If I could permanently ban a word from general usage,which one would it be? Why? Asks Plinky.
But why should I ban a word at all?
Nae cheers.. not at all.
Like Emily Dickinson said,”I know nothing in the world that has as much power as a world. Sometimes I write one and I look at it until begins to shine.” Ask Patrick Rothfuss,”words are pale shadows of forgotten names. As names have power, words have power. Words can light fires in the minds of men. Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts,”
We live and breathe words, words are the most potent drugs used by man. Like Aldous Huxley says”words can be like X-ray if you use them properly they’ll go through anything. You read and you’re pierced.”
Words can be twisted into any shape. Promises can be made to lull the heart and seduce the soul. In the final analysis words mean nothing. They are labels we give things in an effort to wrap puny little brains around their underlying natures. When ninety-nine percent of the time the totality of the reality is an entirely different beast. The wisest man is the silent one, no, the one who chooses the right moment to speak. Examine his actions, judge him by them.
Every word has its unique identity, if we need to look into a thesaurus for a word then rest assured the word is not right.
