Among a man's many good possessions,
A good command of speech has no equal.
Prosperity and ruin issue from the power of the tongue.
Therefore, guard yourself against thoughtless speech.
The content of worthy speech binds friends more closely,
And its eloquence draws even enemies to listen.
Judge the nature of your listeners and speak accordingly.
There is nothing more virtuous or valuable than this.
Speak out your speech. Once it is known,
No speech can be spoken to refute that speech.
To speak so listeners long to hear more and to listen
So others' meaning is grasped are the ideals of the impeccably great.
In a war of words none can defeat an eloquent man
Who never succumbs to fear or confusion.
Upon finding men whose forceful speech is couched
In cogent and enchanting ways, the world swiftly gathers around.
Unaware of the artful use of a few flawless words,
Men become enamored with excessive syllables.
Men who cannot communicate their knowledge to others
Resemble a bouquet of unfragrant flowers in full bloom.
