Truthful words are not beautiful; beautiful words are not truthful. Good words are not persuasive; persuasive words are not good.
I would define, in brief, the poetry of words as the rhythmical creation of Beauty.
Edgar Allan Poe
There will soon come an armed contest between capital and labor. They will oppose each other, not with words and arguments, but with shot and shell, gun-powder and cannon. The better classes are tired of the insane howling of the lower strata and they mean to stop them.
William Tecumseh Sherman
Words, especially when yelled in anger, can be very damaging to a child's self-confidence. The child probably already feels bad enough just from seeing the consequences of his or her behavior. Our sons and daughters don't need more guilt and self-doubt heaped upon their already wounded egos.
Good words cool more than cold water.
Most people think that shadows follow, precede or surround beings or objects. The truth is that they also surround words, ideas, desires, deeds, impulses and memories.
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.
Completeness? Happiness? These words don't come close to describing my emotions. There truly is nothing I can say to capture what motherhood means to me, particularly given my medical history.
When you put something out there into the world, there's all these words you don't want to hear, that you hope people don't say. I don't like anything that starts with 're' - like retro, reinvent, recreate - I hate that. It's always like living in the past - copying, emulating.
He who does not understand your silence will probably not understand your words.
You can change your world by changing your words... Remember, death and life are in the power of the tongue.
I see dance being used as communication between body and soul, to express what it too deep to find for words.
Ruth St. Denis
For all sad words of tongue and pen, The saddest are these, 'It might have been'.
John Greenleaf Whittier
The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls and tenements halls and whispered in the sounds of silence.
The Blues are the true facts of life expressed in words and song, inspiration, feeling, and understanding.
We can speak without voice to the trees and the clouds and the waves of the sea. Without words they respond through the rustling of leaves and the moving of clouds and the murmuring of the sea.
We cannot learn from one another until we stop shouting at one another - until we speak quietly enough so that our words can be heard as well as our voices.
Richard M. Nixon
Talking isn't doing. It is a kind of good deed to say well; and yet words are not deeds.
So when you are listening to somebody, completely, attentively, then you are listening not only to the words, but also to the feeling of what is being conveyed, to the whole of it, not part of it.
Nothing else can quite substitute for a few well-chosen, well-timed, sincere words of praise. They're absolutely free and worth a fortune.
The modern artist... is working and expressing an inner world - in other words - expressing the energy, the motion, and other inner forces.
Music expresses what cannot be put into words I like to think, and I think the band makes a good go at it.
We have as many planes of speech as does a painting planes of perspective which create perspective in a phrase. The most important word stands out most vividly defined in the very foreground of the sound plane. Less important words create a series of deeper planes.
A woman has two smiles that an angel might envy, the smile that accepts a lover before words are uttered, and the smile that lights on the first born babe, and assures it of a mother's love.
Thomas Chandler Haliburton
One of the main tasks of theology is to find words that do not divide but unite, that do not create conflict but unity, that do not hurt but heal.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
