Verbal restraint is fast becoming a forgotten virtue. Thanks to tell-all tabloids and hide-nothing television talk shows, nothing is restrained. When was the last time anyone in the media blushed? Yet restraint and control always work in your favor. Learn to keep confidences, especially the confidences of your family, and your friends. Come to be known for keeping secrets! It's part of having character marked by strength and dignity.
Wise men store up knowledge, but with the mouth of the foolish, ruin is at hand.
