Tongue, The Deadliest Weapon

Human tongue has many uses. We use it for tasting. It helps in chewing and swallowing. And it aids in talking or singing. But do you know that our tongue is so powerful and deadly? It hurts a person in an instant. It causes sleepless nights and loss of appetite. It can break a family apart. And it can also cause suicide. So we should think before we talk. Listen and understand before we speak. Never think that words are harmless It can cause wounds even if it is a joke. Be very careful with the words we are going to use. Because once it is said, it can never be taken back or deleted. We can forgive but we cannot forget. Those harsh words will linger in our hearts and mind as long as we live.

Be sure to taste your words before you spit them out.

People most of the days like to tell false tales about other people just for the fun of it. But most of the time when they envy some one and had no clue about it.

I call them backbiters.. Because they are envious, they make up stories about that person and laugh at his failures.

Very true my friend, words do quite a lot of damage. But they can also be used to do a lot of good, if we use them wisely.

That's why we have to use our tongue wisely. Especially if we are teaching or talking to children. Because it is said that whatever children can see or hear from adults, they will think that it is right and correct...

I truly agree with this. As it is commonly said; "Sticks and stones may break your bones but words are ghosts that haunts you".

Maybe not only twice but many times before we say what we want to say especially if it is harsh...

"Less words , less mistakes" So if we can avoid talking much, then we should avoid it.

George Bernard shaw has said - "Till you have not spoken, words are your slave. Once you have spoken, you are slave of your words." It is, therefore, we should be very careful with out words, when speaking to others. One slip of tongue could cost us dearly.

That's right... Though it is sometimes difficult to control but we should always put in mind that our tongue can destroy or even kill a person.

@magallon We are human, sometimes we falter, even if we do not wish. Yes, bitter words could prove to be very harmful and could be more dangerous than any physical injury.

I think a human brain is more deadly than the tongue since it`s the power from the brain that made those tongues actions dangerous

yes, the actions of the tongue are the manifestations of what our brain is thinking. Without the tongue, we cannot turn into words what our brain is dictating us. We cannot say it without the tongue.

@magallon Yes but we can still express it without a tongue even those hands can be dangerous

Words if bad can really hurt a person and make them feel really sad inside. Some people do not think before they open their mouths.

I agree... they should be very careful and should think many many times before saying a word because all people listen to them. Their words could have a positive or negative effect on them.
