Yahya b. Muadh

Yahya b. Muadh said: Hearts are like pots, they boil over with what is in them. Tongues are like ladles; look to a person’s speech, his tongue scoops out for you what is in his heart: sweet, sour, potable, salty, or something else. The flavor of his heart is determined by what his tongue scoops out.
