I talk too much to say so little.

http://bible.com/59/pro.10.19-20.ESV
When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent.  The tongue of the righteous is choice silver; the heart of the wicked is of little worth.

Volume does not equal quality or wisdom.

http://bible.com/59/pro.17.28.ESV
Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent.

I need to listen.

http://bible.com/59/jas.1.19.ESV
Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger;

Sometimes I act very foolish.

http://bible.com/59/pro.18.2.ESV
A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.

I’m in trouble.

http://bible.com/59/pro.21.23.ESV
Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble.

I’m really in trouble.

http://bible.com/59/pro.29.20.ESV
Do you see a man who is hasty in his words? There is more hope for a fool than for him.

Lord,  help me.

http://bible.com/59/psa.141.3.ESV
Set a guard, O Lord , over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!

I hear you,  Lord. Help me.

http://bible.com/59/pro.30.32.ESV
If you have been foolish, exalting yourself, or if you have been devising evil, put your hand on your mouth.
