Words Of Wisdom

While researching something, I came across this really neat site, which I enjoyed. It features words of wisdom of several women from many years back.

Just click on the picture of each of the women featured, to see what they have had to say.

I have a quote of my own, which I have posted before, but I thought I might as well add my two cents worth here, too.

A word is such a powerful thing,
Can lift a heart, or break it.

Be very careful what you say,
Once said, you can't retake it.

I think your cautionary ditty is going into my box of inspirational snippets :)

Jan said...'re going to be needing a bigger box, hon! :)

Hey, I can use all the wisdom I can find! If I need a bigger box to hold them all, I'll just hop down to Wallyworld! LOL!

Jan said...

rockync..can't we all? LOL

Granny J said...

Then there's the one my mom always said to me...

sticks and stones
can break my bones
but words can never hurt me.

A good saying for a world in which far too many people are discovering new words to find offensive...

Jan said...

granny j..I heard your mom's words when I was growing up, too.

It's true about today..perhaps when we learn to rise above being offended over a word, we can go on to what's really important.

I'm glad you came by! :)
