Watch your Words – Florence Scovel-Shinn

“By thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.”

A person knowing the power of the word, becomes very careful of his conversation. He has only to watch the reaction of his words to know that they do “not return void.” Through his spoken word, man is continually making laws for himself.

I knew a man who said, “I always miss a car. It invariably pulls out just as I arrive.”

His daughter said: “I always catch a car. It’s sure to come just as I get there.” This occurred for years. Each had made a separate law for himself, one of failure, one of success.
