A picture is a poem without words.
How true Daddy's words were when he said: all children must look after their own upbringing. Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands.
Literature is the art of discovering something extraordinary about ordinary people, and saying with ordinary words something extraordinary.
Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
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.
It makes my heart sick when I remember all the good words and the broken promises.
Inspiration comes from so many sources. Music, other fiction, the non-fiction I read, TV shows, films, news reports, people I know, stories I hear, misheard words or lyrics, dreams... Motivation? The memory of the rush I get from a really good writing session - even on a bad day, I know I'll find that again if I keep going.
Leadership is practiced not so much in words as in attitude and in actions.
Harold S. Geneen
However much you knock at nature's door, she will never answer you in comprehensible words.
Words are but the signs of ideas.
Kind words do not cost much. Yet they accomplish much.
There is a time for many words, and there is also a time for sleep.
Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words.
Edgar Allan Poe
In human intercourse the tragedy begins, not when there is misunderstanding about words, but when silence is not understood.
Henry David Thoreau
You never know when a moment and a few sincere words can have an impact on a life.
Doing Good is a simple and universal vision. A vision to which each and every one of us can connect and contribute to its realisation. A vision based on the belief that by doing good deeds, positive thinking and affirmative choice of words, feelings and actions, we can enhance goodness in the world.
Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with deeper meaning.
The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
I think one's feelings waste themselves in words; they ought all to be distilled into actions which bring results.
The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one's real and one's declared aims, one turns, as it were, instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish squirting out ink.
Good words cool more than cold water.
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.
It makes little difference how many university courses or degrees a person may own. If he cannot use words to move an idea from one point to another, his education is incomplete.
The water in a vessel is sparkling; the water in the sea is dark. The small truth has words which are clear; the great truth has great silence.
For all sad words of tongue and pen, The saddest are these, 'It might have been'.
John Greenleaf Whittier
John F. Kennedy
