    Harsh words can hurt like a "thousand tiny cuts." You can never take them back.

    While I'm a week late – this couldn't be more fitting! At our PTA meeting yesterday, it seemed the Principal got completely caught up in my use of the word "pressured." I must've hit a subliminal chord in him!

    Reminds me of words being mightier than the sword. Both are true and can have real real power to would or heal.

    So true… the biggest problem is we throw out the meanest words at times we shouldn't! I just try to continue to follow the advice a good friend told me… say things in your head three times before you say them aloud!

    So true, Cheryl. Would we interact here is we had been telling each other to fxxx off?

    Interesting you should post that today. I'm told that my words can sometimes be construed as combative. I shall have to make an attempt to be more passive.

      Yeah, sometimes my words end up saying something I did not intend them to. Big sigh…

    The pen is mightier than the sword. (had to be said.)

      And you are just the right person to say it. :)

    Love this quote so much! It's one I used to write on my classroom's whiteboard as a quote of the day.

    The words we use create our lives. Being vigilant to be cognizant of our language pays big dividends through life.

      I could not agree more.

    Words can move mountains, cause wars, save lives and motivate someone to do good deeds. Yes indeed, they are one of our most powerful possessions and one we should not take lightly
