Chapter 2, Page 16, Book 20


One word frees us of all the weight and pain in life.  That word is love.

Sophocles 

February 16th-  make your words matter


The heart has its reasons which reason knows not.

Blaise Pascal


We fail to say the right words, because we choose to say the wrong word, because we fail to think about the right words.

There is an old saying that says actions speak louder than words.  There is nothing that will speak more deeply than simple acts of service.  Some people will say they love you but never do anything to help each other.  Helping each other is an expression of love.  Giving someone you’re precious time and attentention is one of the best ways we can show love.

The three most powerful words in any language are I love you.  When we truly love someone we need to be loving in words and actions every day.  It’s not always what you say, but how we say it.


Well done is better than well said.

Benjamin Franklin

"The three most powerful words in any language are I love you." Funny when I read that my mind went back to my French Class and I remember I wanted to know how to say I love YOU! It is Je t'aime, I forgot the more formal, but je t'aime was the most intimate/serious.
We love reading MA! ;-)

That's so true about actions speaking louder than words. I think in part, that's one reason I loathe texting. You can't see someone's expression or the inflections in their voice. Only recently I learned that '143' is slang for love -- but I'd still prefer to hear, "I love you."

A kind deed is the best way to say I care. Hope your week is filled with love.

I agree with you - what you say is a choice, and we do speak to fast.
We need to slow down and think what we should say or even if we should say anything.

It is always good to think twice before someone says something. I think that can potentially save a lot of people from saying things rashly that they might regret down the line.
