So if not the money, what did he steal? Hmmm?

Ambiguity as well ...

Your right Sally perfect script is neigh on impossible. I am dealing with an incredibly difficult family situation at present with a 40 year silence and it really needs everyone to assume good intentions when they read.  :knit:

Whenever I am tempted to think I have scribed something so perfectly there is no way anyone could misinterpret it, I remind myself of this 7-word sentence and its 6 different meanings.

I never said he stole the money.

Now read it again, six times.  Each time, stress a different word.

I never said he stole the money.

I never said he stole the money.

I never said he stole the money.

I never said he stole the money.

I never said he stole the money.

I never said he stole the money.
What are the six different meanings? I've been quoting it over and over for what seems like days and I still don;t see all the other meanings. :dunce:
the most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, loving concern.

I'm sure there's different interpretations. Mine would be:
1) It wasn't me that said he stole it (someone else did?)
2) I did not say he stole it. (it's all a  lie)
3) I didn't say it aloud (but I think he did)
4) I didn't say it was him (but someone did steal it)
5) he didn't steal it (just borrowed it)
6) It wasn't the money he stole (check the stock)
