Another Aspect of Right Speech

exagExaggerated expressions accentuate and intensify afflicted emotions. Don’t say “I adore this food” or “I love this car” when a simple “I like” is enough to describe your emotional relationship with a mere object. Don’t say “I hate the heat” or “I detest this music” when you simply dislike them.

Modulate your emotions while describing them. Use language with precision, and you will discover that extreme emotions are conceptual fabrications.
