“When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent.”
“The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable, but the mouth of the wicked, what is perverse.”
“Whoever guards his mouth preserves his life; he who opens wide his lips comes to ruin.”
“The heart of him who has understanding seeks knowledge, but the mouths of fools feed on folly.”
“The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer, but the mouth of the wicked pours out evil things.”

Love—self-sacrificing devotion for others.
