"Words are a pretext. It is the inner bond that draws one person to another, not words."
― Rumi

"Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with shades of deeper meaning."
― Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

"Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak knits up the o-er wrought heart and bids it break."
― William Shakespeare, Macbeth

"Words can be twisted into any shape. Promises can be made to lull the heart and seduce the soul. In the final analysis, words mean nothing. They are labels we give things in an effort to wrap our puny little brains around their underlying natures, when ninety-nine percent of the time the totality of the reality is an entirely different beast. The wisest man is the silent one. Examine his actions. Judge him by them."
― Karen Marie Moning

I love these quotes. Words are my friends and playmates. When one lives alone, as I do, the written stands out more, both to be read and to be recorded.

As an avid reader words are a big part of my life, but I have also to agree with Maya Angelou. So often, especially in the short form of e-mail and on forums, words come across wrong.
