There are more than a few words written about words. For example:
A picture is worth a thousand words. Actions speak louder than words.
“You have it easily in your power to increase the sum total of this world’s happiness now. How? By giving a few words of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely or discouraged. Perhaps, you will forget tomorrow the kind words you said today, but the recipient may cherish them over a lifetime.” Dale Carnegie
And, then we come to these lines of poetry of Froth and Bubble which I heard over 22 years ago in this news clip of Princess Diana. And, I never forgot them. The truth is that I didn’t remember the occasion. I actually thought she was dressed in khakis in a tent in Africa. Maybe, she used the poetry more than once. I don’t know. But, watch the clip. They are words you can try and live by.
Diana attended a gala dinner to raise money for breast cancer research. 25.9.96
“Life is mostly froth and bubble, two things stand like stone
Kindness in another’s troubles, and courage in your own”
I like words. Stay tuned. More words and sayings to come. JL 1-29-18
