Vocabulary Quotations

You stand with the least likely to succeed until success is succeeded by something more valuable: kinship. You stand with the belligerent, the surly and the badly behaved until bad behavior is recognized for the language it is: the vocabulary of the deeply wounded and of those whose burdens are more than they can bear.
Greg Boyle

The two most misused words in the entire English vocabulary are love and friendship. A true friend would die for you, so when you start trying to count them on one hand, you don't need any fingers.
Larry Flynt

One forgets words as one forgets names. One's vocabulary needs constant fertilizing or it will die.
Evelyn Waugh

Many parents and teachers have become irritated to the point of distraction at the way the weed-style growth of 'like' has spread through the idiom of the young.

Christopher Hitchens

If you're not ready to die for it, put the word 'freedom' out of your vocabulary.
Malcolm X
