Quote of the Day
On our watch, the conversation with a would-be suicide bomber will not begin with the words, 'You have the right to remain silent.'
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.
Be sure your wisest words are those you do not say.
Robert W. Service
I cry very easily. It can be a movie, a phone conversation, a sunset - tears are words waiting to be written.
It makes my heart sick when I remember all the good words and the broken promises.
Words, words, words! They shut one off from the universe. Three quarters of the time one's never in contact with things, only with the beastly words that stand for them.
Duty, Honor, Country. Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be.
Words can never adequately convey the incredible impact of our attitudes toward life. The longer I live the more convinced I become that life is 10 percent what happens to us and 90 percent how we respond to it.
Charles R. Swindoll
The words spoken by the leader of the free world can expand the frontiers of freedom or shrink them. When Ronald Reagan called on Gorbachev to 'tear down this wall,' a surge of confidence rose that would ultimately breach the bounds of the evil empire.
The essence of lying is in deception, not in words.
The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words.
Philip K. Dick
Those who have the strength and the love to sit with a dying patient in the silence that goes beyond words will know that this moment is neither frightening nor painful, but a peaceful cessation of the functioning of the body.
In other words, a democratic government is the only one in which those who vote for a tax can escape the obligation to pay it.
Alexis de Tocqueville
Words - so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.
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
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.
Silence is more eloquent than words.
Some guy hit my fender, and I told him, 'Be fruitful and multiply,' but not in those words.
The game of life is a game of boomerangs. Our thoughts, deeds and words return to us sooner or later with astounding accuracy.
Florence Scovel Shinn
You will reciprocally promise love, loyalty and matrimonial honesty. We only want for you this day that these words constitute the principle of your entire life and that with the help of divine grace you will observe these solemn vows that today, before God, you formulate.
Pope John Paul II
When we speak we are afraid our words will not be heard or welcomed. But when we are silent, we are still afraid. So it is better to speak.
Words are loaded pistols.
Guard your roving thoughts with a jealous care, for speech is but the dialer of thoughts, and every fool can plainly read in your words what is the hour of your thoughts.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
It is easy to say how we love new friends, and what we think of them, but words can never trace out all the fibers that knit us to the old.
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.
When old people speak it is not because of the sweetness of words in our mouths; it is because we see something which you do not see.
Words, like nature, half reveal and half conceal the soul within.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
One of the disadvantages of wine is that it makes a man mistake words for thoughts.
Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.
If you talk bad about country music, it's like saying bad things about my momma. Them's fightin' words.
