Seeds are so scary. Like, something the size of a penny turns into something the size of a house? A cornstalk as tall as me grows from one kernel? Tomatoes come back on their own from tomatoes that died in the dirt last year. A tiny seed becomes a great tree.
Words are so scary. Like, one word can shape the way people think about themselves forever. Even an unspoken word can stick in the mind like a hair in your teeth. Be careful with your words because you can never take them back.
