Word Power

There’s Power In Words
The words we use can change things. Just watch this short video to see the power in words.

Emphasis in the Spoken Word can change the complete meaning of a sentence. Consider the sentence below:

I never said he stole money.

That one sentence can have six different meaning depending on where you put the emphasis. Try it. Amazing, isn’t it.

Changing the punctuation can also change the meaning. Consider the following sentence, with two different punctuations.

  • A woman without her man is nothing.
  • A woman: without her, man is nothing.

Yes, words are powerful. Use them to be kind in all you say and write.


Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Yes indeed, words are powerful.
Be careful how you use them!

Quote of the Day
While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, the other is busy making mistakes and becoming superior.
~Henry C. Link

Joke of the Day

A farm boy accidentally overturned his wagonload of corn. The farmer who lived nearby heard the noise and yelled over to the boy, "Hey Willis forget your troubles. Come in and visit with us. I'll help you get the wagon up later."

"That's mighty nice of you," Willis answered, "but I don't think Pa would like me to."

"Aw come on boy," the farmer insisted.

"Well okay," the boy finally agreed, and added, "but Pa won't like it."

After a hearty dinner, Willis thanked his host. "I feel a lot better now, but I know Pa is going to be real upset."

"Don't be foolish!" the neighbor said with a smile. "By the way, where is he?"

"Under the wagon."
