    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...

    Words Hurt

    They say that words have no effect, that they are just wind and noise: "full of sound and fury, signifying nothing". We are often told that actions speak louder than words do. It is even said that "sticks and stones may break your bones but words will never hurt you,". They are...

    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...

    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...

    A friend recently shared with me this letter

    from the author Victor Hugo (Les Miserables) to his lover Charlotte Drouet. The simple reading of his words made me shiver. I felt I had to translate is and share it with you. English translation: Night between the 17 and 18th February 1841 Can you remember my beloved...

      How can tender, gentle thoughts stir the soul by its’ sound So as to help the soul free itself from its’ earthly bounds…   How can the silence be so heavy smothering daunting That it crushes the spirit and leaves the heart wanting...

    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 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...

    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...

    They wrecked me. And none have cured that.

    Possibly due to meds. Or that similar jerks rule society. And the arrows keep landing in my ears.

    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...
