  9. 9. “Speaking.”<br />‘To speak’ and ‘to speak well’ are two things.  A fool may talk, but a wise man speaks.  ~Ben Johnson <br />It is better to keep one's mouth shut, and be thought a fool, than to open it and resolve all doubt.   ~Abraham Lincoln <br />The words you choose to say something are just as important as the decision to speak.  ~Author Unknown <br />
