Note to Self

Proverbs 25:15-19 (English Standard Version)
15With patience a ruler may be persuaded,
and a soft tongue will break a bone.
16If you have found honey, eat only enough for you,
lest you have your fill of it and vomit it.
17Let your foot be seldom in your neighbor’s house,
lest he have his fill of you and hate you.
18A man who bears false witness against his neighbor
is like a war club, or a sword, or a sharp arrow.
19Trusting in a treacherous man in time of trouble
is like a bad tooth or a foot that slips.

That's an arresting image a soft tongue breaking a bone. I want to be that kind of person if for no other reason than the occurrence of such an individual is so rare that it is bound to draw attention.
