A Sticky Situation

"Words are adhesives that stick to our heart. They can draw blood or give love. In knowing this, let the words that fall from your lips be as precise as a surgeon's hand and as gentle as a feather grazing your inner skin."

There ya go!

I had to search for years to find the quote below to really realize the importance of what just seemed to roll right out of your heart!

"Every word is endowed with a spirit, therefore the speaker or expounder should carefully deliver his words at the appropriate time and place, for the impression which each word maketh is clearly evident and perceptible. The Great Being saith: One word may be likened unto fire, another unto light, and the influence which both exert is manifest in the world. Therefore an enlightened man of wisdom should primarily speak with words as mild as milk, that the children of men may be nurtured and edified thereby and may attain the ultimate goal of human existence which is the station of true understanding and nobility. And likewise He saith: One word is like unto springtime causing the tender saplings of the rose-garden of knowledge to become verdant and flourishing, while another word is even as a deadly poison. It behoveth a prudent man of wisdom to speak with utmost leniency and forbearance so that the sweetness of his words may induce everyone to attain that which befitteth man's station."

(Baha'u'llah, Tablets of Baha'u'llah, p. 172)

Your quote totally rocks. If I had known it, I probably wouldn't have come up with mine. LOL.
