Creativity Challenge 12 – Diversity

78e46e0eb0464d09ffe60271188247d3

Language is a unique human gift, central to our experience of being human.

The languages we speak shape the way we think about space, time, colours
and objects.

They shape the way we see the world, the way we think, and the way we live
our lives.

Let’s acknowledge and celebrate this diversity.

The right combinations of words and sentences
can make people laugh or cry, be inspired or be annoyed.

Let’s all explore the beauty of our language.

Khalil Gibran once said that people will never understand one another unless language is reduced to seven words. What would your seven words be? 

My seven words would be:
LOVE – Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none. (by William Shakespeare)
HAPPINESS – A happy family is but an earlier heaven. (by George Bernard Shaw)
CHALLENGE – The greatest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart. (by Dorothy Day)
DIVERSITY – Diversity: the art of thinking independently together. (by Malcolm Forbes)
COMPASSION – Compassion is the antitoxin of the soul: where there is compassion even the most poisonous impulses remain relatively harmless. (by Eric Hoffer)
FAMILY – Family is the most important thing in the world. (by Princess Diana)
OPPORTUNITY – Opportunity does not knock, it presents itself when you beat down the door. (by Kyle Chandler)
