Most of my whoopins came from running my mouth too much! It’s usually the moment when I’ve made my point, but just gotta get one more word in, that’s when it all blows up.
He who guards his lips guards his life, but he who speaks rashly will come to ruin. Proverbs 13:3
The best way to get yourself in a lot of trouble is to say whatever comes to mind. There’s a reason we have lips. There meant to keep things out, and to keep other things in. When we zip our lips, we save our life.
