The Power of Words

Posted by jenny.wendorf@rocketmail.com on June 1, 2013 at 5:45 PM Comments comments (1)

I absolutely loved this blog article written by Nathan Bransford. He discusses the power of words, not because of the sounds themselves, but because of the ideas they contain. Like a magic spell, words have power.
