The Torah tells us (Exodus 7:7) "Moses was 80 years old... when he spoke to Pharaoh." The number 80 is represented in Hebrew by the letter "pei" which hints to the word "peh" meaning "mouth." It was at this age that Moses confronted Pharaoh--the letters of whose name spell "peh rah" or "mouth of evil."

Rabbi Aron Raskin is a superb speaker and he truly fulfills the
concept of words that go out of the heart (of the speaker) enter into the hear
(of the listener). Rabbi Raskin really has a great wisdom in G-d's Holy Torah
and it is very clear from his speaking that he has a true inner desire to give
the benefit of his wisdom to other people who stand to greatly benefit from
his wisdom.

Not to say something we have to recant later.
Very beautiful words, and a very rewarding advice about our personal speaking. Better to meditate before speaking in order not to say something we have to repent for later: better to imitate Moshe Rabbeinu instead of imitate Pharaoh.
