Think before we speak.
There is a Chinese saying: "A speech will either prosper or ruin a nation."

A lady and her rich husband visited their construction site.
A worker who wore a helmet saw her and shouted, "Hi, Rosie! Remember me? We used to date in school."
On the way home, her husband teased her, "You are fortunate to have married me. Otherwise you will be the wife of a construction worker."
She answered, "You should be grateful you married me! Otherwise, he would have been the millionaire and not you."
