An Englishman's never so natural as when he's holding his tongue.
There's an element of tongue-in-cheek in every one of our songs. Walking off into the sunset, holding hands, and being married forever was not exactly a brand new idea.
I have often repented speaking, but never of holding my tongue.
Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
Fire and swords are slow engines of destruction, compared to the tongue of a Gossip.
