Humility, Life Lessons

Beware of the Small Things

A witty person knows how to say things. But a wise person knows whether it should be said or not. So true! Beware of the small things. They could be powerful.

A horse is turned by the small bit. A huge ship is steered by a small helm. A huge forest fire can be ignited by a small spark. And then the tongue, that small part of the human body can cause conflicts, fights and even wars.

How difficult it is to tame it; but those who do are wise and those who don’t are not.
