Spoken words are words that have been said and have important meanings. Spoken words are also things like keeping your word if you make a promise. Those words, promises, pledges and quotes all have important meanings. Some of them can make a decision for you, some might change the way you think, and some will make you change.
Let’s talk about these words; Let’s start with promises. Promises are things you keep. You keep your word. That is what it means to keep a promise. If you don’t; people will stop trusting you. Here is an example: You promise your friend to hang out, but you know you can’t that day. The next day your friend is mad and says that you lied, and they can’t trust you anymore. Try to avoid situations like that. When you can’t keep your spoken words, don’t say them.
The second one is pledges. A pledge is almost like a promise, but when you pledge something you use specific words to say it. For example: you want to become a permanent resident of Canada. You have to go down to a hall where someone makes you pledge your loyalty to the Queen and the Country. You also make a pledge when you join the army. You cannot take a pledge back. That is what it means to make a pledge.
The third and final one is quotes. Quotes are words people capture that someone said. They can mean a lot. For example, Albert Einstein once said, “Genius is 1% talent and 99% percent hard work”. They are words someone well known said and people remember it. People like Nelson Mandela, John Wood have notable quotes. Here are a few below:
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart”. -Helen Keller
“Good, better, best. Never let it rest. ‘Til your good is better and your better is best” – St. Jerome
“The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power” – Unknown
“It always seems impossible until it’s done.” – Nelson Mandela
“Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.” – Albert Einstein
This is what spoken words mean to me. Pledges, promises and quotes. These are important spoken words. They mean and say a lot about a person.
Thank you for reading and until next time.
