It was the Buddha who (allegedly) said “words have the power both to destroy and heal”. Though that is undoubtedly true, there does appear to be a crucial emotion missed out. Disgust. Not the disgust that is conjured up by magnificent authorship, by fine strokes of the pen. No, the disgust that is conjured up by a word itself, due to either its usage having warped in modern society into a symbol of all that is wrong with the world today, or just because they sound a bit… nauseating.
Before I start the challenge, I would like to link to a piece of Sherlock fan fiction which I wrote today, which I would really appreciate people reading. Thank you!
I’ve been nominated for this challenge twice, and whilst I do not tend to do blog awards and the like, I think doing a challenge which sounds enjoyable is a rather different kettle of fish. So without further ado, I present the Quote a day challenge (condensed into one day due to time constraints). Thank you very much to Ritu from But I Smile Anyway… and Gaurav Chaplot for nominating me for this challenge.
