The Internet lets women use words, which is their natural tool. Little girls speak in more complex, grammatical sentences than little boys do, and women never lose that superiority in verbal ability.
I used to want the words 'She tried' on my tombstone. Now I want 'She did it.'
Most honorable are services rendered to the State; even if they do not go beyond words, they are not to be despised.
Value your words. Each one may be the last.
Stanislaw Jerzy Lec
Sacred play is anything that takes you into that right hemisphere of your brain. It turns out that this move away from left to the right hemisphere, that sense of expansiveness and everything, can be accomplished through unusual rhythmic action, or any action that requires so much attention away from words that you cannot think in words.
I can't just say the words, do a lot of one-liners. I love each person I play; I have to be that person. I have to do him true.
People do not want words - they want the sound of battle - the battle of destiny.
Gamal Abdel Nasser
Words really flattering are not those which we prepare but those which escape us unthinkingly.
Ninon de L'Enclos
Who would name their kid Jack with the last words 'off' at the end of the last name? No wonder that guy is screwed up.
It takes about four days of virtuous living to create a little weight loss. That also happens to be the time required to get used to eating less. In other words, if you can get past day three of a fitness regimen, things improve.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez is one of my all-time favorite writers. I feel spiritual when reading his words, even though they're translated. I wish desperately that I could read it in its original language. I already feel like I'm going to church when I read him; imagine if I could read it in the original.
If we divine a discrepancy between a man's words and his character, the whole impression of him becomes broken and painful; he revolts the imagination by his lack of unity, and even the good in him is hardly accepted.
Charles Horton Cooley
It is the nurse that the child first hears, and her words that he will first attempt to imitate.
What words say does not last. The words last. Because words are always the same, and what they say is never the same.
Of course I was bullied and of course I was called names - my last name is Weir. That's very, very close to 'weird,' or 'queer' and any of those words. But I've never been anyone to cry over spilled milk or be upset because kids don't like me, or people don't like me... It makes my skin stronger and thicker. And why cry? Your mascara runs.
I believe in leavening. You can't have words sticking out too much, like promontories. They disturb the density. You have to flatten them, or raise the surrounding terrain.
The uncut diaries are 16 million words. It's very tiring to do your diary every night before you go to bed.
When Americans think of college these days, the first word that often comes to mind is 'debt.' And from 'debt' it's just a short hop to other unpleasant words, like 'payola,' 'kickback,' and 'bribery.'
I want three words: Woman, Atheist, Anarchist. That's me.
Madalyn Murray O'Hair
We know, in other words, the general conditions in which what we call, somewhat misleadingly, an equilibrium will establish itself: but we never know what the particular prices or wages are which would exist if the market were to bring about such an equilibrium.
Friedrich August von Hayek
I walked into this industry blond with red lips, and I will leave this industry blond with red lips. Mark my words.
In other words, I wouldn't like to be an actor if I could only be real. I like to get wild, behaviorally wild, and it's crazy to think of any form where it's just one way.
Words are potent weapons for all causes, good or bad.
The only players I hurt with my words are the ones who have an inflated opinion of their ability. I can't worry about that.
To be political means to speak out, to risk being called 'catty', or worse. I don't hear men worrying about whether they may be right or not. They enjoy the fight, whether it is with words or fists. Women still tend to shy away from controversy, to be uncomfortable with competition.
Madeleine M. Kunin
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
