Now many have heard ' grown ups say '
' Sticks And Stones May Brake Our Bones '
' Words Will Not Hurt Us!'
Oh what a load of twaddle!
Words ill used can and do course so much pain
That lasts a life time - and course more to than a few
To die prematurely - leave scars in the minds - of those who survive

A saying to deter kids from using their hands to cause physical hurt when words are unkind and hurtful. Summarizes a thought against physical aggression, not necessarily to dismiss the fact that words can be as painful, I don't think. But you're right, words do have the power of causing hurt, that's for sure.
