Every day we wake up we run in to a situation where if we have the right words at the right time it can mean all the difference in the world. How often has a misunderstanding all started because we chose the wrong words or the love of our life because the words we chose? Chose your carefully today as it may make someone else’s day.

Todd -- however they are delivered, words can be very powerful.  When given a choice, choose them wisely and carefully.

So true Todd - and how sad to inadvertently hurt another person with a careless word.

Todd,  Good message.  Words can be taken the wrong way.  Especially the written word.  You have to be extremely careful to make sure the true intent of your message is delivered.

Hi Todd -

Mark Twain was so cool and I really like this quote!  Indeed a single word can make or break a deal, a relationship or friendship.  We must think before we speak.  Thanks for the good post and reminder.

Best regards from the Q

Words are action... words are power... misunderstandings do usually start with a bad choice of words. It's not what we thought, but what we said. Act, don't re-act... Great Twain quote...
