Joan Aiken – “Words Are Like Spices. Too Many Is Worse Than Too Few.

Words are like spices, when you’re not sure,

say few and it’s enough,
because more than enough is noise,


So learn to think before you speak
when you’ve nothing to say, say nothing,


because words once let out, can’t be recalled,
and if they hurt the hearers, the harm may never be undone.
