Speaking with New Tongues

"Judge a man by the company he keeps," is a familiar adage which would lose none of its meaning if it were made to include the language he employs. No effort of the imagination is needed to discover a man's nationality by his speech; indeed, it is comparatively easy to tell by this token whether he is cultured and refined, or the reverse.

No one ever recognized this more clearly than did Jesus when he said, "A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. .... For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned."
