Words
I heard the bells on Christmas Day. Their old familiar carols play. And wild and sweet the words repeat. Of peace on earth goodwill to men.

- Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
INCOMPOSSIBLE, adj. Unable to exist if something else exists. Two things are incompossible when the world of being has scope enough for one of them, but not enough for both -- as Walt Whitman's poetry and God's mercy to man. Incompossibility, it will be seen, is only incompatibility let loose. Instead of such low language as "Go heel yourself -- I mean to kill you on sight," the words, "Sir, we are incompossible," would convey and equally significant intimation and in stately courtesy are altogether superior.

- Ambrose Bierce
Action speaks louder than words but not nearly as often

Public opinion contains all kinds of falsity and truth, but it takes a great man to find the truth in it. The great man of the age is the one who can put into words the will of his age, tell his age what its will is, and accomplish it. What he does is the heart and the essence of his age, he actualizes his age. The man who lacks sense enough to despise public opinion expressed in gossip will never do anything great.

- Hegel, Georg
Speak to me as to thy thinkings, As thou dost ruminate, and give thy worst of thoughts The worst of words.

- William Shakespeare
REPORTER, n. A writer who guesses his way to the truth and dispels it with a tempest of words. "More dear than all my bosom knows, O thou Whose'lips are sealed'and will not disavow!" So sang the blithe reporter-man as grew Beneath his hand the leg-long "interview." Barson Maith

- Ambrose Bierce
We have no words for speaking of wisdom to the stupid. He who understands the wise is wise already.

- Lichtenberg, Georg C.
Hardly a book of human worth, be it heaven's own secret, is honestly placed before the reader; it is either shunned, given a Periclean funeral oration in a hundred and fifty words, or interred in the potter's field of the newspapers back pages.

- Dahlberg, Edward
Detail makes the difference between boring and terrific writing. ItĘs the difference between a pencil sketch and a lush oil painting. As a writer, words are your paint. Use all the colors.

- Rhys Alexander
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.

- Nathaniel Hawthorne
Is there not an art, a music, and a stream of words that shalt be life, the acknowledged voice of life?

- Wordsworth, William
The whole problem can be stated quite simply by asking,'Is there a meaning to music?'My answer would be,'Yes.'And'Can you state in so many words what the meaning is?'My answer to that would be,'No.'

- Aaron Copland
A translation is no translation unless it will give you the music of a poem along with the words of it.

- John Millington Synge
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.

- Steve Prefontaine
Be generous with kindly words, especially about those who are absent.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
All human wisdom is summed up in two words; wait and hope.

- Dumas, Alexandre
Man is a creature who lives not upon bread alone, but principally by catch words.

- Stevenson, Robert Louis
And they shall beat their swords into plough-shares, and their spears into pruning-hooks.

- Bible
Lying increases the creative faculties, expands the ego, lessens the friction of social contacts. It is only in lies, wholeheartedly and bravely told, that human nature attains through words and speech the forbearance, the nobility, the romance, the idealism, that -- being what it is -- it falls so short of in fact and in deed.

- Luce, Clare Boothe
Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.

- Rudyard Kipling
