Have you ever taken the time to consider the many different ways in which you can say a single word or phrase? As a child and even as a teenager I could not fully appreciate the value in the meaning of words. The thesaurus is a truly wonderful tool to use to build vocabulary as well as say the same thing in a hundred different ways.
