the cost for it.

sounds like my late hubbys belief. he used to say he didnt want to argue. if things cant be discussed quietely you need to wait till you are not upset and discuss it. because you can forgive something said to you but you cant forget how it made you feel.

Very true indeed my friend, that's why when I'm at work and a little bit hot headed or if workers make a mistake (natural mistakes), I control myself as much as I can or just turn my back cause you cannot get back what ever it is you might be capable of saying once it is said. I want to share something from the holy bible if I may James 1:26 King James Version (KJV) 26If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain. have a nice day

hi reameshchow yes thats so true and I find if I am in a gloomy mood I must stop and think before speaking or else I will say something thats gloomy and pessimistic. I do not like to talk that way as it will make me more gloom and depress others. So I manage a smile and spread only cheerfulness instead. happy makes for happy, sour makes for unhappy.

It is not a good practice to mix words with an angry or madness. But to use words in romantic influence or with a postive aspect is a great thing. Words can tell a story or express ones feelings. But it is best to think before we expound too much or we could be very sorry about what comes out of our mouths.

I agree with that quote. We should always be careful with what we say. When we are too happy or too angry, we shouldn't immediately make a decision and just say anything we want. We have to think first clearly. Once we say something, we can never replace or get them back. So, we should think first before speaking so we will not have any regrets in the future.

Hi, rameshchow: thinking before speak is a good habit, but do not think too long, when i am at university, doctor say to one of student "try to hurry for answering his question", please wait and silent count from one to ten before answering any question. so, i try this method also before speaking, and i found thinking before speaking get you control your self, specially for any discussion.

That is true. Let all be aware of what comes out of our mouth. It is very hard to correct it once damage is done.

Words can express the current state of everyone. Usually, each of us reacts with feelings according to state of that time. The quotation refers, in part to our own rules that each of us may set for ourselves. If we stand firm, and we respect those, we can detach from the current condition, believing that those rules will lead us towards a certain goal. If we want to be civilized, obviously we have to guard of groups with opposing activities. If it happens that we inevitably interspersed with a bad situation, and we give free rein,it does'tt mean that we failed, it only means that we have to work more on this aspect. To get at the moment in which we can control our spoken words, regardless of the state that we have, is actually more much exercise, rather than drastic decision to radicaly change ourself. Flexibility and forgiving of ourselves, help us evolve.
