AN 5:198 Well-spoken Words

Translated from the Pali by Nyanaponika Thera and Bhikkhu Bodhi

If speech has five marks, O monks, it is well spoken, not badly spoken, blameless and above reproach by the wise. What are these five marks?

It is speech that is timely, true, gentle, purposeful, and spoken with a mind of loving-kindness.
