there's just not a space or moment for such big words

I don't know- I don't want to talk as much," she said, denting her chin thoughtfully with her forefinger. "It's nicer to think dear, pretty thoughts and keep them in one's heart, like treasures. I don't like to have them laughed at or wondered over. And somehow I don't want to use big words anymore. It's almost a pity, isn't it, now that I'm really growing big enough to say them if I did want to. It's fun to be almost grown up in someways, but it's not the kind of fun I expected. There's so much to learn and do and think that there isn't time for big words.

-Anne of Green Gables
