Book Description: A Few Words that Changed the World brings together short texts - many less than one page long - that profoundly changed the world in which we live. In its initial form, the book's focus is on the growth and development of European empires, and the ways in which peoples responded to that expansion. Over time, we hope that this resource will grow to include other sources, such as songs, poems, and perhaps pieces of art.
A word is dead
When it is said,
I say it just
Begins to live
