Slow speech often achieves more wisdom

                Queen Iocasta, From Euripides, Phoenissae, Line 452
 

βραδεῖς δὲ μῦθοι πλεῖστον ἀνύουσιν σοφόν.

Take advice from a Queen, Jocasta. Slow speech during an argument can only help you. Spend time to reflect on what you want to say before you say it. Don’t say something you will only regret later.
