Christopher Walken Quote

“I have this theory about words. There’s a thousand ways to say `Pass the salt.’ It could mean, you know, `Can I have some salt?’ or it could mean, `I love you.’  It could mean `I’m very annoyed with you’  really, the list could go on and on. Words are little bombs, and they have a lot of energy inside them.”

I’m a fan of Christopher Walken’s work in general, but I found this quote the other week and thought it was very apt, for writers especially.

    • I agree – it’s a great insight.

      And I like your word choice, there S.L – ‘unleash’ we really have choose the right amount of energy for the right purpose.

      It reminds me of people who go wild with swear-words at the drop of a hat. Word choice, so important for context.
