Chapter 5, Page 14, Book 18


Sticks and stones will break our bones, but words will break our hearts.

Robert Fulghum

Words have power


Be careful with words.

George Carlin

Our words matter and should be handled with care.  Words inspire, uplift and motivate.  Misused words can manipulate or bully.  It matters how we use them.  Our words can either build or destroy. 

We should never forget that a kind word can inspire and motivate.  It can provide strength to someone who can’t find it within themselves.

Words do matter and so do you.


Think twice before you speak,
because your words and influence
will plant the seed of
either success of failure
in the mind of another.

Napoleon Hill

Always wise words you write, Ma, about us being careful with the words that we speak. They have so much power in them; power to heal, but power also to destroy. Always good to seek the Good Lord's wisdom on what to say, especially in "touchy" situations.

Words do have power and you can't take them back.

At times a person must give someone a piece of their mind, most times they cannot afford it.
Yes words can really hurt!

Such a wise counsel! Unfortunately, I don't think any of us hasn't been on the receiving end of a slight; no matter how unintentional. Hopefully, that's made us kinder.
