Fun Phrase Friday: A picture is worth a thousand words

Happy Friday!

This weeks fun phrase is ” A picture is worth a thousand words”.

Meaning: Its much easier to convey some ideas geographically than verbally, or in writing.

History: It sounds like a dictum from the city editor of the New York Daily News, but, in fact, some quite similar (“One picture is worth more than ten thousand words.”) was a Chinese proverb long ago. The Russian writer Ivan Turganev wrote (in Fathers and Sons in 1862): ” A picture shows me at a glance what it takes dozens of pages of a book to expound.”
