Many of you probably remember this bit by George Carlin. I'm going to quote him, except change the words to fit my diary entry:
I love words. I thank you for reading my words.
I want to tell you something about words that I think is important.
Words are all we have, really.
We have thoughts but thoughts are fluid.
Then we assign a word to a thought and we're stuck with that word for
that thought, so be careful with words.
I like to think that the same words that hurt can heal, it is a matter of how you pick them.
There are some people that are not into all the words.
There are some that would have you not use certain words.
There are 400,000 words in the English language and there are 6
of them you can't say on Catster.
What a ratio that is. 399,994 to 6.
They must really be bad.
They'd have to be outrageous to be seperated from a group that large. All of you over here,you 6, Bad Words.
That's what they told us they were, remember?
"That's a bad word!" No bad words, bad thoughts, bad intentions,
You know the 6 don't you, that you can't say on Catster?
Fire, Verify, Help, Support, Money and Order.
Those are the heavy six. Those are the ones that'll infect your soul,
curve your spine, and keep the country from winning the war.
"Fire, Verify, Help, Support, Money and Order"
Wow! ...and Help doesn't even belong on the list.
That is such a friendly sounding word.
