This is a quote by filmmaker, Ken Burns, from an article on ⁣

The context of the quote is not the point I wish to make or describe in this post. ⁣

But what I would love to put a few words on, is the truth of: the power of words. As written, or by listening to them in a conversation, in a play, in music or so on. ⁣

Maya Angelou has also said something beautiful about the power of words and here it is (had to google it after I read this quote myself): ⁣

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

“You must be careful. Care about calling people out of their names, using racial pejoratives and sexual pejoratives and all that ignorance,” she said. “Don’t do that.” ⁣

Words, she felt, have to power to seep into everything around you. “I think they get on the walls, they get in your wallpaper, they get in your rugs and your upholstery and your clothes,” Dr. Angelou said. “And, finally, into you.”⁣

I’ll really recommend you to YouTube ‘The power of words - Maya Angelou.’ She describes it so beautifully in words. ⁣

So, I guess my point here is: writing, singing, performing a play or presenting a show (any kind) does make a difference. ⁣

So be careful about your words, but also: go inspire! Because words; can change minds. xx J⁣
