The Inherent Purity of Language

How can a tongue [or language] be defiled? Like a noble woman, so is language. Only uncouth people talk about their defilement.

[sarvaTHA vyavaharthavyam kuthO hyavachanIyathAyaTHA sthrINAm thaTHA vAchAm sADHuthvE durjanO janaha //

सर्वथा व्यवहर्तव्यं कुतॊ ह्यवचनीयता / यथा स्त्रीणां तथा वाचां साधुत्वॆ दुर्जनॊ जनः //]
