A tongue has no bone but it can be lethal..



"A tongue has no bones, but it's already strong enough to break a heart, and we can't take back the words we've spoken or heal the wounds we've made, so be careful with your words."


Triple Filter Test story. --- One day the great philosopher came upon an acquaintance who ran up to him excitedly and said, "Socrates, do you know what I just heard about one of your students?"



"Wait a moment," Socrates replied. "Before you tell me I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the Triple Filter Test."



"Triple filter?" asked the man.



"That's right," Socrates continued. "Before you talk to me about my student let's take a moment to filter what you're going to say. The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?"



"No," the man said, "actually I just heard about it."



"All right," said Socrates. "So you don't really know if it's true or not. Now let's try the second filter, the filter of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my student something good?"



"No, on the contrary ...".



"So," Socrates continued, "you want to tell me something bad about him, even though you're not certain it's true?".



The man shrugged, a little embarrassed. Socrates continued." You may still pass the test though, because there is a third filter - the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my student going to be useful to me?"



"No, not really..."



"Well," concluded Socrates, "if what you want to tell me is neither True nor Good nor even Useful, why tell it to me at all?"
Have you ever tried living up to it? Do you believe people can?



Well.. Don't just sit there! Share this lesson! this is a good one!
