Dickinson on the Word


A WORD is dead
When it is said,
  Some say.
I say it just
Begins to live
That day.


Once you utter — or even think — an idea, it begins a life-long journey and has such as viral influence that it can circumnavigate the world in the blink of an eye. And you can never stuff it back in the bottle.  No entity is an isolate. Everything affects everything else. Gypsum and humans — we all  have a powerful influence on our environment.  By taking thought, you change the world. Gee, even by being here!

What do you think about that idea?
