A difference in words is a very awful and important difference; a difference in words is a difference in things. Words are very awful and wonderful things, for they come from the most awful and wonderful of all beings, Jesus Christ, THE WORD. He puts words into men's minds. He made all things, and He made words to express those things. And woe to those who use the wrong words about anything.

- Village Sermons. 1848.

- Berger, John

- Gilbertson, Joan
To succeed in the world it is not enough to be stupid, you must also be well-mannered.
