Well done is better than well said. (Poor Richard’s Almanack)

There are times when we’d like to share those wise words of Benjamin Franklin with people we hear, speaking in glowing terms of what they promise to do for us. We’ll hear a lot of that sort of thing during this election year, so we must listen and evaluate candidates carefully and practice the same caution in our own pronouncements.

The more words you speak, the less they mean. (Ecclesiastes 6:11)

The heart of the godly thinks carefully before speaking. (Proverbs 15:38)
