The Written Word Is Not the Spoken Word

 The Written Word Is Not the Spoken Word 

Abe Lincoln reading to his son Tad.

 The written word 
 is not the spoken 
 conversational word 

(TOP) "The earliest known draft of the United States Declaration of Independence
a fragment in the handwriting of Thomas Jefferson. June 1776."
The numerous words that were crossed out, inserted 
and changed shows how the written word is usually crafted.
(BOTTOM) Top of a finished polished Declaration of Independence 
published version, known as a broadside. 

 The written word is molded, 
 crafted and polished 

 And does not include 
 the body language and 
 the silent  expressions 
 of speech
