Simple Words are Powerful Words

 Simple Words are Powerful Words

A vocabulary of truth and simplicity will be of service throughout your life

It is mentioned that these words are frequently used and they are the core vocabulary of English. It means these words are simple and yet powerful enough to explain other words which are difficult to understand in a dictionary. It just shows that simple words are powerful in many ways:
