The dignified person controls his or her speech. Our speech at all times reveals to others our inward feelings and thoughts. If we ever have evil in our hearts, this evil will eventually be manifested by what we say or do. On the other hand, if we are good in our hearts, others will know the goodness of our hearts by the words of our mouth.



The dignified person respects the property and belongings of others. Whoever that steals from his or her neighbor does not respect others. The thief is always selfish and has no consideration for the hard work of others who labor with their own hands to acquire what he steals from them.
