You can talk about capitalism and communism and all that sort of thing, but the important thing is the struggle everybody is engaged in to get better living conditions, and they are not interested too much in government.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The guilty think all talk is of themselves.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When people talk of the freedom of writing, speaking or thinking I cannot choose but laugh. No such thing ever existed. No such thing now exists; but I hope it will exist. But it must be hundreds of years after you and I shall write and speak no more.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All this talk and turmoil and noise and movement and desire is outside of the veil; within the veil is silence and calm and rest.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Sometimes just a smile on our face can help to make this world a better place. Stand up for the things that are right. Try to talk things out instead of fight. Lend a hand when you can, get involved this is good. You can help to make a difference in your neighborhood.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For a crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You smile with pomp and rigor, you talk of benevolence and virtue; I act with benevolence and virtue and get murdered time after time.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

I know one husband and wife who, whatever the official reasons given to the court for the break up of their marriage, were really divorced because the husband believed that nobody ought to read while he was talking and the wife that nobody ought to talk while she was reading.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Junk is the ideal product... the ultimate merchandise. No sales talk necessary. The client will crawl through a sewer and beg to buy.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A woman asking Am I good? Am I satisfied? is extremely selfish. The less women fuss about themselves, the less they talk to other women, the more they try to please their husbands, the happier the marriage is going to be.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The minute you try to talk business with him he takes the attitude that he is a gentleman and a scholar, and the moment you try to approach him on the level of his moral integrity he starts to talk business.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is chiefly through books that we enjoy intercourse with superior minds, and these invaluable means of communication are in the reach of all. In the best books, great men talk to us, give us their most precious thoughts, and pour their souls into ours.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never. In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Men always talk about the most important things to perfect strangers. In the perfect stranger we perceive man himself; the image of a God is not disguised by resemblances to an uncle or doubts of wisdom of a mustache.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Women prefer to talk in twos, while men prefer to talk in threes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Sermons remain one of the last forms of public discourse where it is culturally forbidden to talk back.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To me a book is a message from the gods to mankind; or, if not, should never be published at all. A message from the gods should be delivered at once. It is damnably blasphemous to talk about the autumn season and so on. How dare the author or publisher demand a price for doing his duty, the highest and most honorable to which a man can be called?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We have to talk about liberating minds as well as liberating society.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Murders are exciting and lift people into a heart-beating awe as religion is supposed to do, after seeing one in the street young couples will go back to bed and make love, people will cross themselves and thank God for the gift of their stuporous lives, old folks will talk to each other over cups of hot water with lemon because murders are enlivened sermons to be analyzed and considered and relished, they speak to the timid of the dangers of rebellion, murders are perceived as momentary descents of God and so provide joy and hope and righteous satisfaction to parishioners, who will talk about them for years afterward to anyone who will listen.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Far more numerous are those as such; who think to little and talk to much.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The components of anxiety, stress, fear, and anger do not exist independently of you in the world. They simply do not exist in the physical world, even though we talk about them as if they do.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There seems to be no stopping drug frenzy once it takes hold of a nation. What starts with an innocuous HUGS, NOT DRUGS bumper sticker soon leads to wild talk of shooting dealers and making urine tests a condition for employment -- anywhere.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We who officially value freedom of speech above life itself seem to have nothing to talk about but the weather.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Men talk as if victory were something fortunate. Work is victory.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Never to talk to ones self is a form of hypocrisy.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Forgive me my nonsense as I also forgive the nonsense of those who think they can talk sense.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Great people talk about ideas. Small people talk about other people.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Never speak of yourself to others; make them talk about themselves instead; therein lies the whole art of pleasing. Everybody knows it, and everyone forgets it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In the dime stores and bus stations, people talk of situations, read books, repeat quotations, draw conclusions on the wall.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We hear about constitutional rights, free speech and the free press. Every time I hear those words I say to myself, That man is a Red, that man is a Communist. You never heard a real American talk in that manner.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I want to talk with people who care about things that matter that will make a life-changing difference.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

He talked on for ever; and you wished him to talk on for ever.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Madame, it is an old word and each one takes it new and wears it out himself. It is a word that fills with meaning as a bladder with air and the meaning goes out of it as quickly. It may be punctured as a bladder is punctured and patched and blown up again and if you have not had it does not exist for you. All people talk of it, but those who have had it are marked by it, and I would not wish to speak of it further since of all things it is the most ridiculous to talk of and only fools go through it many times.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

When the stomach is full, it is easy to talk of fasting.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It does seem so pleasant to talk with an old acquaintance who knows what you know. I see so many new folks nowadays who seem to have neither past nor future. Conversation has got to have some root in the past, or else you have got to explain every remark you make, and it wears a person out.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Everyone has a success mechanism and a failure mechanism. The failure mechanism goes off by itself. The success mechanism only goes off with a goal. Every time we write down and talk about a goal we push the button to start the success mechanism.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Anybody who thinks talk is cheap should get some legal advice.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I have often been asked, Do not people bore you? I do not understand quite what that means. I suppose the calls of the stupid and curious, especially of newspaper reporters, are always inopportune. I also dislike people who try to talk down to my understanding. They are like people who when walking with you try to shorten their steps to suit yours; the hypocrisy in both cases is equally exasperating.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Literature is my Utopia. Here I am not disfranchised. No barrier of the senses shuts me out from the sweet, gracious discourse of my book-friends. They talk to me without embarrassment or awkwardness.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When we talk about understanding, surely it takes place only when the mind listens completely -- the mind being your heart, your nerves, your ears- when you give your whole attention to it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If you can talk brilliantly enough about a problem, it can create the consoling illusion that it has been mastered.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We would rather speak badly of ourselves than not talk about ourselves at all.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We talk on principal, but act on motivation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. Make all your friends feel there is something special in them. Look at the sunny side of everything. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Be as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give everyone a smile. Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others. Be too big for worry and too noble for anger.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The war is dreadful. It is the business of the artist to follow it home to the heart of the individual fighters -- not to talk in armies and nations and numbers -- but to track it home.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Most people think life sucks, and then you die. Not me. I beg to differ. I think life sucks, then you get cancer, then your dog dies, your wife leaves you, the cancer goes into remission, you get a new dog, you get remarried, you owe ten million dollars in medical bills but you work hard for thirty-five years and you pay it back and then -- one day -- you have a massive stroke, your whole right side is paralyzed, you have to limp along the streets and speak out of the left side of your mouth and drool but you go into rehabilitation and regain the power to walk and the power to talk and then -- one day -- you step off a curb at Sixty-seventh Street, and BANG you get hit by a city bus and then you die. Maybe.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Every waking moments we talk to ourselves about the things we experience. Our self-talk, the thoughts we communicate to ourselves, in turn control the way we feel and act.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You ask whether I have ever been in love: fool as I am, I am not such a fool as that. But if one is only to talk from first-hand experience, conversation would be a very poor business. But though I have no personal experience of the things they call love, I have what is better -- the experience of Sappho, of Euripides, of Catallus, of Shakespeare, of Spenser, of Austen, of Bronte, of anyone else I have read.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
