Quote of the Day
A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.
William Arthur Ward
Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
The thing to do, it seems to me, is to prepare yourself so you can be a rainbow in somebody else's cloud. Somebody who may not look like you. May not call God the same name you call God - if they call God at all. I may not dance your dances or speak your language. But be a blessing to somebody. That's what I think.
The limits of my language means the limits of my world.
Dance is the hidden language of the soul of the body.
Drawing on my fine command of the English language, I said nothing.
The English language is nobody's special property. It is the property of the imagination: it is the property of the language itself.
Coffee is a language in itself.
Political language... is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.
The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help.
If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.
Language has no independent existence apart from the people who use it. It is not an end in itself; it is a means to an end of understanding who you are and what society is like.
Language is wine upon the lips.
In making a speech one must study three points: first, the means of producing persuasion; second, the language; third the proper arrangement of the various parts of the speech.
We're losing social skills, the human interaction skills, how to read a person's mood, to read their body language, how to be patient until the moment is right to make or press a point. Too much exclusive use of electronic information dehumanises what is a very, very important part of community life and living together.
The language of friendship is not words but meanings.
Henry David Thoreau
The world's most famous and popular language is music.
I can still remember the afternoon, on my 15th birthday, when I opened up 'The Virgin and the Gypsy,' D.H. Lawrence's novella, in my tiny cell in boarding school, and whole worlds of possibility opened out that I had never guessed existed. The language was on fire and sang of liberation.
Without a knowledge of mythology much of the elegant literature of our own language cannot be understood and appreciated.
Two races share today the soil of Canada. These people had not always been friends. But I hasten to say it. There is no longer any family here but the human family. It matters not the language people speak, or the altars at which they kneel.
When the English language gets in my way, I walk over it.
Let's get into talking about how autism is similar animal behavior. The thing is I don't think in a language, and animals don't think in a language. It's sensory based thinking, thinking in pictures, thinking in smells, thinking in touches. It's putting these sensory based memories into categories.
Language... has created the word 'loneliness' to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word 'solitude' to express the glory of being alone.
The most beautiful words in the English language are 'not guilty'.
Every language is a world. Without translation, we would inhabit parishes bordering on silence.
I would say colonialism is a wonderful thing. It spread civilization to Africa. Before it they had no written language, no wheel as we know it, no schools, no hospitals, not even normal clothing.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Nothing but heaven itself is better than a friend who is really a friend.
