Words have power.

They can inspire, discourage, open new views or close them off. Words can make you feel pleasure and they can make you feel pain. Words can bring people closer together or drive a wedge between them. Some words can make you feel good, while others can you make you feel bad.

Sometimes they can do all of that at once.

There are people who can take words at face value, and then there are people like me who have to analyze everything and still miss the point until it is far too late.

Listen, analyze, dissect, and decide. Or don’t decide, let the moment go and deal with the aftermath later. He who hesitates is lost, but good things come to those who wait.
