Perhaps because they are strung together to start a spell in a fantasy book:
"Black Dragon. From darkness to darkness/ my voice echoes in the emptiness."
Or because they are placed together in a character's catch-phrase that becomes a theme of a show:
"All magic comes with a price!"
Or woven into a phrase that also inspires other works:
"By the pricking of my thumbs/ Something wicked this way comes."
Words can craft together whole worlds, birth characters, and plant thoughts and inspiration, and just simply yet profoundly tell a wonderful story that changes the reader's life.
The power of words never ceases to amaze me. It is in the exhilaration I feel every time I get that certain sentence or paragraph to convey just the right idea or emotion or description when writing a literary article or a fantasy story.
