How men first learned to invent words is unknown;in other words，the origin of language is amystery.All we really know is that men，unlike animals，somehow invented certain sounds to express thoughts and feelings，actions and things，so that they could communicate with each other;and that later they agreed upon certain signs，called letters，which could be combined to representthose sounds and which could be written down.Those sounds，whether spoken，or written in letters，we call words.
The power of words，then，lies in their associations—the things they bring up before ourminds.Words become filled with meaning for us by experience;and the longer We live，the morecertain words recall to us the glad and sad events of our past;and the more we read and learn，themore the number of words that mean something to us increases.
Great writers are those who not oily have great thoughts but also express these thoughts in wordswhich appeal powerfully to our minds and emotions.This charming and telling use of words is whatwe call literary(文字的)style.AboVe all，the real poet is a master of Words.He can convey hismeaning in words which sing like music，and which by their position and association can move mento tears.We should therefore learn to choose our words carefully and use them accuratel3r，or they willmake our speech silly and rude.

“When one of the doctors criticizes(批評)me，I get defensive：I feel like a child again，being scolded.and l want to explain that l’m not wrong.”says Viola，a nurse.This is a common reaction(反應)to criticism，but not a good one.There are better ways of dealing with criticism.
(1)Try to be objective(客觀).When Sol was criticized by his new employer for not havingmade a sale，Sol’s reaction Was to feel sorry for himself.“I had put everything I had into makingthat sale，”Sol says，“and I felt that I had failed as a person.I had to learn through experience not to react like that to each failure.”
(2)Take time to cool down.Rather than reacting immediately to criticism，take some time tothink over what was said.Your first question should be whether the criticism is fair from the otherperson’s position.The problem may be a simple misunderstanding of what you did or your reasons for doing it.
(3)Take positive(積極的)action.After you cool down，consider what you can do about thesituation.The best answer may be“nothing”.“I finally realized that my boss was having personalproblems and taking them out on me because l was there，”says Sheila.“His criticisms didn’t reallyhave anytlling to do with my work，so nothing I said or did was going to change them.”In Sheila’s case，the best way to deal with it was to leave her job.However，that’s an extreme reaction.Youmay simply explain your opinion without expecting an in—depth discussion.You may even decide.thatthe battle isn’t worth fighting this time.The key，in any case，is to have a reasonable plan.
