Published by Touchstone Although we live in an ocean of words, we rarely acknowledge their power to uplift or put down, to inspire or discourage, to help or hurt. But in this jewel of a book, Hal Urban -- parent, award-winning teacher, and author of the classic Life's Greatest Lessons -- shows us simple and immediate ways that we can use language to change lives -- both our own and those around us.
Much has changed since then.
There are about a billion more people, the literacy rate has risen dramatically, countless new methods of communication are available to us, and we''ve added thousands of new words to our vocabulary. So the ocean of words we live in today dwarfs the one we lived in during the s.
But some things never change. We seem just as unaware of their impact today as we were fifty years ago. Maybe more unaware. I think this is so because we so often take things for granted. Words are tools that we''ve always had access to and have used every day since we started talking. Because they''ve always been there and because we use them so frequently, we get into verbal ruts. We often talk without thinking first and without being aware of the impact of our words.
Yet they can have a powerful impact -- both on others and on ourselves. Kahlil Gibran, the much-loved poet from Lebanon, wrote more than thirty years ago that " I hope to offer several practical reasons here for honoring it and for teaching and helping others to do the same. We need it more than ever. What we hear all around us every day literally speaks volumes about our culture, our ethos, and our consideration for one another. I''m not alone in my belief that much of the language we''ve been hearing for the past thirty years has tarnished that civilization.
In the late s, people were urged to "let it all hang out," and they''ve been doing just that, particularly with words, ever since. Much of the language we hear today has a harshness to it.

To be more specific, it''s often crude, angry, and mean-spirited. We hear it just about everywhere we go and it comes from people of most age groups. Keep in mind that I said our civilization has been tarnished, not destroyed.

What it needs is some tender loving care and a little polish. And I''m just optimistic enough to believe that we can apply that polish with a better choice of words.
