Thiruvalluvar speaks

Thiruvalluvar speaks

Speak only such words as are worth saying; refrain from profitless and worthless words.

Whatever be the nature of control you may have on other things, be vigilant and have control over your tongue, failing which, you will meet with misery and great trouble

The fire-caused wounds heal soon enough, but not the one caused by a scalding tongue

"Virtue greets him who has mastered anger, and is wise and self controlled"

Taller than the mountain is the stature of the man who rates the things of this world at their value and lives a life with self-control

Evil brings forth evil; evil therefore, is to be feared even more than fire.

The best punishment to those who do evil to you, is to make them feel ashamed by returning good for evil.
