I Know That Words Are Powerful

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 460 People

    Today saw the passing away of an amazing lady.

    As I searched for extracts if her work I have stumbled on this poem. This powerful evocation of a woman took me like a waltz and I feel compelled to share it here. Phenomenal Woman Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s...

    Think

    I know it is a common cliche but was taught at an early age to Think before you Speak as once the words are spoken, you can never take them back. I have learned this on numerous occasions when I was very passionate about a certain subject and wanted to get my point across...

    The saying "Sticks and stones may break my

    bones, but words will never hurt me" is completely a lie. Words are very powerful things that could very much change someone's life, either in a terribly negative way or a greatly positive way. People sometimes don't realize this, unfortunately, especially, from my observations...

    Once spoken, they cannot be taken back.

    I cannot forget the ugliest of things spoken to me and I cannot forget the most tender of things spoken to me. I cannot forget the words that made me feel like I was someone's everything and I cannot forget the words that made me feel like I would never mean anything to anyone...

    Words. Words. Words. They are a reflection of

    meaning. We read words everyday. Everywhere. Just one simple word. It does not matter how many letters, whether it is just has one letter or fifty letters. Read them with caution. One slip up. It can cost you something good in life. Don't miss out because you overlooked it...

    What you say can really hurt people :|

    Sometimes you won't see it and then when it's really obvious and they're showing it, it's too late to fix or they won't accept anything from you ever again because they're afraid to be hurt again. Words can be powerful in stories, love and in death.

    The long and hard battle was fought And lost.

    She retreats, wounded to the shower. All lights turn off. There's no one there. No one with her. She is alone, cowering over her wounds and the ones she's caused. No one can hear her scream, no one can hear her cry. Her silence is her only cry for help, and it is ignored...

    And God "said". And Bam!

    , it was, because He spoke "The word" Life. The living word. Coincidentally, they also describe the power inside of people, or their minds or in certain places or specific things. When it comes to matters of the heart, I am Validus.

    The Power Of Description

    I once had a job where I took my lunch in a quiet room and wrote my thoughts. I fell into a rhythm of describing the same street and scene that I saw every day. I live in Oregon, so many days were rainy, cool, and what some would call dreary. But, in this excorcise I learned...

    Do you ever feel like

    when you said something you really mean it but suddenly you feel that you lose it meanings? And every time you feel it is the right time to say it, after you said that it turns out to be a bad time for you?

    Who Wouldn't Want A Teacher Like Him...

    “So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys - to woo women - and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do. It also won’t do in your essays...
