The Power of Words

As palavras são a proverbial espada de dois gumes na interação humana. Podem ser usadas para construir, proteger e criar ou para destruir, causar danos ou medo.

As palavras têm mais poder do que o que se pode imaginar. É por palavras que a grande luta no mundo, supostamente em tempos civilizados, deveria ser travada, e não com armas.
