A Thousand Words
Blog Posted:2/1/2019 4:03:00 PM
A statement attibuted to Napolean says "Un bon croquis vaut mieux qu'un long discours" (A good sketch is better than a long speech), or as we are more accustomed to hearing it "A picture is worth a thousand words". I pray to argue the issue because like most conundrums we need "what ifs" we need "relativity". Whose picture and whose words are we comparing and what is the complexity, or lack of, within the subject. I think the premise, which has existed for generations undervalues words. I might say that a picture is worth a thousand words but a poem is worth ten thousand thoughts...therefore worth ten times the picture. I will leave it to you poets to elaborate on.
