Nothing douses anger like gentle words. And nothing stirs it up like thoughtless vituperations.
Countless marriages, friendships and families have been won and lost because of words. And it isn’t that words by themselves are powerful, they are powerless but for the thoughts we pack into them.
Harsh or kind thoughts only wield potency when we speak them forth in words.
A point to always note when you speak, is that: It’s not ‘what is said’ but ‘how it is said’. And that thoughts, when spoken, create feelings.
Maya Angelou said it right that ‘…people won’t remember what you said or did, they will remember how you made them feel.’
So make up your mind today to be a person of thoughtful words. Put the best thoughts in your words.
And remember that nothing better defines a man or woman than their words.
