“I know words, I have the best words.”  Donald Trump.

>From an article by Lisa Belkin, Chief National Correspondent [for, I assume, Yahoo/News],October 10, 2016, titled "Not ‘just words’: Why Donald Trump’s lewd talk matters":

“For your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned” reads Matthew 12:36-38.

“Words are loaded pistols,” wrote Jean-Paul Sartre.

“Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind,” Rudyard Kipling said.

And, of course, Donald Trump: “I know words, I have the best words.”
