One who has knowledge uses words with restraint

The words we choose!

 

They had a dream

What words did you speak?

They had troubles

What words did you offer?

They had some hopes

What words were said?

While words themselves

have no sharp edges,

They can lift

They can put down

They can build

They can tear apart

They can support

They can mock

They can counsel

They can judge.

What we do with our words

is of our own choosing

We can join

We can divide

We can encourage

or discourage

We can support

or we can deter!

Our determination of the words to choose

can do so many things!

    Amen! Nicely said. Words can be the sharpest weapons or the greatest healers.

    A lack of intelligence and/or education is indicated by the presence of profanity in their communication. Those who aren’t intelligent enough to express themselves resort to profanity to make up for their lack of education and intelligence. If you look around sites like Thoughts, it becomes obvious who they are.

      You seem to be of the same opinion about vulgarity as my mother was

    Words are more treacherous and powerful than we think. Jean-Paul Sartre.. I so agree. I am not as aware of this as I should be.

      I don’t think any of us are as aware as we should be

    Lucky I only went to a 65 children school and learnt how to eat lunch only plus I eat my words regularly too which is why I don’t say much I’m always full
    But on a serious note yes I concur words are very dangerous to those who are callous with them

      Hopefully you’ve kept your words palatable so that when you eat them they don’t cause intestinal problems
