I think the power of the words usually depends on who is speaking them.
It really runs the whole spectrum. On one hand, "The pen is mightier than the sword".
On the other hand, "Talk is cheap."
A single sentence, uttered from a wise person, is worth more than a long speech from a fool.
I had a very cool, very wise uncle that was a personal hero of mine. I remember statements he
made decades ago. His words had tremendous power for me.
Here are a few of my favorite "Word" quotes:
Words can light fires in the minds of men. Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts.
... Patrick Rothfuss
When will you learn that there isn't a word for everything?
If you could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint.
A careless word may kindle strife.
A hateful word can wreck a life.
A timely word may level stress.
A loving word can heal and bless.
