'He who keeps his mouth, keeps his life'. This is a difficult one NP.
Ouch. Or should I say "Glug, glug?"
And writers alas...
Yep, the writers, as Layla syas! Readers have the option of pulling the plug, unless terminally addicted.
Beautifully written & insightful!
Sailors aren't alone. In the ebb and flow of conversation, misunderstandings or drownings, can happen to anyone.
Words are mankinds's most deadly weapon.
Its truly amazing what kind of reputation sailors have for their language and conduct off of a boat.
Yet who didn't risk goes nowhere
Wonderful, Marty. Words can certainly be dangerous.
"The unnamable is the eternally real. Naming is the origin of all particular things." Lao-tsu was SO right on about this aspect of the human condition, man. Words and language are tools of communication, yet in attempting to demystify or clarify feelings and emotions, they leave something lost in translation. Something experiential. I've always found that ironic.
Ah yes, indeed. The statement "mouth like a sailor" comes from somewhere doesn't it?Wishing you a lovely day.
So true and it's not only with sailors but quite common in most people.
Excellent aphorism, Marty. One can say too much and drown in words, so using words more judiciously is prudent.
The wrong words are dangerous.
Words are the most powerful weapons.
Loved this one! I wrote something similar on my recent blog. Sooooo true!
