It’s funny how powerful words can be. To people with good hearts, words can take them up so high and bring them down lower than they ever thought they could get. Words, simple words can be such a strong deadly weapon to a man’s heart. They can also be a blessing.
Using words, we can turn the wheel of time, we can take people back to the times when knights married beautiful princesses and lived happily ever after.

Only with words can a sinner seek forgiveness for mistakes he recklessly made. Only with words can a mother warn her daughter of an upcoming storm.
