"Sticks and stones may break my bones
but words will never hurt me."
Um, someone got that all wrong. And shamelessly
kept the wrongness alive for generations.
Words can hurt, help and everything in between.
In commerce, they're often used to manipulate a purchase.
In anger, they're often used to attack or defend.
In love, they're often lost... and replaced with action.
That's the best and highest use of words,
when they graduate into vital verbs. Deeds
that actually mend bones.
