“Sticks and Stones May Break My Bones, But Words Will Never Hurt Me.” That is about the most inaccurate saying of all history. Words are very powerful.
Mahatma Gandhi said:
“Your believes become your thoughts.
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.”
