I love words, although I wish my vocabulary was bigger. I love them because they give us so many things- a way to communicate, a chance to imagine and learn. Without words- we would have nothing to read- imagine life without words that are precious to us- words like love, beauty, friendship.
Seeing this today reminded me of that:
as well as these beautiful words:
Only in books could you find pity, comfort, happiness – and love. Books loved anyone who opened them, they gave you security and friendship and didn’t ask anything in return; they never went away, never, not even when you treated them badly.”
What words are precious to you?
