“Before you speak, let your words pass through three gates:
At the first gate, ask yourself “Is is true?”
At the second gate ask, “Is it necessary?”
At the third gate ask, “Is it kind?”
A Facebook friend shared the above yesterday. This is one I’ve not heard before but I’ll likely be quoting from now on. The picture it was in came from “The Center for Mindful Living.” I did a bit of googling about the quote and found this blog posting on Philiosophical Percolations that describes the origins and meaning further.
More wisdom next week,
