I find Cambridge an asylum, in every sense of the word.
A. E. Housman
I never use the word, it's loaded. What love means to me is need.
The reason I keep talking about a wife and saying the word 'wife' on stage is because it seems a funny word to me. The more you say it, the more it seems to detach from that person and become this sort of abstract thing: that you would set out to find a wife, that it would be an objective like buying a new car.
Cancelled isn't a bad word because it happens everyday.
The word courage - God, I love that word. Words are so important to me.
I believe in a visual language that should be as strong as the written word.
I don't play the traditional Charlie Parker songs. But I do improvise and I do create with my instrument, and that to me is jazz. But there are people who use the word 'jazz' only in a traditional sense, and they would be offended by that, and that's fine.
For many, 'desire' is a bad word, something we're supposed to 'give up for God.' That kind of thinking can be really destructive because it teaches people to deny their hearts, their true selves.
Obedience to the word in humility of mind never confuses.
John Nelson Darby
Training is fabulous because it gives you a basis, a strong structure, so that when you're unbelievably nervous and you think that you can't get a word out, you will get the word out.
It's a pretty sure thing that the player's bat is what speaks loudest when it's contract time, but there are moments when the glove has the last word.
Don't call me a journalist; I hate the word. It's pretentious!
These rules may seem simple enough, but it will require great morale and physical courage to adhere to them. But if carried out in the strict sense of the word it will surely lead to a greater success than could otherwise be attained.
We need to pray and read the Bible every day, and regardless of whatever else happens to you, that tends to keep you close to Him, because you are constantly in touch through His Word.
I have become intrigued with the combining of seemingly unrelated ideas or images, or the drawing upon the many, sometimes dissimilar, meanings a word might have.
As a woman, you feel that you shouldn't want to better yourself against others. Ambition has become such an ugly word, hasn't it?
In the nineteenth century the more grandiose word inspiration began to replace the word idea in the arts.
If only I was as eloquent as Demosthenes, I would have to do no more than repeat a single word three times.
Johann Georg Hamann
Certainly my life will not ever be as private and discreet, and perhaps I should even use the word insulated, as it was before.
Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled, either by a power within them, or by a power without them; either by the word of God, or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible, or by the bayonet.
Robert Charles Winthrop
It is a coincidence that Mathangi is the Goddess of Music and the spoken word, which can be rap.
The kind of true-life writing that is fun to read - that makes an ally of the reader - is the kind that you are so nervous about putting down on paper that you lock the Word file with a secret password and encrypt it - and all of it.
I came up with the term 'mindfreak' because I didn't like the word 'magician.' I felt like I wanted to coin a term that would be basically the reaction to my art. It would be a mindfreak and so that's why I came up with that. But, many people say I'm really a student of humanity and psychology.
I had this vague notion that one day I might be editor of 'Vogue China.' It was a bizarre ambition, as I didn't speak a word of Chinese. There were flaws in my plan, admittedly.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
