Five Keys to Right Speech; Buddhism and The Dharma Great Middle Way ~ —Buddha Shakyamuni

A statement endowed with five factors is well-spoken, not ill-spoken.

It is blameless and un-faulted by knowledgeable people. Which five?

It is spoken at the right time. It is spoken in truth.

It is spoken affectionately. It is spoken beneficially.

It is spoken with a mind of good-will. —Buddha Shakyamuni
