_слово; сила слова
actions speak louder than words better ask, than go astray better the foot slip than the tongue better one word in time than two afterwards brevity is the soul of wit by work you get money, by talk you get knowledge easier said than done empty vessels make the greatest sound fine words butter no parsnips fine words dress ill deeds first think, then speak a flow of words is no proof of wisdom a fool is known by his conversation a good tongue is a good weapon a good word costs no more than a bad one great barkers are no biters great cry and little wool a great talker may be no fool, but he is one that relies on him great talkers are like broken pitchers: everything runs out of them great talkers are little doers hard words break no bones he that talks much errs much he that talks much lies much he who says little may be a fool or a genius he who says what he likes shall hear what he does not like hear much, speak little hold your tongue an honest man's word is as good as his bond if your swear you will catch no fish immodest words are in all cases indefensible it is not with saying "honey, honey" that sweetness comes into the mouth a kind word goes a long way least said, soonest mended let not your tongue cut your throat a man never becomes an orator if he has anything to say a man of words and not of deeds is like a garden full of weeds many speak much who cannot speak well many a truth is spoken is jest more have repented speech than silence much ado about nothing never answer a question until it is asked no sooner said than done one tongue is enough for two women out of the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks pleasant words are valued but do not cost much the pen is mightier than the sword pigs grunt about everything and nothing say little but think more say little; write less; print least silly question, silly answer speak of angels and they flap their wings speak when you are spoken to; come when you are called speech is silver(n), silence is golden speech is the gift of all but the thought of few speech was given a man to conceal his thoughts a still tongue makes a wise head ten measures of talk were sent down from heaven, and women took nine it is not every question that deserves an answer the tongue always returns to the sore tooth the tongue is not steel but it cuts the tongue is the only tool that grows sharper with use an unkind word is better left unspoken what is writ is writ a woman fights with her tongue a woman's hair is long, but her tongue is longer a word before is worth two behind a word spoken is past recalling a word to the wise is sufficient words and deeds are not weighed in the same balance words are but wind words are the wise man's counters and the fool's money words cut more than swords words pay no debts the worst wheel of the cart makes the most noise wounds made by words are hard to heal you are master of the unspoken word; the spoken word is master of you
