Chapter 4, Page 16, Book 19


You have it easily in your power to increase the sum total of this worlds’ happiness now.  How!  By giving a few words of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely or discouraged.  Perhaps you will forget the kind words you say today, but the recipient may cherish them over a lifetime.

Dale Carnegie

April 16th- Words matter


Good words are worth much, and cost little.

George Herbert

Reflection on the power of words…

The power of words is stronger than many of us even realize.  Most of us let all the words fall from our mouths without thinking about them at all. Words dont cost a cent but its how you use them that may cost you.

Some words are important, some entertaining.  All carry a message, either for good or evil.  Words of encouragement can make a difference between life and death, success and failure.  

Its our choice as to what words we use, so why not use some kind ones today and make the world a bit better.

Kind words are a creative force, a power that concurs in the building up of all that is good and energy that showers blessings upon the world,

Lawrence G. Lovasik

YES, The right word at the right time might be the cornerstone of someone's life. I can remember a few. And they meant the world.

Words truly do matter! I think its a lesson we need to teach the young early and to keep reinforcing it through all the days of their lives and our lives.

How true. Knowing certain words can heal … or wound, we must guard our tongues.
I love what Jack said about the right word being a cornerstone of someone's life. What a visual!
