Desisting from committing oneself

Dealing with some very powerful words and meanings in class, I realise how these words are more abused than used. Words like, freedom, love, friendship, person, soul, spirit, God,.... For most of us, these words are great, but only on paper and when uttered in a very high pitch from the pulpit through the mike. But when we encounter them in person, they hardly mean anything at all. Hence we gladly and generously speak about these at length but desist from committing ourselves to these values and principles. We prefer to keep these words and their meanings alive and active only for our sermons, conferences, talks and sessions. In real life we try for the easy way out or around these principles.
