Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders;
make the most of every opportunity.
Let your conversation be always full of grace,
seasoned with salt,
so that you may know how to answer everyone.
I haven't looked it up but I would imagine that salt is the most popular seasoning in the world. I'm not a pepper person. It can be thrown out and never missed as far as I'm concerned. Salt is another story. I probably use too much according to the health experts but it would be very difficult for me to give it up.
Salt applied to conversation?
Hmmm...probably don't use enough.
