Only the word is there to be taken and, sometimes, misinterpreted. And if there's one thing we humans are good at, it's misunderstanding. There's a deep insecurity in each of us that​​ makes us so sensitive to attack that we see danger where it doesn't exist. Then, in response to the mirage, we defend ourselves, attack without reason, saddle someone with motives he'd never thought of, and hurt him unjustly.
