The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of because words diminish your feelings - words shrink things that seem timeless when they are in your head to no more than living size when they are brought out.
Literature is the art of discovering something extraordinary about ordinary people, and saying with ordinary words something extraordinary.
A Christian reveals true humility by showing the gentleness of Christ, by being always ready to help others, by speaking kind words and performing unselfish acts, which elevate and ennoble the most sacred message that has come to our world.
Ellen G. White
In human intercourse the tragedy begins, not when there is misunderstanding about words, but when silence is not understood.
Henry David Thoreau

Philip K. Dick

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
A thousand words will not leave so deep an impression as one deed.
I have learned that there is more power in a good strong hug than in a thousand meaningful words.

Where words are restrained, the eyes often talk a great deal.
I cry very easily. It can be a movie, a phone conversation, a sunset - tears are words waiting to be written.
For all sad words of tongue and pen, The saddest are these, 'It might have been'.
John Greenleaf Whittier
Some people create with words or with music or with a brush and paints. I like to make something beautiful when I run. I like to make people stop and say, 'I've never seen anyone run like that before.' It's more than just a race, it's a style. It's doing something better than anyone else. It's being creative.
Leadership is practiced not so much in words as in attitude and in actions.
Harold S. Geneen

John F. Kennedy
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
