Karl Barth and the all-sufficient word “indeed”

Do you want to appear intelligent and attentive in any conversation? Karl Barth once said that you only need one word: Indeed.

 

To strongly affirm…indeed!

To be noncommittal…rub your chin and say…indeed

Questioning, raise your eyebrows…indeed?

To be blandly neutral, sigh and say…indeed

Bored to tears, politely nod and say…indeed…………

Express surprise…indeed!?

To give support, smile and say…indeed.

 

This word can get you through meetings, classes, and even the holidays.
