News Item 137. Mishlei 15-02 (Eloquence)

A new proverb has been posted to the Mishlei section as of today (Wednesday, May 6).This proverb compares the carefully focused talk of wise men to the uncontrolled flow of confusing thoughts expressed by fools. The tongue of the wise as an instrument of speech is associated with the forming of insightful and meaningful speech. It is contrasted with the mouth of fools which is seen as an opening through which undifferentiated thoughts are continuously flowing.
