Quote of the Day
A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.
William Arthur Ward
Drawing on my fine command of the English language, I said nothing.
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 language of friendship is not words but meanings.
Henry David Thoreau
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.
We call that person who has lost his father, an orphan; and a widower that man who has lost his wife. But that man who has known the immense unhappiness of losing a friend, by what name do we call him? Here every language is silent and holds its peace in impotence.
An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language.
A shoe is not only a design, but it's a part of your body language, the way you walk. The way you're going to move is quite dictated by your shoes.
The world's most famous and popular language is music.
The English language is nobody's special property. It is the property of the imagination: it is the property of the language itself.
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.
The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help.
Summer afternoon, summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.
People need realness, reality. People can sense when someone is being pretentious or fake. It's because you feel it; you see it in someone's body language.
My father was very disappointed by war and fighting. And he thought language could help us out of cycles of revenge and animosity. And so, as a journalist, he always found himself asking lots of questions and trying to gather information. He was always very clear to underscore the fact that Jewish people and Arab people were brother and sister.
Naomi Shihab Nye
Political language... is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.
Language is wine upon the lips.
Fashion is a language. Some know it, some learn it, some never will - like an instinct.
You stand with the least likely to succeed until success is succeeded by something more valuable: kinship. You stand with the belligerent, the surly and the badly behaved until bad behavior is recognized for the language it is: the vocabulary of the deeply wounded and of those whose burdens are more than they can bear.
Self-control is one mark of a mature person; it applies to control of language, physical treatment of others, and the appetites of the body.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
I can't relate to lazy people. We don't speak the same language. I don't understand you. I don't want to understand you.
Our language has wisely sensed the two sides of being alone. It 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.
Some advice: keep the flame of curiosity and wonderment alive, even when studying for boring exams. That is the well from which we scientists draw our nourishment and energy. And also, learn the math. Math is the language of nature, so we have to learn this language.
Mother Nature is always speaking. She speaks in a language understood within the peaceful mind of the sincere observer. Leopards, cobras, monkeys, rivers and trees; they all served as my teachers when I lived as a wanderer in the Himalayan foothills.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
