words

It took me years to understand that words are often as important as experience, because words make experience last.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The pages are still blank, but there is a miraculous feeling of the words being there, written in invisible ink and clamoring to become visible.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No man means all he says, and yet very few say all they mean, for words are slippery and thought is viscous.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
He can compress the most words into the smallest ideas of any man I ever met.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I would say that music is the easiest means in which to express . . . but since words are my talent, I must try to express clumsily in words what the pure must would have done better.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when one will do.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Summer afternoon, summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We have as many planes of speech as does a painting planes of perspective which create perspective in a phrase. The most important word stands out most vividly defined in the very foreground of the sound plane. Less important words create a series of deeper planes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A newspaper is lumber made malleable. It is ink made into words and pictures. It is conceived, born, grows up and dies of old age in a day.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Poetry is thoughts that breathe, and words that burn.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I would define, in brief, the poetry of words as the rhythmical creation of Beauty.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I wrote a thousand words every day.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Think not those faithful who praise all thy words and actions; but those who kindly reprove thy faults.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Abuse of words has been the great instrument of sophistry and chicanery, of party, faction, and division of society.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no sickness worse for me than words that to be kind must lie.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nothing we use or hear or touch can be expressed in words that equal what we are given by the senses.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
By words the mind is winged.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I am a dreamer of words, of written words. I think I am reading; a word stops me. I leave the page. The syllables of the word begin to move around. Stressed accents begin to invert. The word abandons its meaning like an overload which is too heavy and prevents dreaming. Then words take on other meanings as if they had the right to be young. And the words wander away, looking in the nooks and crannies of vocabulary for new company, bad company.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The words of the world want to make sentences.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Words like freedom, justice, democracy are not common concepts; on the contrary, they are rare. People are not born knowing what these are. It takes enormous and, above all, individual effort to arrive at the respect for other people that these words imply.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Language is a skin: I rub my language against the other. It is as if I had words instead of fingers, or fingers at the tip of my words. My language trembles with desire.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
As a profession advertising is young; as a force it is as old as the world. The first four words ever uttered, Let there be light, constitute its charter. All nature is vibrant with its impulse.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Sex pleasure in woman is a kind of magic spell; it demands complete abandon; if words or movements oppose the magic of caresses, the spell is broken.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Today the discredit of words is very great. Most of the time the media transmit lies. In the face of an intolerable world, words appear to change very little. State power has become congenitally deaf, which is why --but the editorialists forget it --terrorists are reduced to bombs and hijacking.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Technique is communication: the two words are synonymous in conductors.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nature in darkness groans and men are bound to sullen contemplation in the night: restless they turn on beds of sorrow; in their inmost brain feeling the crushing wheels, they rise, they write the bitter words of stern philosophy and knead the bread of knowledge with tears and groans.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Lying increases the creative faculties, expands the ego, lessens the friction of social contacts. It is only in lies, wholeheartedly and bravely told, that human nature attains through words and speech the forbearance, the nobility, the romance, the idealism, that -- being what it is -- it falls so short of in fact and in deed.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The professors laugh at themselves, they laugh at life; they long ago abjured the bitch-goddess Success, and the best of them will fight for his scholastic ideals with a courage and persistence that would shame a soldier. The professor is not afraid of words like truth; in fact he is not afraid of words at all.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The basic difference between being assertive and being aggressive is how our words and behavior affect the rights and well being of others.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There are words which sever hearts more than sharp swords; there are words the point of which sting the heart through the course of a whole life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You REAP what You SOW: Life is like a boomerang. Our thoughts, deeds and words return to us sooner or later, with astounding accuracy.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
These repetitive words and phrases are merely methods of convincing the subconscious mind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The actor searches vainly for the sound of a vanished tradition, and critic and audience follow suit. We have lost all sense of ritual and ceremony -- whether it be connected with Christmas, birthdays or funerals -- but the words remain with us and old impulses stir in the marrow. We feel we should have rituals, we should do something about getting them and we blame the artists for not finding them for us. So the artist sometimes attempts to find new rituals with only his imagination as his source: he imitates the outer form of ceremonies, pagan or baroque, unfortunately adding his own trapping -- the result is rarely convincing. And after the years and years of weaker and waterier imitations we now find ourselves rejecting the very notion of a holy stage. It is not the fault of the holy that it has become a middle-class weapon to keep the children good.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Women know the way to rear up children (to be just). They know a simple, merry, tender knack of tying sashes, fitting baby-shoes, and stringing pretty words that make no sense. And kissing full sense into empty words.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Books are masters who instruct us without rods or ferules, without words or anger, without bread or money. If you approach them, they are not asleep; if you seek them, they do not hide; if you blunder, they do not scold; if you are ignorant, they do not laugh at you.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Myth is the hidden part of every story, the buried part, the region that is still unexplored because there are as yet no words to enable us to get there. Myth is nourished by silence as well as by words.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Among my most prized possessions are words that I have never spoken.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Grasp the subject, the words will follow.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
By such innovations are languages enriched, when the words are adopted by the multitude, and naturalized by custom.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Would you convey my compliments to the purist who reads your proofs and tell him or her that I write in a sort of broken-down patois which is something like the way a Swiss waiter talks, and that when I split an infinitive, God damn it, I split it so it will stay split, and when I interrupt the velvety smoothness of my more or less literate syntax with a few sudden words of bar-room vernacular, that is done with the eyes wide open and the mind relaxed but attentive.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

It is not whether your words or actions are tough or gentle; it is the spirit behind your actions and words that announces your inner state.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Language is a process of free creation; its laws and principles are fixed, but the manner in which the principles of generation are used is free and infinitely varied. Even the interpretation and use of words involves a process of free creation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Short words are the best and old words when short are best of all.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our best evidence of what people truly feel and believe comes less from their words than from their deeds.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is no small mischief to a boy, that many of the best years of his life should be devoted to the learning of what can never be of any real use to any human being. His mind is necessarily rendered frivolous and superficial by the long habit of attaching importance to words instead of things; to sound instead of sense.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Appreciative words are the most powerful force for good on earth!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The successful Accelerated Reader is able to read larger than normal blocks or bites of the printed page with each eye stop. He has accepted, without reservation, the philosophy that the most important benefit of reading is the gaining of information, ideas, mental picture and entertainment-not the fretting over words. He has come to the realization that words in and of themselves are for the most part insignificant.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There sighs, lamentations and loud wailings resounded through the starless air, so that at first it made me weep; strange tongues, horrible language, words of pain, tones of anger, voices loud and hoarse, and with these the sound of hands, made a tumult which is whirling through that air forever dark, and sand eddies in a whirlwind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
