We’ve got to stop this business of talking without thinking. (Linus, cartoon character in Peanuts)
Does it take a character in the funny papers to teach us something we should have learned long ago? When you hear interviews on TV or the radio, you’d often like to refer the “talking heads” to Linus. Whatever happened to common sense? We are receiving a lot of data, but, apparently, we haven’t learned how to evaluate or assimilate it into practical living. Listen, think, and learn.
There is more hope for a fool than for someone who speaks without thinking (Proverbs 19:20).
