Response to the comment
Thank you for your comments and I really like the quote you shared.
I am currently writing a book called Conflict Mastery Quest(ions) based on my blog for the most part, and I am expanding on some topics. On the one re name calling I am actually referring to that childhood taunt "stick and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me." Of course they do hurt - and as this quote says so does silence.
Thanks again for commenting.

the silent treatment
All good questions. It reminds me of these lines by Phyllis McGinley:
A CHOICE OF WEAPONS
Sticks and stones are hard on bones.
Aimed with energy and art,
words can sting like anything .
But silence breaks the heart .
