Words, lay ’em on me.

Words have the power to lift one to the greatest of heights,
or cast one down to the lowest – just by the presentation of them.
Do you realize the potential your words carry?
As a writer … what will your words accomplish today?

Pen Mightier than Sword


“Words—so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.” – Nathaniel Hawthorne


“All books are either dreams or swords. You cut, or you can drug with words.” – Amy Lowell


 “Many people hear voices when no one is there. Some of them are called mad and are shut up in rooms where they stare at the walls all day. Others are called writers and they do pretty much the same thing.”

– Margaret Chittenden


“No one means all he says, and yet very few say all they mean, for words are slippery, and thought is viscous.”

– Henry Brooks Adam


“Grant me some wild experiences, Heavens … words, words or I shall burst.” – George Farquhur

  1. Words – mixed and matched, formulated … can be magic — a form of alchemy for the writer – and the reader.
    Beautiful post, and perfect message dearest beloved friend! x Robyn

  2. Words…. more powerful than the sword aren’t they? I have a great respect for the power they have as I know you do too 😉

  3. Now I understand “quote”… 😉 It’s a lot of time to learn a English word after high school 1990… I failed in English but maked my russian without problem… Maybe it’s the reason that I love russian and classic litterature…

    But now when I’ll publish a book, in French, I can say that words could create a world, real places but a fiction, Östersund is the city, in Northern Sweden, or in Jämtland…

    “If you don’t try to tell a story with your own words, even if it’s an imagination, you’ll never have a success…” Me right now…

  4. I was talking about the way words can mean different things the way they are said, and – I don’t remember who I was talking to – said “It also depends on the words it is in bed with”
