Foul Mouth, Foul Mind

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

.

It is a

Blessing

from God

that man

has been

given the ability

to communicate

thoughts and ideas by using vocal sounds.

Those sounds, represented by letters, become words.

Since these words are American, (English?) all references

will regard the American language.

The Oxford English (from England) Dictionary contains over

250,000 entries, and many are recognized as uniquely American.

These words are usually referred to as slang.

The dictionary does not count foreign language

words in common use in America.

We saute our food (French).

We study martial arts, Judo and Karate (Japanese).

The dictionary does not count medical and scientific terms.

There are ten times as many more words in use today

than when Shakespeare was living.

With so many options available, why do people swear.

By swearing we do not mean taking an oath,

as in President Obama was sworn in and took

the oath of office twice.

Foul language, swearing, taking the name of a

Higher Power in vain, are not necessary when you

have tens of thousands of words available

to convey your message.

Shock value??

Ignorance??

Lazy and stupid??

Speak up.

The mind can become saturated with bad habits and

using foul language is a bad habit.

You are know by the friends you keep and the level

of language they speak.

“Watch your thoughts;
they become words.
Watch your words;
they become actions.
Watch your actions;
they become habits.
Watch your habits;
they become character.
Watch your character;
it becomes your destiny.”
Frank Outlaw

Think.

Change.

If you do not use foul language, fine,

improve your standing among your friends

and learn a new word every day.

Better yet, use a few well selected words more often.

Please and Thank You.

I Love you.

May I help you.

“Conversation would be vastly improved
by the constant use of four simple words:
I do not know.”
Andre Maurois

Attempt to make it through today by not using any of the

seven words you cannot say on television. (George Carlin)

Try to talk to friends without using any four lettered slang.

Do not huff and puff, speak softly,

but carry a big stick. (Roosevelt paraphrased)

No screaming and yelling allowed. (Children,Spouse or Family)

Ask your Higher Power to help you select the best words

for the right occasion.

“No matter what people tell you,
words and ideas can change the world.”
Robin Williams

May the words you use today change the world for the better.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.

ME and the Boss
