Wisdom

 

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight ,my strength, and my redeemer. Psalms 19:14
 
Wisdom
This is the wisdom, maid and men:
Knowing what to say and when.
Speech is common; thought is rare;
Wise men choose their words with care.
Artist with the Master touch
Never use one phrase too much.
Jesus, preaching on the Mount,
Made His every sentence count.
Lincoln’s Gettysburg address
Needs not one word more or less.
This is wisdom, maids and men:
Knowing what to say and when.
Edgar A. Guest
