Words Quotations

Words: we use them everyday yet sometimes we can't find the right ones at the right time. They can be thoughtful, hurtful, emotional, and powerful. They are intelligent, dumb, and average. They are everything. They play a large part in communication and language in general. Without them, or even with fewer of them, communication would be difficult. We might be grunting and swinging from trees if we didn't have them. They are truly important to our society today.
