LordMyChef “TGIF” Quote, 19 October 2018:
“We live in a world where words are cheap. Words engulf us. In advertisements, on billboards, and traffic signs, in pamphlets, booklets and books, on blackboards, overhead projectors, flip-charts, screens, and newsrunners. Words move, flicker, turn around, grow bigger, brighter, and fatter. They are presented to us in all sizes and colors – but finally we say, ‘Well, they are just words.’ Increased in number, words have decreased in value.”
Henri Nouwen, “With Burning Hearts”, page 52.
