One of the hardest things in life is having words
in your heart that you can't utter.
James Earl Jone
Be impeccable with your word: Speak with integrity.
Say only what you mean.
Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to
gossip about others.
Use the power of your word in the direction of truth
Miguel Angel Ruiz
A word of encouragement during a failure is
worth more than an hour of praise after success.
Kind words can be short and easy to speak,
but their echoes are truly endless.
The language we use to communicate with one another
is like a knife. In the hands of a careful and skilled
surgeon, a knife can work to do great good.
But in the hands of a careless or ignorant person,
a knife can cause great harm.
Exactly as it is with our words.”
Always be generous with your encouraging words,
you may find they will inspire others to be
the best they can be.
Don't use words too big for the subject.
Don't say "infinitely" when you mean "very";
otherwise you'll have no word left when you want
to talk about something really infinite.
C. S. Lewis
