Think before you speak, think before you write


"A person should not speak and orate before the nation’s ears until he reviews that which he wishes to say once, twice, thrice and four times, studying it well, before speaking…

"This is regarding speech; when a person will engrave it by hand and write it on a book, it would be appropriate for him to review it one thousand times, were it possible…"

(Maimonides, Iggeret haSh'mad)

Have a great day,
