    “Oh, aye, Sassenach,” he answered a bit ruefully. “I am your master … and you’re mine. Seems I canna possess your soul without losing my own.

    Healing comes from the healed; not from the physician. That much, Raymond had taught me.

  • Twilidiot shared from How to Win the World Championship of Public Speaking: Secrets of the International Speech Contest by Jeremey Donovan
    The problem with the word-of-the-day concept is that it perpetuates the myth that great speakers need to use their extensive vocabularies. A speaker’s job is to connect emotionally with the listeners in his or her audience and hopefully inspire them to look at the world differently. A speaker’s job is never to impress an audience with vocabulary (or anything else for that matter). If a speaker taxes the audience’s cognitive processing ability, then he or she will fail to connect.
    Note: I don't know if there's hope for me. It's just the way I talk! It taxes me cognitively to NOT use ten dollar words. This is compounded by surrounding myself with individuals who not only understand me but also have the mindset of having to use a word that expresses EXACTLY what is meant. But I have no choice in those associations as they are my entire family.
