- I agree with this. Words are too important to be undermined or ill-used.
- Under the layer of the conscience, our brain works judging and weighing everything without warning us about it. Silently, our mind catches the tricks of the non-verbal or non-intentional messages broadcast by people around us. So that, words mean intentions, desires, and instructions.

And I answered: "I am ashamed."

Then was there again spoken unto me without voice: "Thou must yet become a child, and be without shame.

The pride of youth is still upon thee; late hast thou become young: but he who would become a child must surmount even his youth."—

And I considered a long while, and trembled. At last, however, did I say what I had said at first. "I will not."

Then did a laughing take place all around me. Alas, how that laughing lacerated my bowels and cut into my heart!

And there was spoken unto me for the last time: "O Zarathustra, thy fruits are ripe, but thou art not ripe for thy fruits!

Yeah. Nobody feels threatened at first, and then – it's already late...
