Sacred Tree

However great and experienced you are, you can't go by your instinct all the time. At times, you need to think and then speak out.

It often happens that first and hastily spoken words have to be regretted sooner or later.

It is not that there is no opportunity to correct what has been said already. But those words may have already been analysed and etched somewhere at the back of the listener's head. Usually, what you say first is what you mean the most. But there are occasions where you'd want to change your words. Then why not be careful and make it a point to always think before speaking however sure you are? Haste indeed makes waste... haste harms, haste hurts.

I remember the golden quote 'words are like arrows'

We all know it, but still keep on doing it... However self control you might employ, there are simply times when you just can't hold back!

someone said something to ya babes? we can go and beat him/her up, what say?
there is one thing i don't agree though. the first thing that comes out of you in a situation may not necessarily be your take on it (or what you mean the most). humans are complicated, think of them as a continuous functions. if you sample (digitize) the function you are bound to get quantization errors :P

Shruti,

True. It happens if one starts mouth working before putting brain into gear. But at times one can not help it as the reaction to something is immediate.

Take care

Rajat: yea.. arrows when they're bad. Good words dont hurt so.. :)

Espirit: Right, Vishv. Should learn from one's mistakes sooner.

Sanket: omg that is a lot like me. When I was a kid also I used to think a lot bfore I spoke and my friends' parents used to think I'm too proud!!!

Pri: mmm yea, u'r right. First isn't always right. And, someone did say something, but not to hurt. It was just something I couldn't take. Well, I chose not to let it prick me too much. Communication helps a hell lot, u know :) And nonono no one to beat up! :P

Jack: hehe.. well put. And yea, immediate reactions.. those are what just make it go all wrong at times.

So true, what you say first is always something you mean the most.

I usually never think and talk because people I know I REALLY KNOW would not mis understand and the ones who do mis understand are the ones i don't want in my life :)

Yes haste sure can make people judge you, but WTH , we din come on mother earth to pass a test :P
