Some Words Are Just Words...

It's strange that words are so inadequate.
Yet, like the asthmatic struggling for breath,
so the lover must struggle for words.

T.S. Eliot

I have had a love affair with words for my entire life and yet...

Some words are just words and saying them may change things for a time but really, our actions speak louder than our words written or spoken, whispered or in song. Sometimes a person needs more than words.

In retrospect, words can inspire actions rather than be replaced by them. Sometimes words are the strength behind our actions and that's something that should never be underestimated.

I agree with you. I have never underestimated the power of words. Thanks for adding perspective.
