“Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out; so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.” Proverbs 26:20

Or

“Without wood, fire goes out; without a gossip, conflict dies down.” HCSB version

Have you ever stopped to think how much more peaceful this world would be if everybody would just shut up? So often, we speak before we think what the consequences of our tongue-wagging will be.

Listen, understand, consider THEN speak. Many times we’ll find that what we wanted to say really doesn’t need to be said at all.
