with a grain of salt

Take one’s words with a grain of salt. I always overheard my grandfather said it in a grand fashion, when I was just a little boy. This took me sometime to absorb its meaning. What has salt got to do with someone’s words? I asked myself. As I grew older, and merged into the adult world, it just dawn on me that its meaning was found in the world of words, that we should always separate in miniscule portions statements launched, sometimes skeptical, in order to arrive at truth.
