One of the most popular games to watch on eSports is 'League of Legends,' a game that blends role-playing, managing resources and shouting at your friends. Again, if I had another thousand words, I might be able to scratch the surface of this game, but all you need to know is that gamers love to play it, and even more of them love to watch it.
A slender acquaintance with the world must convince every man that actions, not words, are the true criterion of the attachment of friends.
Wisdom does not show itself so much in precept as in life - in firmness of mind and a mastery of appetite. It teaches us to do as well as to talk; and to make our words and actions all of a color.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
All knowledge which ends in words will die as quickly as it came to life, with the exception of the written word: which is its mechanical part.
Leonardo da Vinci
You can stroke people with words.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
I think the written word is probably the best medium of communication because you have time to reflect, you have time to choose your words, to get your sentences exactly right. Whereas when you're being interviewed, say, you have to talk on the fly, you have to improvise, you can change sentences around, and they're not exactly right.
Kind words not only lift our spirits in the moment they are given, but they can linger with us over the years.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
You guys are both saying the same thing. The only reason you're arguing is because you're using different words.
S. I. Hayakawa
People often complain that music is too ambiguous, that what they should think when they hear it is so unclear, whereas everyone understands words. With me, it is exactly the opposite, and not only with regard to an entire speech but also with individual words.
There are about 30 words around you all the time, like 'thread' or 'exit.'
The summer of 1991, I took $2,000 of my savings and a desktop program, and I asked my friends to write 800 words about something they cared about. I got eight or nine articles and put them together. It was no frills, black and white, no graphics. I printed them out and just dumped piles around D.C.
All our words from loose using have lost their edge.
A man who lives right, and is right, has more power in his silence than another has by his words.
The two most frightening words in Washington are 'bipartisan consensus.' Bipartisan consensus is when my doctor and my lawyer agree with my wife that I need help.
P. J. O'Rourke
Words are not trivial. They matter because they raise consciousness.
I think, in a way, I invented the term 'fight club' and that these things have always existed, but they never really had a label. Nobody had a language to apply to them. I created that language in two words and I've been paid a great deal of money for inventing two words and labeling something that has always been around.
Words can sometimes, in moments of grace, attain the quality of deeds.
What we call 'morals' is simply blind obedience to words of command.
I think men know to seduce women though words and conversation and nice gestures. That's much sexier than when a man uses muscle.
I love words. Sudoku I don't get into, I'm not into numbers that much, and there are people who are hooked on that. But crossword puzzles, I just can't - if I get a puppy and I paper train him and I put the - if all of a sudden I'd open the paper and there's a crossword puzzle - 'No, no, you can't go on that, honey. I'll take it.'
When he was born, I looked at my little boy and felt an unconditional love I never knew was inside me. As he grew, and I watched him stagger about, squeak his first words, and turn into a beautiful little boy, that feeling did not change.
I have trouble with modern art. But in general, all art forms fascinate me - art is the way human beings express what we can't say in words.
You must realize that I was suffering from love and I knew him as intimately as I knew my own image in a mirror. In other words, I knew him only in relation to myself.
That is the one single word that the food industry hates: 'addiction.' They much prefer words like 'crave-ability' and 'allure.'
Friendship needs no words - it is solitude delivered from the anguish of loneliness.
John F. Kennedy
