We give words meaning. Without man, they are nothing but an inarticulate collaboration of 
sounds and noises. We attach a meaning to those sounds and suddenly they become more. 
They impact people and inspire them to go whatever path they may choose. Those paths lead 
into directions unforeseen by the taker. That’s part of taking a chance; to rely on ones self and 
let yourself guide you to the right path. When do we fallow our hearts and when do we think? 
One should not think too much, it isn’t healthy. To think, we must take those notions from prior 
ideas, and those can only come from instinctual knowledge.  Every great idea that every great 
mind formulated came from the same place. While they gained knowledge from books, or 
people, or wherever it might have come from, its origin came from the drive and heart. You 
must be inspired to open your mind and think. And those thoughts are then formulated into 
words; little bits of sound that has no other meaning besides the fact that they are simply just 
that; sounds; sounds and squiggly lines. It’s up to us to determine the meaning of a word, and 
to use them to inspire more words to come forth from the hearts of the readers.
