CHAPTER 10Speaking Out: Heart Song Catalogue of Catchphrases

“The written word can be erased—not so with the spoken word.”

—Author unknown

Does it mean that you are crazy if you walk around saying these recommended phrases out loud? Maybe, but what if you are too sane now? What is all the big deal about being sane? It is overrated. I would rather be excited, alive, fighting the good fight than sane. I know sane people who wouldn’t dare any of these techniques, but, please, are they not boring?
