This is one of the best quotes of my life so far. The late Stuart Scott said this as he was being honored at one of the Espy awards shows before Cancer took him from us. You can take the word Cancer out of this quote, replace it with the word Life, now you have a totally different meaning, which is why this quote is so good, it is very versatile in that way. Life is definitely of what you make of it, if you make it hard, it will be hard in return, if you walk this journey correctly and with respect always, now life will be easier, throughout that path you have chosen.
It is perfectly okay to say what you want, and say what you mean, but when you speak Ill of another, or even worse speak for another, now you are doing nothing but create a lot of unwanted drama around the rest of us. When you speak for another and especially without consulting with them, then how do you know they truly mean what you have said? This is not just what is wrong within this society, this is totally what is wrong within the walls of all the media publications out there as well. These Individuals within the media spend big money, to go to the best schools, so they can say they have a degree in Journalism, but what good is the degree, when you work for a publication that only wants you to keep to an agenda? Right now this agenda of the media is all about, speaking Ill of some, while they spread lies and untruths of others. If you do not agree with their twisted philosophies, then you become one of the ones for which they speak Ill of, this is totally what is wrong with this society, this is what we all need to fix, as we move forward throughout this journey of life.
Then there is this thing called Political Correction which you can not say anything of anybody without offending someone, I say you know what you can do with this Political Correction…..? This has totally made this society weak and made us all fear everything that we may say, even if what we say may be correct, or even better, maybe what we need to fix this society, to be better and stronger moving forward. Yes, you do need to hear the truth, even if that truth hurts you and brings great pain, but if you deal with the pain and hurt correctly, it will only make you that much stronger moving forward.
The spoken word is just that, they are words we speak out of our mouths, they are also our opinions of what may be going on around us, now some may not research properly before they speak their words, which then becomes an even bigger issue that will affect us all, then there are some, like the ones who create these agendas, that will force their workers to use the spoken word in the wrong way, especially if the agenda creator did not properly do his/her research? With all the bad research out there, no wonder why the spoken word has become so…. screwed up and off point.
Ever since Eve told Adam to eat that forbidden fruit, this is what started all the societies within this journey of life, to walk on eggshells, as the spoken words have become like a bullet out of a gun, simply because, and some may disagree, which is fine, but words do cause great pain and hurt, but the right words can heal and bring us all to peace. Jesus showed us all when he walked this journey here with us, that words that come from the heart with love, will help us heal and be at peace, while words that are fake, that only get spoken out of hate, will totally hurt as the pain becomes great, we shouldn’t have to watch what we say all the time, only because, when we speak correctly and from the heart, then these words not only can heal us, but they will help us all become better and stronger, as we walk our paths, through this journey of life.
” There are many quotes out there and many we may remember, but a great quote will forever stand the test of time”
” The spoken word can be the best thing we will ever say, but they can also bring great pain and hurt”
