Words…at first glance, there’s nothing really special about them, isn’t it? I’m just wondering if you’ve ever thought that even a simple word can be as meaningful or precious as your most valuable things.Why when people utter “word” with a careless look on their faces, an empty sound comes from their mouths?
WORDS. You need them more than you imagine. For instance, people are judged by their behaviour, by their body movement and, most important, by what they say and how they say it. Also, many people who read all kind of books are not just longing for having an extensive knowledge or are not just curious to find out new, interesting things, but they are also willing to find their words easier when they are holding discussions with other people, to be more creative and to be stimulated to think and to use their imagination. You need words to impress, to be liked, to be accepted, to express your deepest thoughts…your brain, your life, your head, your whole, your inner world is full of words! You just have to find the right ones!
Let’s take the words “Peace” or “Freedom”…what about “Family” or “Culture”…those four bring in our minds more than 1000 words. Have you ever been in a situation when saying or writing just the right word could have changed the whole course of your life? Maybe it has been in the middle of an important exam or maybe when you have desperately wished for having a memorable speech at public speaking. It’s not about the long, pompous phrases, it’s all about the right words at the right time and at the right circumstances, it’s about every word taken separately from others.
Let’s take a renowned movie. Besides the famous actors starring in it, the great director or the wonderful scenes, something that contributes to the movie’s success and that really makes a stunning plot are the movie’s famous quotes. The use of right words in the character’s lines was crucial for making them memorable. Every single word must have been chosen with huge care. For instance, if you’ve seen “The Reader” or “The boy in the stripped pyjamas”, which are both emotional, great movies, you just know that these 2 movies can also be summarized in just a few, meanful words:
“ The Reader “ : “…Read to me, kid” or just “ The ”, which is the first word learnt by Anne ( Kate Winslet ) in English.
“The Boy in the stripped pyjamas”: “…They smell worse when they burn, don’t they? ”.
The most important thing about words is how you arrange them.We all say them, we all think about them but by using them in the right way we can create remarkable things!
