Monday Moments

Hope it was a good weekend. I'll just be getting back from a week in PA visiting Dad. I'm sure I'll have some senior moments to share later. However, this Monday Moment is courtesy of a trip to New York City many years ago. I love the Swatch store in the Times Square area and always wander in (and buy). Sure enough, this watch captured my eye and credit card.

WORDS 

Words Matter.   Henry Ward Beecher wrote, "All words are pegs to hang ideas on."

Rudyard Kipling said, "Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind."

And Alfred Lord Tennyson said, "For words, like Nature, half reveal
and half conceal the Soul within."

WORDS MATTER

I hope everyone heeds this Monday moment.  Carry on.........

  1. I well remember a visit to New York City some years back, whilst there went to "Ground Force" most humbling experience I've had.

  3. Hi Joanne - word selection can be tricky at times ... but English has such a wonderful range of descriptive words with fantastic derivations ... love words and their etymological roots ... I'm looking forward to hearing more about your trip to see your father. Your Swatch Word Watch looks fun .. cheers Hilary

  6. Yep, I confess to being addicted to words, too. The best drug ever. (No scary side effects!)

    Looking forward to hearing about your trip to PA.

  7. Someday I hope to be able to check out the Times Square for myself :) Words count, however - 'better to have a heart without words than words without a heart' ~ Mahatma Gandhi.
