At first, these lines may seem to be taken straight out of a romance novel and if you are of the same opinion, then you are not entirely mistaken. It is from a book which speaks about one man's love for the entire world, the Holy Bible. Quite paradoxically, the first time I came across these lines, it was in the book, "A Walk to Remember" by Nicholas Sparks and I was a soppy "lovey-dovey" teenager then. The minute I read these lines, I knew that these had to be my most favourite romantic lines and I memorized the lines and would quote them wherever I could.
A word can bring about a change, make somebody smile, save a life, unite people, spread love and joy; it can mould, forgive, comfort, appreciate, encourage, instill faith and can empower us to face the battles of life and be the lonely ranger even if the entire world chooses to walk out on us. Just as each word is a tiny drop in the vast ocean of words, so are we, a single grain in the granary of life. Each grain is bestowed with the ability to give rise to new life, a life in all its fullness; it is upto us to discern for ourselves what we want to do with this gift - to fill the earth and bring it to birth or to just let it die with us.
