Not uttering profitles
To disgust people with empty words Is to be despised by all. Vain speech in public is worse Than a wrong done to a friend. He that multiplies empty words Declares loud his want of worth. Vain words of inconsequence in an assembly Rob one of any gain or goodness. Men of worth, speaking nonsense, Will lose greatness and esteem. Call him not a man who loves idle words. Call him rather chaff among men. Even unpleasant words may be spoken, But the wise should avoid idle speech. The wise who weigh their worth Refrain from words that have no grain of worth. The clear-eyed and spotless never even forgetfully Say things that are meaningless. Should you speak, speak useful words. Never indulge in vain speech.
