Quotes of the Saints

No matter how good food is, if mixed with poison, it may cause the death of him who eats it. So it is with conversation. A single bad word, an evil action, an unbecoming joke, is often enough to harm one or more young listeners, and may later on cause them to lose God’s grace.

-St. John Bosco
