If someone hits you with a stick, it hurts you. If someone hits you with a stone, it hurts you. So, sticks and stones can hurt people. Bad, mean and cruel words can also hurt our feelings. So, sticks and stones are like bad, mean and cruel words. That's why we use a common expression when someone hurts us with their words: "Sticks and stones can hurt my bones, but words will never hurt me."
