Commitment. This is my favorite word because in some way, people who are committed are always much more interesting and much more reliable, and much more, I would say, deep than people who are not.
Since a politician never believes what he says, he is quite surprised to be taken at his word.
Charles de Gaulle
I'm looking forward to becoming a marvelous - excuse the word marvelous - character actress. like Marie Dressler, like Will Rogers.
I never do anything fun, because I'm a housewife. I hate that word 'housewife.' I prefer to be called 'domestic goddess.'
I emphasize teachers because they are largely left out of the debate. None of the bombastic reports that come from Washington and think tanks telling us what needs to be 'fixed' - I hate such a mechanistic word, as if our schools were automobile engines - ever asks the opinions of teachers.
Discretion is the polite word for hypocrisy.
Shah is a kind of magic word with the Persian people.
Mohammed Reza Pahlavi
Socialism's not a word that I use. I say 'social democracy' because I don't think the government needs to own all the means of production.
Neuroscientists talk a lot about brain circuits. In fact, the word 'circuit' is probably misleading. We do not know where most circuits begin and end. And unlike an electrical circuit, brain connections are heavily reciprocal and recursive, so that a direction of information flow can be inferred but sometimes not proven.
Thomas R. Insel
For just when ideas fail, a word comes in to save the situation.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Coincidence is the word we use when we can't see the levers and pulleys.
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.'
It's just us trying to start a movement where everybody passes on a bit of cooking knowledge. We estimate that one person can potentially affect 180 others very quickly so we're just trying to spread the word.
The idea that everything is purposeful really changes the way you live. To think that everything that you do has a ripple effect, that every word that you speak, every action that you make affects other people and the planet.
'Content' is a word that has never sat well with me. Like 'maturity'. They are two words I've never liked. I think they imply some sort of decay. A settling.
Yankees don't understand that the Southern way of talking is a language of nuance. What we can do in the South is we can take a word and change it just a little bit and make it mean something altogether different.
Freedom without limits is just a word.
Without vanity, without coquetry, without curiosity, in a word, without the fall, woman would not be woman. Much of her grace is in her frailty.
It's a damn poor mind that can only think of one way to spell a word.
Unlike scientism, science in the true sense of the word is open to unbiased investigation of any existing phenomena.
If any of you should ask me for an epitome of the Christian religion, I should say that it is in one word - prayer. Live and die without prayer, and you will pray long enough when you get to hell.
Maybe 'loner' is too strong a word, but I've always enjoyed being on my own.
Every word or concept, clear as it may seem to be, has only a limited range of applicability.
Together we will build an America where hope is a new job with a paycheck, not a faded word on an old bumper sticker.
The law is God's first word; the gospel is God's final word.
C. S. Lewis
