Impossible is a word to be found only in the dictionary of fools.
The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary.
The word 'romance,' according to the dictionary, means excitement, adventure, and something extremely real. Romance should last a lifetime.
Dictionary is the only place that success comes before work. Hard work is the price we must pay for success. I think you can accomplish anything if you're willing to pay the price.
Who is to say who is the villain and who is the hero? Probably the dictionary.
Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary.
If you have a big enough dictionary, just about everything is a word.
Words - so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.
Always remember that striving and struggle precede success, even in the dictionary.
Sarah Ban Breathnach
And let a scholar all earth's volumes carry, he will be but a walking dictionary: a mere articulate clock.
I do love perusing the dictionary to find how many words I don't use - words that have specific, sharp, focused meaning. I also love the sound of certain words. I love the sound of the word pom-pom.
If a word in the dictionary were misspelled, how would we know?
I am an unmarried man, as opposed to a single man. A bachelor, according to the dictionary, is a man who has never been married. An unmarried man is not married at the moment. Many of these terms have fallen into disuse.

Look up the word role in the dictionary and you'll see it means playing a part. That's why I call myself a real model.

Charles de Lint

I keep a hotel room in my town, although I have a large house. And I go there at about 5:30 in the morning, and I start working. And I don't allow anybody to come in that room. I work on yellow pads and with ballpoint pens. I keep a Bible, a thesaurus, a dictionary, and a bottle of sherry. I stay there until midday.
It might interest you to know that the 1828 Noah Webster Dictionary identifies the optimist in complimentary terms, but says nothing about the pessimist. The word 'pessimist' was not in our vocabulary at that time. It's a modern 'invention' which I believe we should 'dis-invent.'
Most poets are elitist dregs more concerned with proving their skill with a dictionary than communicating ideas with impact.
The only way to learn a language properly, in fact, is to marry a man of that nationality. You get what they call in Europe a 'sleeping dictionary.' Of course, I have only been married five times, and I speak seven languages. I'm still trying to remember where I picked up the other two.
