“Words Should Be Weighed, Not Counted” a Jewish Saying (part two)

April 12, 2011

Sing along with me “it’s only words and words are all I have….” Rita Coolidge. Words are powerful.  Words can also be hurtful and used as weapons to hurt the one you are speaking to or about.

 “Malicious talk is like an arrow. A person who unsheathes a sword can regret his intention and return it to its sheath. But the arrow cannot be retrieved” – Midrash Tehillim

 “That which you see and hear, you cannot help; but that which you say depends on you alone”. – Zohar
