Sometimes a dream needs a little help. Even in our social and business relations, race is not to swift, but to verbal - spellbinding orator - silver-tongued seducer.
As you are reading these words, you are taking part in one of wonders of natural world. For you and I belong to a species with a remarkable ability. That ability is language -- Man's most important cultural invention. With nothing but words, we can reliably cause new ideas to arise in each other's minds. Hypnosis has proven that mere words can deeply influence behavior and perception.
Language is a bit like artist whose palette has only two or three splotches of color from which to choose. So it is with a vocabulary that has limited words for painting stories of one's past or future. They are colorless and uninteresting. They lack excitement or persuasion.
Take, for example, less fortunate hapless worker. He probably has lofty dreams. But those dreams are trapped inside his head because No dream or ambition can be told without being couched in words. Limited words mean limited expression. Limited language skills mean limited opportunity. These limitations block efforts to raise him above worker class. His struggle to upgrade his circumstances collapses at point his language skills fail to support his aspirations.
