“The trouble with talking too fast is you may say something you haven't thought of yet.”
 --Ann Landers

“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly  endless.”
--Mother Teresa

“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen." 
--Winston Churchill
