Words
The hatred of the youth culture for adult society is not a disinterested judgment but a terror-ridden refusal to be hooked into the, if you will, ecological chain of breathing, growing, and dying. It is the demand, in other words, to remain children.

- Decter, Midge
Fire and swords are slow engines of destruction, compared to the tongue of a Gossip.

- Steele, Sir Richard
We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people.

- King Jr. Martin Luther
I think it is an immutable law in business that words are words, explanations are explanations, promises are promises -- but only performance is reality.

- Geneen, Harold S.
The first principle of a free society is an untrammeled flow of words in an open forum.

- Stevenson, Adlai E.
Whenever we are tempted to say more than is needful, let us remember St. John's words (in the only sermon we have on record of his), "Little children, love one another," and ask God for His Holy Spirit, the spirit of love, which, instead of weakening a man's words, makes them all the stronger in the cause of truth, because they are spoken in love.
How difficult it is to distinguish between the loving tact, which avoids giving offence to a weaker brother, and the fear of man, which bringeth a snare!

- MS. Letter. 1842.
The safest words are always those which bring us most directly to facts.

- Parkhurst, Charles H.
A new word is like a fresh seed sewn on the ground of the discussion.

- Wittgenstein, Ludwig
Words are the physicians of the mind diseased.

- Aeschylus
Words may show a man's wit but actions his meaning.

- Franklin, Benjamin
Words can sting like anything, but silence breaks the heart.

- Mcginley, Phyllis
The actor searches vainly for the sound of a vanished tradition, and critic and audience follow suit. We have lost all sense of ritual and ceremony -- whether it be connected with Christmas, birthdays or funerals -- but the words remain with us and old impulses stir in the marrow. We feel we should have rituals, we should do something about getting them and we blame the artists for not finding them for us. So the artist sometimes attempts to find new rituals with only his imagination as his source: he imitates the outer form of ceremonies, pagan or baroque, unfortunately adding his own trapping -- the result is rarely convincing. And after the years and years of weaker and waterier imitations we now find ourselves rejecting the very notion of a holy stage. It is not the fault of the holy that it has become a middle-class weapon to keep the children good.

- Brook, Peter (Stephen Paul)
A soft answer truth away wrath, but grievous words stir up anger. [Proverbs 15:1]

- Bible
Lively thoughts Give birth, full often, to unguarded words.

- William Wordsworth
Virtue and genuine graces in themselves speak what no words can utter.

- William Shakespeare
MIND, n. A mysterious form of matter secreted by the brain. Its chief activity consists in the endeavor to ascertain its own nature, the futility of the attempt being due to the fact that it has nothing but itself to know itself with. From the Latin _mens_, a fact unknown to that honest shoe-seller, who, observing that his learned competitor over the way had displayed the motto "_Mens conscia recti_," emblazoned his own front with the words "Men's, women's and children's conscia recti."

- Ambrose Bierce
His thoughts were slow. His words were few and never formed to glisten. But he was a joy to all his friends, you should have heard him LISTEN!

Just as a new scientific discovery manifests something that was already latent in the order of nature, and at the same time is logically related to the total structure of the existing science, so the new poem manifests something that was already latent in the order of words.

- Frye, Northrop
I haven't much opinion of words. They're apt to set fire to a dry tongue, that's what I say.

- Glasgow, Ellen
Words are all we have.

- Beckett, Samuel
