Words are food.  They aren’t “like” food; they are real food for who you really are.  Words shape your experience with every event in your life.  Today’s post is a collection from authors, teachers guides and leaders on words.  It’s a 3-minute read with a lifetime of benefit.  Enjoy!

He ate and drank the precious Words,

his Spirit grew robust,

He knew no more that he was poor,

nor that his frame was Dust.

–Emily Dickinson

Words Have Power

The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. –King Solomon

Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble. –Yehuda Berg

Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another. –Napoleon Hill

Man acts as though he were the shaper and master of language, while in fact language remains the master of man. –Martin Heidegger

Human beings created, from nothing the domain of human rights. They called it up. They languaged it. They communicated it. Communication has that power. It has the power not only to represent and not only to evoke, but literally to bring something into being. –Werner Erhard

The words I have spoken to you are spirit and life. –Jesus

Words Create

Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace. –Buddha

We can use our words either to describe what already is or to declare what is to be…Declaration has us creating what we don’t yet have, something new. It is not limited by the current situation, and it opens up possibilities that didn’t previously exist. –Becky Henderson

Language is the house of Being. In its home man dwells. Those who think and those who create with words are the guardians of this home. –Martin Heidegger

How often misused words generate misleading thoughts. –Herbert Spencer

Honoring your word is also the route to creating whole and complete social and working relationships. In addition, it provides an actionable pathway to earning the trust of others. –Werner Erhard

Just For Fun

The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help. –Ronald Reagan

Some guy hit my fender, and I told him, ‘Be fruitful and multiply,’ but not in those words. –Woody Allen

There is nothing so annoying as to have two people go right on talking when you’re interrupting. –Mark Twain

Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn’t have said. –Unknown

Being intentional with your words leaves you empowered in every situation to create an experience that serves you and serves others.  Remember, your experience is not found in the situation.  Your experience is in your languaging of the situation.  Speak words that will create the world you want to live in.

Be Great!
