Mishna Brura, A Modern Classic
A gadol once commented how remarkable it is that a sefer written so recently like the Mishna Brura has achieved a level adherence, that every word is carefully weighed and followed by Yidden from all streams.  This was a reward Mida K'Neged Mida, as its author the Chofetz Chaim, carefully weighed each and every one of his spoken words with the same caution.

"Zachor Eis Asher Asa Hashem L'Miriam BaDerech B'Tzaischem MiMitzrayim"

The Ramban and other Rishonim count, among the Mitzvos Aseh Min HaTorah, the mitzva of remembering and saying with your mouth each day what Hashem did to Miriam when she spoke about her brother Moshe.  The Chofetz Chaim in Shaar Tvunah Perek 12 says that being Mikayem this mitzva can save you from the aveira of Lashon Hara.  More than just saying the pasuk, says the Chofetz Chaim, one must think about the incident in order for it to have its intended effect.
