The rose speaks of love silently,
in a language known only to the heart.

May 30th - love is a lanquage

I do believe that love is a language we all understand.  Words are not always necessary, but an article I read gave a list  of charming words to use when we want to express our love by complimenting  or praising someone.  


Word #1.  Wondrous

It sounds and means the same thing that wonderful does, except it has a bit of a twist. It’s not used all that often, which makes it sound extra special



Word #2.  Breathtaking

This one is for special occasions. You don’t want to overuse it, and make it appear meaningless. When you see someone adorned in their best clothes, ready to head to an important event, telling them they’re breathtaking will give them extra confidence. It may be just the boost they need .


Word #3 Elegant 

Calling someone beautiful doesn’t always do their appearance justice, but calling someone elegant makes them think that they look like royalty. It suggests that they’re not only classy, but gorgeous as well


Word # 4 Stunning

Since this word is not used often, it hasn't lost its kick. That's why you should only use it when you really mean it. Just like the rest of the words listed, you don't want it to lose its meaning.


The most important things are the hardest to say, because words diminish them. 

Stephen King


Everyone loves to be praised, so we should give out compliments as much as we can. Just make sure that they're always genuine. 

Love is something that really doesn’t need fancy words, but they are very nice to hear once in awhile.  

The Ancient Mariner would not have taken so well if it had been called The Old Sailor. 

Samuel Butler

These are great, Ma! I especially like, 'elegant.'
In fact, just saying that aloud makes me think of Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly.

'Sure know what you mean about over-used words. Every time we watch the Bachelor, I just know I'm going to hear an overdose of the phrase, "You look Amazing."

I liked that list of words; I think stunning is my favorite of that batch. I think I've been known to use it when describing someone :)

My mother always used gorgeous to describe an especially nice day. It doesn't seem to be overused and it's one of my favorite words, when something looks, well, gorgeous.

Love words that compliment. In my opinion they are not used enough in today's world. Love the quote by Stephen King, "The most important things are the hardest to say, because words diminish them."
