The power of your words is something you should never underestimate. Your words – be they well-considered or hastily launched – have the power to create, destroy, uplift, cast down, inspire, dishearten, sanctify, or corrupt.
Your words, of course, do not automatically change the world, but the way in which they are received does. Words are catalytic; they are symbolic projectiles that can deliver a payload of emotion, meaning, and intent. What they do on impact, however, is ultimately up the the target.
