Speech is what causes the human mind to stir; whether good or
bad, honor or disgrace, it is all determined by such.
The mind is originally empty, only showing traces upon
reflecting on matters; practice self-discipline when viewing the
external to maintain inner peace.
Prevent unwholesomeness and maintain honesty, listen not to
what is inappropriate.
If one is in accord with propriety, one will be prosperous; if
driven by desire, danger will arise. Upon impetuous behavior,
such thoughts must be restrained, self disciplined, and prudent.
