Every different director has another language - for instance, Hitchcock does not like any bright color ever, unless the story says 'there goes the girl in a red dress.'
One can say of language that it is potentially the only human home, the only dwelling place that cannot be hostile to man.
I want a language that speaks the truth.
My language and my sensibility are yearning to admit a kind of religious or transcendent dimension. But then there's the reality: there's no Heaven, no afterlife of the sort we were promised, and no personal God.
I did my first movie, 'The Mambo Kings,' in America without speaking the language. I learned the lines phonetically. I had an interpreter actually just to understand directions from my director.
French is a foreign language, but I've been speaking it since I was 18 so it's second nature to me.
Kristin Scott Thomas
The relations between rhetoric and ethics are disturbing: the ease with which language can be twisted is worrisome, and the fact that our minds accept these perverse games so docilely is no less cause for concern.
When you work in a different language you are not so attached to the words.
Language should be an ever developing procedure and not an isolated occurrence.
I'm not called Jude Law, I have three names; I'm called 'Hunk Jude Law' or 'Heartthrob Jude Law'. In England anyway, that's my full name.

I love the Italian culture - it's a beautiful culture. I love the language, the Italian people, their music, their attitudes... I just love it! Sometimes I think I'm an Italian trapped in a Spanish woman's body.

I think it's important and I think it's true that our life experience is going to be about our attitude, our thoughts, our beliefs, our speech and our actions. We can transform our life experience simply by changing our language.
It is much easier to learn another language when you are young, enthusiastic and unembarrassed.
I did three DVD's for 'Baby Einstein,' teaching babies how to sign. It really helps a parent communicate because babies can't talk. But it has been proven that they can communicate using their hands to communicate. So sign language is a great tool in that way.
Part of being out there, campaigning, talking to people, is being able to read body language.
I try to show what it is about language and music that enthralls, because I think those are the two elements of poetry.
While women across the globe have many differences - language, culture, environment - our similarities are undeniable, and the impact of abuse and oppression affects us all.
Image is an international language.
I dislike pastiche; it attracts attention to the language only.
I met my grandfather just before he died, and it was the first time that I had seen Dad with a relative of his. It was interesting to see my own father as a son and the body language and alteration in attitude that comes with that, and it sort of changed our relationship for the better.
The theatre is like a Catholic Mass of language.
I taught principally German language and literature at Eton. But any master with private pupils must be prepared to teach anything they ask for. That can be as diverse as the early paintings of Salvador Dali or how bumblebees manage to fly.
John le Carre
While I admire the insights of many of the people in the world of computing, I get this cold feeling that I speak a different language.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
