The Power of Words by Dr Maya Angelou

Your words have power.

You never know who is watching or whose life you are impacting

 

The Power of Words – Dr. Maya Angelou

“Words are things, I’m convinced.  You must be careful about the words you use, or the words you allow to be used in your house.

In the Old Testament, we are told in Genesis, that in the beginning was the word, and the word was God and the word was with God.  That’s in Genesis. 

Words are things, you must be careful. Careful about calling people out of their names, using racial pejorative or sexual pejorative and all that ignorance, don’t do that.  

Some day we will be able to measure the power of words.  I think they are things, I think they get on the walls, they get in your wallpaper, they get in your rugs, in your upholstery, in your clothes and finally into you.”
