Easy Does It?

My cousin Ruth used to say “Don’t talk to me about beautiful words. Because beautiful words can describe ugly things.”

My cousin Ellen used to say “Beautiful words can make me have ugly thoughts . Ugly words can make me have beautiful thoughts. “

My cousin Jessica used to say “I’m not interested in words or thoughts, because they are both just rocks that impede the flow of human life.”

My Aunt Felicia said “I prefer the answer of your cousin Jessica, because it includes the other two.”
