And speaking of fun, here are some quotes on the subject of words. Just for the fun of it.
"Words--so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them." --Nathaniel Hawthorne
"Words are but the vague shadows of the volumes we mean. Little audible links, they are, chaining together great inaudible feelings and purposes." --Theodore Dreiser
"Words set things in motion. I've seen them doing it. Words set up atmospheres, electrical fields, charges." --Toni Cade Bambara
"The words! I collected them in all shapes and sizes and hung them like bangles in my mind." --Hortense Calisher
"Words fascinate me. They always have. For me, browsing in a dictionary is like being turned loose in a bank." --Eddie Cantor
"Wrestling with words gave me my moments of greatest meaning." --Richard Wright
