Every word has a definition. A precise explanation, in language, of what it means. But a definition only captures the formal clarification of a word. It misses where human meaning gets created and lives: in emotions.
Certain words connect to powerful ideas, feelings, and experiences that carry meaning beyond and deeper than a definition. For example . . . freedom, family, and faith. The definition of a word doesn’t compare to the power of the personal meaning you assign to it.
