    Here’s a little limerick type phrase I thought up (not following any rules but simply how it came to me):

    Muttered words still matter
    though they seem a mumbled mess.
    If your message sounds like clatter,
    Then you haven’t done your best.
    Move your lips and make sounds matter.
    Making better use of less.
    This eliminates vain chatter
    And gives our ears a rest.
    Converse, my child, with clarity,
    and keep it clean and clear,
    making all the mutter matter
    so that listeners will hear.

    As a child, whenever I was pouty or whiny my dad would say, “You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.” Isn’t that the truth?

    Goes right along with the scripture you listed on your Quotes Page: “Pleasant words are a honeycomb, Sweet to the soul and healing to the bones” (Proverbs 16:24).

    Why is there a top line on lined paper if we never use it?
