Even at rest, the power of words

When you’ve said what you’ve come to say (volumes of poignant memoir, poetry, and writing) and done what you’ve come to do, lift your tongue, your pen, rise… You rest.

    No truer words (outside of God’s words) than these. We can talk, and talk, and talk. We can do, do a little more, then do a lot more. But it is those words that are spoken with love and acts of kindness done with the other person in mind and no desire for payment, that will linger in people’s thoughts long after our bodies are turned to dust.
