Words can just easily move you
as they can enslave you;
but the thinking mind
always has a choice.
They do say that words have power; in fact in Japan there are legends of sorcerers who could use the power of words to affect people and the world around them. They were called kotodama tsukai, meaning language user, and they’ve been very memorable characters in manga and anime.
Some things just rub me the wrong way and manga and anime are those things.
why? i find them entertaining and great places that i can draw from for story ideas. my succubus story is an example: i got the idea from the manga “rosario + vampire”.
To each his own.
strange; that’s usually my line, and i usually say it to those with different political thoughts than i do.
Well, it’s not like you came up with it 😉
i never said i did, i just said i usually say that to people with different politics than my own. if i did invent a phrase, i’ve yet to realize that i did invent it.
I know I was just being a goof.
oh, you got me. i thought you were being serious. comments can only convey so much emotion.
The 😉 helps
i’m still trying to figure out how to get those things in my comments. is there a place i have to download them from or something?

Yay, it worked
Yes, it worked. Thank you. 🙂
Hello my friend. Is it really up to us whether words affect us?
Language can be seen to “speak us” as much as the other way round. This is a post-structuralist argument. See here for more details http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Language_speaks
Well, it isn’t written in stone. 😉
The sword of words (anagram not intended.) My latest is about this very phenomenon. Phenomenon i call it, though it is certainly not extraordinary. But sometimes the simplest of truths are overlooked in our search for profundity. Your brevity always recaptures the spirit of truth in simple observations, and i enjoy reading it.
