From the Heart To the Tongue

Every sacred word was formed by a thought of the heart and the movement of the tongue.
What the eyes see, the ears hear, and the nose breathes, they tell the heart.
It is the heart that brings forth the flood of words, and it is the tongue that repeats every thought of the heart.
