THE TALKATIVE

Blessed is the soul who never says anything just for what he can get out of it. He should never be hasty in his words or open his heart to everyone, but he should think hard before he speaks.

Woe to that soul who does not keep the favours God has given him to himself; people should see them only through his good works, but he wants to tell everybody about them, hoping he will get something out of it. In this way, he has received his reward; and it does not do his listeners any good.

St. Francis of Assisi
