Having things sugar-coated has become the way of society. We only hear what we want to hear and only accept the news we already believe. Knowledge is powerful, but without the power that comes from feeding the mind with rich literature, our knowledge is quite limited. There is no way around it. A person can be ignorant of knowledge, or a person can be powerful in knowledge. I know what I want to be. You have the power to choose.
I see such beauty in words. There is a special place in my heart for typography and the meanings behind some of the sayings and quotes I have come across in my life. Some of the words I have come to appreciate are not life lessons that leave warm, fuzzy feelings always. They leave a ring of reality that can sometimes be a harsh reminder. Words carry meaning and are part of everyone’s life in some form or fashion. While words feed my soul, others do not have as strong of a connection.
We may not always like the words we read or hear. Many things in life revolve around words. Our mind thrives on learning and growing knowledge. And the power we choose to exude will become the personality trait people know us by. Not everything in life will come with a dazzling façade. Words are no exception. Take them as they come. Learn from the lessons. Be open to new ideas. Do not turn a deaf ear or blind eye to the reality of words.
