Power in words
Real asset is the gift of speech. That gift is a class apart from all other gifts. Speech can both make and mar, And hence guard it from negligence. A speech should hold fast the convinced And be pleasing even to the unconvinced. Speak to the capacity of the audience. Nothing more virtuous or valuable than this. Utter not a word without making sure There is no other word to beat it. To speak as desired and gain from what others say Is the hallmark of spotless men. An eloquent, tireless and fearless speaker Can rarely be prevailed upon by any one. The world will rush and listen to those Who can to speak orderly and pleasingly. Those fond of talking much Cannot be brief and faultless. Those who can't express what they have learnt Are a bunch of flowers without scent.
