Francis Quarles – Give not thy tongue too great a liberty

Share this quote:
Francis QuarlesGive not thy tongue too great a liberty, lest it take thee prisoner. A word unspoken is like thy sword in thy scabbard; if vented, the sword is in another’s hand. If thou desire to be held wise, be so wise as to hold thy tongue.

Francis Quarles
