    Oct 4 2012: Say anything positive to someone and if it isn't positive only tell it if you really care for that person.

    Remember that anything you say from your thoughts has something to tell about you.

    Oct 4 2012: Why do we think that others care what we are or what we think? It's a form of pride, IMHO. Instead of that, we need to show that we care about others. And words are not the best way to show it. Twitter and Facebook are over-rated. It's far more important to listen what others say.
  • Oct 4 2012: The caterpillar in "Alice in wonderland" says : say what you think and think what you say .
    I try to do that :)

      Oct 4 2012: There is another saying that I love: "Having opened your mouth, think; and having thought, close your mouth."

      This is one of the most difficult things to do. "...no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison."

      This underlines the importance to watch carefully what we think. What we say is a mere consequence.
      "Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people." - Eleanor Roosevelt

    Oct 4 2012: Yes words are very important and can have many different definitions based on the persons up bringing. However if you are thinking about complimenting someone I think you should say something. If you are thinking about saying something negative you should probably not say something unless the asked. Now if say someone say's does these pants make my butt look big? Then you should answer truthfully whether its a positive compliment or not. Everybody.... everybody could use a little more constructive criticism in their life.

    Oct 3 2012: It is important to say what is on your mind; but it is equally important to be considerate and to think of the impact of the word(s) on its hearers.
    The words are imporatant; also the presentation of the word(s).
