Ambrose Bierce (1842 - 1914) American Journalist and Editorialist
How many time have we heard someone say they ‘mis-spoke’, and then had to say what they ‘really meant to say’?
Always P-a-u-s-e, think, then speak. It will cut down on ‘foot-in-mouth’ disease.
This quote kind of remind me of myself. When I am angry, my verbal skills, in any language I speak, is amazing. I cannot explain it. That does not mean I should be angry more often because, as in the quote, I regret it. Passion is another aspect that makes my language skills better. So it is all down to emotional flames. 🙂
