Quote of the Day
People may hear your words, but they feel your attitude.
John C. Maxwell
A slender acquaintance with the world must convince every man that actions, not words, are the true criterion of the attachment of friends.
Words are but symbols for the relations of things to one another and to us; nowhere do they touch upon absolute truth.
To use the same words is not a sufficient guarantee of understanding; one must use the same words for the same genus of inward experience; ultimately one must have one's experiences in common.
Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all rules and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence. In other words, it is war minus the shooting.
As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: you liberate a city by destroying it. Words are to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests.
Where words are restrained, the eyes often talk a great deal.
Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words.
Edgar Allan Poe
A thousand words will not leave so deep an impression as one deed.
No one should be ashamed to admit they are wrong, which is but saying, in other words, that they are wiser today than they were yesterday.
When deeds speak, words are nothing.
Words do two major things: They provide food for the mind and create light for understanding and awareness.
A picture is a poem without words.
Gestures, in love, are incomparably more attractive, effective and valuable than words.
As great minds have the faculty of saying a great deal in a few words, so lesser minds have a talent of talking much, and saying nothing.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
The rule of friendship means there should be mutual sympathy between them, each supplying what the other lacks and trying to benefit the other, always using friendly and sincere words.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
I have defeated this earthworm with my words. Imagine what I would have done with my fire breathing fists.
You don't have to be singing about love all the time in order to give love to the people. You don't have to keep flashing those words all the time.
Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves; vanity, to what we would have others think of us.
I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for.
All I'm writing is just what I feel, that's all. I just keep it almost naked. And probably the words are so bland.
In the silence of night I have often wished for just a few words of love from one man, rather than the applause of thousands of people.
The first thing which I can record concerning myself is, that I was born. These are wonderful words. This life, to which neither time nor eternity can bring diminution - this everlasting living soul, began. My mind loses itself in these depths.
Friendship needs no words - it is solitude delivered from the anguish of loneliness.
If you are young and you drink a great deal it will spoil your health, slow your mind, make you fat - in other words, turn you into an adult.
P. J. O'Rourke
I'm a woman of very few words, but lots of action.
I say there're no depressed words just depressed minds.
I believe in using words, not fists. I believe in my outrage knowing people are living in boxes on the street. I believe in honesty. I believe in a good time. I believe in good food. I believe in sex.
All my life I've looked at words as though I were seeing them for the first time.
How strangely will the Tools of a Tyrant pervert the plain Meaning of Words!
