Thought of the moment:

A single picture can create thousands of worthless words, and thousands of worthless words can create a single picture.

This is usually the sort of lying sort of propaganda that fuels hatred in too many parts of the world.

Sometimes, however, a thousand words will evoke such wonder as to inspire a greater understanding, a truer picture of the world. Sometimes, a single picture will alter how we perceive the facts in our awareness.

That is literature, the sort that portrays truth. I think I know the difference between them from the emotions each is meant to produce within me. Am I wrong?
