One of the things that we, as parents, are continually drilling into our children is the concept that our words have meaning. Or, to put it another way, "think before you speak". Now we have this quote from Benjamin Zander to help support our harping.
I will never say anything that couldn’t stand as the last thing I ever say. — Benjamin Zander, Music Director of the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra
I think if everyone kept this idea in the back of our minds, there'd be a lot less talking going on.
