- Truth is the only approach appropriate to living in the present. Liars have to be mindful of their past lies to be consistent, and this in turn corrupts their future. Avoid all that complication: be truthful. It's much easier.
- Don't expect applause.
- Refraining from wrong speech means not only telling the truth, but avoiding a lot of useless and frivolous talk. Things come to mind and we talk without considering their usefulness. Restraint of speech is very helpful in making the mind peaceful. Our speech should be gentle and cultivate harmony and unity.
