Aldous Huxley

Hello Jenny, you are sweet to care about your readers by advising them to add an email address to their blog. I think that is one thing that blogger does not do a good job in addressing.

On to your post...love the quote! In my next life, I'll know many more words and read many more books. :)

Karen S. said...

Just checked it out, his book A Brave New World, banned for sexual and too adult theme.....also, still trying to access your list for Alphabe-Thursday.....not sure why I can't get it...but I know, blogger does this every once in a while when you want something they delay the process...bugs in their heads!!!!

So true. The power to hurt and the most incredible power to heal.

And others' words can pierce you, too, both kind and unkind. Although I think kind words "touch" you and hurtful ones pierce. xo,

And they can cut deeply too!

Cheryl D. said...

Shoot, I thought you cheated too when I saw your title. I thought Quotation doesn't begin with an X--you're worse than me! Then I read the quote.

Never mind!

A+ on finding a great quote for a very difficult letter!

upinthecosmos said...

Great one & so true! Words definitely have power!

Keri said...

Pierced and hooked! When something is written so magically, it sticks in my mind and pulls me back to it over and over.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

What an Xcellent quote! X is a tricky letter, no doubt.

Pondside said...

Too true - once said or written, the word lives.

Ms. A said...

Words can definitely be misinterpreted, too. Especially typed words. Just depends on the readers interpretation.

Ain't that the truth!!!!!

Another great quote Jenny!
I'm having problems with many blogger comment windows that aren't allowing me to leave a comment. So frustrating. Your window and others like it allow my comments.
