TODAY

To-morrow — oh, ’twill never be,
If we should live a thousand years!
Our time is all to-day, to-day,
The same, though changed; and while it flies
With still small voice the moments say:
“To-day, to-day, be wise, be wise.”
~James Montgomery, To-day

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:34

restraint

Blessed is the man who, having nothing to say, abstains from giving us wordy evidence of the fact.” George Eliot

The one who has knowledge uses words with restraint,
and whoever has understanding is even-tempered.

Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent,
and discerning if they hold their tongues. Proverbs 17:27,28

speak wisely

Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something. Plato

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. Ephesians 4:29
