Friendship is a word, the very sight of which in print makes the heart warm.
The word 'Christianity' is already a misunderstanding - in reality there has been only one Christian, and he died on the Cross.
Throughout my career, if I have done anything, I have paid attention to every note and every word I sing - if I respect the song. If I cannot project this to a listener, I fail.
Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, or even a stranger, if in a lonely place.
I don't like going out on a date unless I know the broad a little bit beforehand. By the way, 'broad' to me is not a detrimental term for women; it's simply another word for female. Anyway, I don't really go out a whole lot, because there aren't many girls I like to take out and spend a whole evening with - at least not an evening in public.
Brotherhood is not just a Bible word. Out of comradeship can come and will come the happy life for all.
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 started riding the whole 'fluffy' train, and it's a cute word and socially a lot more acceptable than someone saying is fat or obese. If you call a girl 'fat,' yo, she'll raise hell, but if you say, 'Aw girl, look at you, you're fluffy,' there's almost a sexy appeal to it.
Marriage: A word which should be pronounced 'mirage'.
Some animals utter a loud cry. Some are silent, and others have a voice, which in some cases may be expressed by a word; in others, it cannot. There are also noisy animals and silent animals, musical and unmusical kinds, but they are mostly noisy about the breeding season.
The word love has by no means the same sense for both sexes, and this is one cause of the serious misunderstandings that divide them.
Simone de Beauvoir
The secret of joy in work is contained in one word - excellence. To know how to do something well is to enjoy it.
Pearl S. Buck
No word is absolutely wrong or dirty or insulting. It all depends upon context and intention.
I'm a man of my word.
Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
Today when I think about diversity, I actually think about the word 'inclusion.' And I think this is a time of great inclusion. It's not men, it's not women alone. Whether it's geographic, it's approach, it's your style, it's your way of learning, the way you want to contribute, it's your age - it is really broad.
Often we can help each other most by leaving each other alone; at other times we need the hand-grasp and the word of cheer.
Children show scars like medals. Lovers use them as secrets to reveal. A scar is what happens when the word is made flesh.
Sarcasm is weird. Even not in acting, in life I feel like 'sarcastic' is a word that people use to describe me sometimes so when I meet someone, it's almost like they feel like they have to also be sarcastic, but it can sometimes just come off as mean if it's not used in the right way.
Trust is a big word for me. Loyalty and trust, for me, are everything. It's the core of what I'm about and what the people around me hopefully are about. It's a certain thing that gives you a sense of security. It's the biggest factor in everything I do.
I think the reason that swearing is both so offensive and so attractive is that it is a way to push people's emotional buttons, and especially their negative emotional buttons. Because words soak up emotional connotations and are processed involuntarily by the listener, you can't will yourself not to treat the word in terms of what it means.
Risk isn't a word in my vocabulary. It's my very existence.
Using a big word like 'plagiarism'... always causes some damage. It will always do lasting damage, like accusations of racism.
The right word may be effective, but no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause.
If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be 'meetings.'
Each generation faces different issues and challenges, but our standard must always be measured by God's word.
John F. Kennedy
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
