Apart from the meaning a word has, even syllables of sound can bring a good result or a disastrous result. Those who know about this can recall several instances in history where, through the mistake of a poet who did not use the proper words in the praise of a king, the kingdom was destroyed. And yet, how little one thinks about it if one says: "Well, I have said it, but I did not mean it." People think that by saying something they have done nothing, as long as they did not mean it. But even saying something without meaning to, has a great effect upon life.
