Never fear big long words, for big long words mean little things


We have at times come across people who are very articulate and have a substantial vocabulary. We tend to think they are very intelligent and perhaps we need to go learn such words. This quote is a good reminder that we don’t have to find or use new and heavy vocabulary to impress and show our perspective. We can use little simple words and speak from our heart that can touch the soul and make an impact thats profound.

Sesquipedalian – did you know what this means?

Described in Sesquipedalian is used to describe someone or something that overuses big words, like a philosophy professor or a chemistry textbook. If someone gives a sesquipedalian speech, people often assume it was smart, even if they don’t really know what it was about because they can’t understand the words. Each of those long words is referred to as a sesquipedalian.

So coming back to the point, it’s always good to learn and expand our mind but do not get carried away by thinking that “Sesquipedalian” is smarter than “Vocabulary”!!

Learn & Practice meditation as a way to connect and speak from your heart. What is Mindfulness?

Never fear big long words, for big long words mean little things
All big things have little names, such as life, and love, or dawn, day, night, hope

Learn to use little words in a big way
It’s hard to do but it says what you mean  

When you don’t know big words use little words it often fools big people.
