Thought this was cool: What is the best advice your father ever gave you?

leave a comment »


“Your thoughts are limited by your vocabulary.”, my father told me when I was a teenager.

That one line set me on a path of reading, to build my vocabulary, fall in love with dictionaries, enjoy words and word-play, to write well, to speak well. This expanded the horizons of my comprehension, and also gave me the ability to applaud the refined, subtle thoughts that only a master craftsman with words can bring to paper. There is a richness to the commentary of human experience that I would have missed had I not enjoyed reading and writing as much as I do.

This path has been central to how, for better or for worse, my personality has evolved in the last 20 years since that afternoon.
