” I know nothing in the world that has as much power as a word. Sometimes I write one, and look at it , until it begins to shine.”

Emily Dickinson.

Words, written or spoken can change our lives, thoughts, and perspectives. They indeed have more power than anything else.

While speaking, the correct choice is more important because once said, we can never unsay it. Most wise people advise us to think and weigh our words before we utter them.

The written word however has a bit of flexibility. We can write it, think about it, ponder its appropriateness, and then we can replace it with another or better word. A blogger has only one tool and those are the words they use. Choose them with care. Both in writing your post and in comments, because sometimes they convey a message we didn’t intend.

Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind”

Rudyard Kipling

  1. This post reminds me of the instant messages on smart phones and how auto correct makes mistakes.
    While there is a program that claims you can unsend a message… once you hit send or post…the ether has it!
    There is a site called (something like) The Way Back Machine… any and everything that has ever been put on the net… supposedly can be found. Kind of like the old archives of newspapers. If it was printed and you dig deep enough… So yes be careful with words. 😀
