No harsh words please



''Great thoughts speak only to the thoughtful mind, but great actions speak to all mankind.''

                
  Words, spoken softly , always move  the heart of a listener and the same  words, when spoken harshly leave a bitter taste in the mouth. The words may  be the same but bitter and  harsh words  act as sharp knife .
        Even a small child understands the difference very  well.  If the mother shouts at the child, asking him to drink milk, the child will throw tantrums, but the same order, if given  gently, will be followed  instantly. With one word softly  spoken  you can control an army, but  harsh words  will not  take  you anywhere. The word, ‘please’ can result in wonders.
 Harsh words  create misunderstanding between couples, relatives, and friends. Such misunderstandings can lead to permanent animosity. The person who always utters harsh words will  never get peace of mind and is likely to get  heart diseases.
In  offices  we find many of these species. They  have  made it their  nature  to  address   their subordinates  very  rudely, which is very insulting to them. Even when they call them, they address them in a very  demeaning  way, which is very insulting for the juniors.   Such  people  are seen with hatred. Just by one soft  word, you can win over the other person.
                                Many parents also speak harshly with their children. On one side we teach our children to be  respectful  and decent  while talking to others, we ourselves  call them  ‘stupid’  ‘blockhead’  etc. which makes the child’s tender heart  wonder how there are different norms for adults and children.

  Hurt people, hurt people. That's how pain patterns get passed on, generation after generation after generation. Break the chain today. Meet anger with sympathy, contempt with compassion and cruelty with kindness. Greet grimaces with smiles. Forgive and forget about finding fault. Love is the weapon of the future’’. ~Yehuda Berg :)

  3. Happy words paint endless smiles, and swallow troubles whole. But hurtful words are such that pierce the heart and weigh the soul. Loved the quote from D Tutu too :)

  8. Life is too short to let harsh life ruin relationships. Respect matters a lot and speaks volume about a person. Your father was a learned man and respect begets respect, can wring change in a person or organisation:)
