Words - weigh them well

Be careful not to make grand statements; do not commit yourself lightly. Why? Because you will provoke the invisible world, and then you will have great difficulty in not going back on your decisions or in honouring your commitments, or you may not even succeed at all. A man swears that he will never marry... Then, a little while later, he meets a woman; she is the last possible person to make him happy, but he's crazy about her; he marries, and that's when all his troubles begin. People who are too sure of themselves provoke certain entities in the invisible world, which then want to put them to the test to see what they are capable of and teach them a lesson. How many people are forced to admit that they have ended up doing the opposite of what they had solemnly sworn or promised! There are countries where it is the custom for people to touch wood after saying certain words. This custom may seem like superstition, but it is very meaningful: it shows that people are aware that when they speak they provoke invisible entities, and they make this gesture to ward off fate.
