Splash du Jour: Wednesday

People in general attach too much importance to words. They are under the illusion that talking effects great results. As a matter of fact, words are, as a rule, the shallowest portion of the argument. They but dimly represent the great surging feelings and desires which lie behind. When the distraction of the tongue is removed, the heart listens.
-- Theodore Dreiser, Sister Carrie --

Have a great Wednesday!

And yet we have learned to depend on words so completely. What would we now be without them?

Agreed. Without words, well, you would not be reading this. They are so important. And yet so often, so woefully inadequate.
