As far as I'm concerned, 'whom' is a word that was invented to make everyone sound like a butler.
To love the one who loves you, To admire the one who admires you, In a word, to be the idol of one's idol, Is exceeding the limit of human joy; It is stealing fire from heaven.
Delphine de Girardin
I'm completely cricketed out. If I never have to write another word about cricket again, I'll be a happy man.
It's a new challenge to see how people can change your look. I like words like transformation, reinvention, and chameleon. Because one word I don't like is predictable.
I think the worst and most insidious procrastination for me is research. I will be looking for some bit of fact or figure to include in the novel, and before I know, I've wasted an entire morning delving into that subject matter without a word written.
Discipline? I don't know the meaning of the word.
I got this idea of doing a really serious big work-it would be precisely like a novel, with a single difference: Every word of it would be true from beginning to end.
The Bible is not man's word about God, but God's word about man.
I think by now I have made it fairly clear that I am not very happy with the word hope. I don't believe in people just hoping.
Aung San Suu Kyi
He who wants to persuade should put his trust not in the right argument, but in the right word. The power of sound has always been greater than the power of sense.
I was born on a plantation, and things weren't so good. We didn't have any money. I never thought of the word 'poor' 'til I got to be a man, but when you live in a house that you can always peek out of and see what kind of day it is, you're not doing so well. And your rest room is not inside the house.
B. B. King
I think 'destiny' is just a fancy word for a psychological pattern.
What a word is truth. Slippery, tricky, unreliable. I tried in these books to tell the truth.
The word 'geek' today does not mean what it used to mean. A geek isn't the skinny kid with a pocket protector and acne. There can be computer geeks, video game geeks, car geeks, military geeks, and sports geeks. Being a geek just means that you're passionate about something.
If the word has the potency to revive and make us free, it has also the power to blind, imprison, and destroy.
I don't feel I write fast. I write in longhand and do so much revision. On the page, it's so old-fashioned. I could write a whole novel on scrap paper, scribbles and things. I keep looking at it and something develops. For me, using a word processor would mean staring at a screen for too many hours.
Joyce Carol Oates
Glamour is a beautiful illusion - the word 'glamour' originally meant a literal magic spell - that promises to transcend ordinary life and make the ideal real. It depends on a special combination of mystery and grace. Too much information breaks the spell.
I honor God that much in the way I play. That's why I never believe in getting tired. I don't even know what that word means.
The word diva to me means doing something supernatural with something natural.
The word 'equality' shows up too much in our founding documents for anyone to pretend it's not the American way.
The kindest word to describe my performance in school was Sloth.
No, generally I think influence is used as a nice word for plagiarism.
For as long as I can remember, I have been passionately intrigued by 'Africa,' by the word itself, by its flora and fauna, its topographical diversity and grandeur; but above all else, by the sheer variety of the colors of its people, from tan and sepia to jet and ebony.
Henry Louis Gates
Failure is a word that I simply don't accept.
John H. Johnson
I can't tell you what I had for breakfast, but I can sing every single word of rock and roll.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
