âÂÂWords can be like X-rays if you use them properly -- theyâÂÂll go through anything. You read and youâÂÂre pierced.âÂÂ
â Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

âÂÂOf all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these, 'It might have been.âÂÂ
â John Greenleaf Whittier, Maud Muller - Pamphlet

âÂÂWords are pale shadows of forgotten names. As names have power, words have power. Words can light fires in the minds of men. Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts.âÂÂ
â Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

âÂÂHe was the crazy one who had painted himself black and defeated the world.

She was the book thief without the words.

Trust me, though, the words were on their way, and when they arrived, Liesel would hold them in her hands like the clouds, and she would wring them out like rain.âÂÂ
â Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

âÂÂThere's nothing wrong with reading a book you love over and over. When you do, the words get inside you, become a part of you, in a way that words in a book you've read only once can't.âÂÂ
â Gail Carson Levine, Writing Magic: Creating Stories that Fly

Songwriters: GIBB, BARRY / GIBB, MAURICE ERNEST / GIBB, ROBIN HUGH
Smile an everlasting smile, a smile can bring you
Near to me.
Don't ever let me find you gone, cause that would
Bring a tear to me.
This world has lost it's glory, lets start a brand
New story now, my love.
Right now, there'll be no other time and I can show
You how, my love.

Talk in everlasting words, and dedicate them all to
Me.
And I will give you all my life, I'm here if you
Should call to me.
You think that I don't even mean,
A single word I say.
It's only words, and words are all I have, to take
Your heart away

Awesome Don! Thank you for making my day! I couldn't help but "sing" the song as I red the words. One of my favorites from the Bee Gees!

Just returning from a impromptu mini-vaccation. Love your word quotes.
Another quote in this vein which I read this week:
Words - so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in the dictionary, how potent for good or evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
