Weekday Essentials 5 – The Word Game
Quote of the day
‘Communication is for interaction, reading is for abstraction, speaking is for a reaction, writing is for action. Words are the common denominator to all of these essential forms of modern day transmission. The greater the number of words you know the more effective you are at conversation, communication, adaptation, concentration, valuation, tabulation, preparation, presentation, realisation, punctuation, observation, legislation, litigation, consolidation, coordination, evaluation, information, organisation and vocalisation in any given situation.’
‘Learn a new word each month and you shall open Pandora’s Box to Success. Learn a new word each week and you shall have command over the English language. Learn a new word each day and you shall have the golden key to unleash your potential. Learn a new word every hour and you shall become the most learned person in your community. Do this consistently and you shall become one of the most learned person in the world.’
