the dark voice

Humans are the limbs of one/the same body,
and are from the same essence in their creation.
When the conditions of the time hurt one of these parts,
other parts will suffer from discomfort/restlessness, as well.
If you are indifferent about the misery of others,
it is not deserving to call you a human being.

prattle

To sit in a corner, like one with a cut tongue,
deaf and dumb,
is better than a man who has no command over his tongue.

Saadi
