Words are paintings of thoughts. A single word can instantly conjure up a place, a person, a mood, a situation. The right word can transport you, upset you, excite you, delight you. Love, hope, chocolate, magic. A phrase can describe an entire lifetime. Words are powerful, and when you find the perfect word, you know it, and it hits you right between the eyes!!! Word perfect!!!
