Politicians would do well to heed the words of Buddha:
- Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or evil.
- The tongue like a sharp knife...Kills without drawing blood.
- Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present.
- It is better to travel well than to arrive.
- Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.
