Sefer Yom Leyom Speech

Filed under: Blog Torah,Daily Concepts,Sefer Yom Lyom — Reb Moshe @ 3:58 pm

1. People underestimate the power of speech
2. Speech has the power to give life or the power to destroy
3. The Shechinah is drawn to someone who speaks in a soft tone and is drawn away from a loud strong voice.
4. Talk what you need to and not more.
5. A wise person can connect any conversation to Torah thoughts. So much so that he elevates the world.
6. Talking to much can make you more confused. While talking a little can unconfuse you.
7. If a person thought they were being recorded, they would watch what they say carefully. The angels are always surrounding us and recording our words in order to later testify for and against us.
8. Be in the habit of not talking about others even in cases where it is not loshon hara & then you will never come to err.
9. Better is the person that listens then he who is always talking.
10. Talking positive turns even bad into good.
11. Talking slang & without thinking is as bad for a person as eating rotten foods.
12. A person can be speaking while really being in a world much higher then revealed through his words.
13. If only we knew how much our words have damaged others by speaking lightly without thinking.
14. It can never be good to tease a person with words even if they are accepting that it is in jest.
15. A person can succeed in all relationships if they master the art of speaking.
16. Speaking to a young child with love and sweetness is one of the most important things in the world.
17. Everything about a person is revealed by their tone of voice & the way they gather together what they want to say.
18. When you fix the way you talk to others, you are also purifying your heart.

    holy haiku mad man’s journey
    Current mood: awake
    Category: Religion and Philosophy

    crickets and frogs song

    a homeless stroll on the road

    perverse thought stops sounds

    G-d’s choir tuned in

    mania fueled by lessons

    nature falls in step

    a seeker loves truth

    G-d’s devoted lover’s path

    so one touches life
