Actions are louder, words depend on the shouter.

Twisted words come from tangled thoughts.

“In a word …” is never one word.

A play on words is a lot of work.

One word is worth a thousand vacation pictures.

Weigh words and diet, wax simple and quiet.

Keep your words close and your spouse’s words closer.

Words, words, the phonic fruit, the more you learn, the more you toot.

There’s a way with words, and then there are words that have their way.
