Project quote and my thoughts
“I began to realize that words are a powerful weapon…you can breathe life and death into someone with a mere word.” (Marc Laroc, The Spark)
Words are important. Actions speak louder, but words are still important. A great idea communicated clearly and eloquently is much more likely to be understood and implemented. Criticism can either tear someone down, or challenge them to improve, depending on the words used to deliver it. Simple words like, “Yes”, “No”, “I love you” can encompass an entire world of intentions, and change someone’s life course.
Like guns, words can be used as weapons for good or bad. They can support, defend and shield. Or, they can wound and frighten.
