"Words are one of our chief means of adjusting to all the situations of life. The better control we have of our words, the more successful our adjustment will be." - Bergan Evans
I marvel at the command some have at the way they can choose the words they speak. It is as if they know what words we search for and are mesmerized in the phrases used not to convey a truth but to paint the picture our hearts want to believe. Politicians and Lawyers have this ability to say something and everyone in the room hears a completely different view. If no one shares what they heard then it is not revealed or even if the words are powerful and it is shared then one set thinks the other set is crazy for even taking it in such a confused state. A true test is when all can agree to what they heard it is truth, if division comes then it is a deception. Some walk this world speaking truth and look not to be successful, others walk the world speaking deceptions to gain favor and success with all they can.
"For all sad words of tongue or pen, The saddest are these: It might have been." - John Greenleaf Whittier
