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.
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.
It's a strange world of language in which skating on thin ice can get you into hot water.
Franklin P. Jones
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.
Mostly people are ignorant, what is the language of painting. You know, they're ignorant. It is so difficult to make them aware, but time will teach them.
M. F. Husain
I've been alienating my public since I was 20 years old. When 'American Buffalo' came out on Broadway, people would storm out and say, 'How dare he use that kind of language!' Of course I'm alienating the public! That's what they pay me for.
The most beautiful words in the English language are 'not guilty'.
Body language is a very powerful tool. We had body language before we had speech, and apparently, 80% of what you understand in a conversation is read through the body, not the words.
If the word 'No' was removed from the English language, Ian Paisley would be speechless.
The wonders of the Grand Canyon cannot be adequately represented in symbols of speech, nor by speech itself. The resources of the graphic art are taxed beyond their powers in attempting to portray its features. Language and illustration combined must fail.
John Wesley Powell
The English language is nobody's special property. It is the property of the imagination: it is the property of the language itself.
The greatest obstacle to international understanding is the barrier of language.
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
Without a knowledge of mythology much of the elegant literature of our own language cannot be understood and appreciated.
Tears are the silent language of grief.
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 Charter of the United Nations expresses the noblest aspirations of man: abjuration of force in the settlement of disputes between states; the assurance of human rights and fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language or religion; the safeguarding of international peace and security.
Music is the soul of language.
'I am' is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that 'I do' is the longest sentence?
Dance is the hidden language of the soul of the body.
Fashion is a language. Some know it, some learn it, some never will - like an instinct.
Remember the movie 'The Matrix,' where virtual information popped up to help inform physical day-to-day reality? Such things won't always be the stuff of Hollywood. If the Internet is accessible via contact lenses, biographies will appear next to the faces of the people we talk to, and we will see subtitles if they speak a foreign language.
Never ask a woman if you may kiss her. Instead, learn to read body language.
As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: you liberate a city by destroying it. Words are to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests.
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.
C. S. Lewis
Martin Luther King, Jr.
