“Our language has wisely sensed the two sides of being alone. It has created the word ‘loneliness’ to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word ‘solitude’ to express the glory of being alone” – Paul Tillich
You have been evolving since the day early man used sign to communicate to his mates the basics. Centuries later, it has now become a tool people use (abuse) to con other people; to keep them at bay about their real feelings. A friend of mine once aptly told, words are just – WORDS; they can be strung together making perfect grammatical sense but still be stoic.
Most people get what want, simply by manipulating the right words in sentences. Men and women, both use sweet deceiving words to charm people and then dispose them like a red solo cups. Sometimes, some people say they care but actually mean goodbye. Musicians use words to manipulate the feelings of the masses just to get a worldwide hit. Bloggers string words together to express themselves. Agreements and legal document use words to complicate something that just essentially means ‘I own you’. Advertisers and Marketing folks string a few words to make a powerful impact. Authors and poets whole life revolve around words.
What if the world had no language to bind us to words that could deceive? What if men and women could only communicate the basics? If words were omitted, What would the world be? Would there be broken hearts? Would there be chicanery? Do words pollute our very being? Why do people dissect sentences further and further; to understand the ulterior motives? Why can’t it be simple?
Think about a world without words… A simple world… And then again.. Its the very fact the words I have written here that sparks your imagination… Words are powerful.. Use them wisely…
