CHOOSE WELL YOUR WORDS

ABRAHAM LINCOLN THE 16th PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

The dictionary is full of words.  It is how words are used that makes the big difference.  Words can lift us into heaven or lower us into hell…  “Good words anoint a man, ill words kill a man,” wrote John Florio.

Words sung in a lullaby can put a babe to sleep; words of hatred and passion can arouse a mob to violence.

Words have both the explosive power of a nuclear bomb and the soothing effect of oil on troubled waters.  They can start a war or they can keep the peace.

Your knowledge of words is to use them creatively; to select and arrange them to inspire the mind, stir the heart, lift the spirit…

Words of encouragement fan the spark of genius into the flame of achievement.  Legend tells us that Lincoln’s dying mother called her small son to her bedside and whispered, “Be somebody, Abe!”

Words are magnets that draw back to us the thoughts they express.  “Beware, beware!” warned the Hindu mystic.  “What goes forth from you will come back to you.”

Words are the pegs on which we hang creative ideas.  We must put our dreams into eloquent words that others may be persuaded to help us build them into realities.  This proverb of Solomon says it well:  “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.”

Words of faith, hope and courage lift men upward.  Negative words drag men downward.  “Nerve us up with incessant affirmatives,” counseled Emerson; “don’t waste yourself in rejection, nor bark against the bad, but chant the beauty of the good.  When that is spoken which has a right to be spoken, the chatter and the criticism will stop.”

Words are symbols of man’s finest qualities.  Words such as valiant, radiant, triumphant, vibrant, heroic… These are words to live by!

Words are a dynamic force for changing men and nations.  Words of power burst in man’s mind with a great light, to illuminate his thoughts and show him the way.

Choose well your words!  They will go marching down the years in the lives you touch!

  12. Hey, Vine and Branch.
    This is an interesting post! There is no denying the power of words; however, there is a topic floating around the WordPress community, namely, grammar. I group some of these issues to the issues you talk about above. The belief is that, while good grammar should not be taken lightly, portraying ideas and concepts should be prioritized about nit-picky rules. What do you think?

    I wrote a short post dealing with the matter on my own blog (http://eyeoneducation.wordpress.com/2010/12/23/good-grammar-might-be-a-bad-thing/), which may be of some interest to you.

    Keep up the good work!
