Dignity of Words 말의 품격 

 

말과 사람과 품격에 대한 생각들

 

Twenty-four keywords such as listening, sympathy, reaction, backtalk, noise, and more are used to talk about the dignity of words and people. A knowledge of humanities that spans from the classics to modern times and the author’s unique emotions are used to relay something to read and something to think about. It is a book that everyone should read.
We are currently living in a world where the strength of our words rule over the world. People ruin themselves overnight because they could not control the sharpness of their words. The author states that even words have a homing instinct.
“I believe human words have a homing instinct. Like the trout that swims upriver, it has the tendency to go back to where it came from. Once words have left someone’s mouth, it does not dissipate. It goes around and around and comes back to the person’s ears and body.”
The wound caused by the weapon that is words does not heal well because it is too deep. Some words seep into that wound, dig up the emotions of the flesh, and some even lay eggs and multiply. That is another reason that injuries caused by words do not easily disappear.

『말의 품격』은 《언어의 온도》로 많은 독자의 공감을 얻은 이기주 작가의 에세이집이다. 경청, 공감, 반응, 뒷말, 인향, 소음 등의 24개의 키워드를 통해 말과 사람과 품격에 대한 생각들을 풀어낸다. 저자의 인문학적 소양을 바탕과 감성이 더해져 볼거리와 생각거리를 동시에 전한다. 한 장 한 장 넘길 때마다 자신의 말과 세계관에 대해 끝없는 질문을 던지게 될 것이다. 

말은 마음을 담아낸다. 말은 마음의 소리이다. 때문에 무심코 던지 한마디에 사람의 품성이 드러난다. 품성이 말하고 품성이 듣는 것이다. 격과 수준을 의미하는 한자‘품(品)’은 입‘구(口)’가 세 개 모여 이루어져있음을 알 수 있다. 말이 쌓이고 쌓여 한 사람의 품격이 된다는 뜻이다. 말을 죽일지 살릴지 신중히 결정해야 한다. 말은 한 사람의 입에서 나오지만 천 사람의 귀로 들어가고 끝내 만 사람의 입으로 옮겨지기 때문이다.
