"Telling people to do something is easy, but trying to have the courage to try it yourself and experiment with words isn't. You have to accpet that your words won't always do as they are told.  You won't always, if ever produce word changing thoughts.  The best that you can aspire to is to amuse, to entertain and to make people stop and think even if it is only for a few seconds."
