Choose Wisely

Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.

Rumi  (via theamaranthinesoul)

Rumi’s poetry blows me away. I don’t read enough of it.

This reminds me of a presentation by Mary-Ellen Drummond that  I heard when  I first became a Toastmaster. She said “Our words have power. They can build people up or they can knock people down.”
