话,

 
                      When talking to a stranger, it is wise to be somewhat reserved.

解释 ( paraphrase )
逢人只说三分话,未可全抛一片心 对一般的人,说话只宜讲三分留七分, 千万不要把心里的话全抛了出去。这条谚语告诉我们:社会太复杂,什么样的人都有。轻易相信别人,容易上当。所以说话应当谨慎,留有余地。

This proverb cautions us to be careful not to reveal our inner thoughts to a person before we know him or her properly. Being incautious, one is liable to be cheared.

造句 ( example )
俗话说:“逢人只说三分话,不可全抛一片心。” 这是保护自己的一种方法。
