A Sufi Proverb

Whatever you wish to speak to anybody
Let it pass through three gates:-
The Gatekeeper at the first gate asks
Is it true?
The Gatekeeper at the second gate asks:-
Is it necessary?
The Gatekeeper at the third gate asks:-
Is it kind?
If what you wish to say to anybody can pass through these three gates then say it.
Otherwise, it is better to keep silent
