the whole thought would change if you put it in the wrong place.

By each, let these be heard... Let me state a fact, that many people often neglect to pay attention to.

The word "but" is just as painful and as sweet as honey and clover...

In friendship, it reads:

The strength of the relationship is TESTED, when a companion says:

" I trust you, BUT..."

But the tested relationship is STRENGTHEN, when a companion says:

"...BUT, I trust you."

In life, it reads:

When hope is failing, never say:

" I won't give up, BUT..."

Instead, stand firm and say:

"...BUT, I won't give up".

In a relationship, it reads:

A man would feel unappreciated when a woman says:

" I will stay, BUT..."

But a man feels very much appreciated when a woman says:

"...BUT, I will stay."

In love, it reads:

The sweetest word a man could say to a woman is...

"...BUT, I love you."

And the most hurtful word a man could say to a woman is...

" I love you, BUT..."

In GOD,

Faith is shallow and blurred, once a man says:

" I have faith in you, BUT..."

And a man's faith is firm and strong once he says:

"...BUT, I have faith in you."

This three-letter word may mean nothing at all when alone,

but would mean a lot and would mean differently

when used in expressing something out.

By each let these be heard, BUT is never a simple word,

use it wisely, for BUT makes a wise man a fool,

an  foolish man, wise,when one uses it with their heart.
