Words
My God, my God, thou art a direct God, may I not say a literal God.. . [but also] a figurative, a metaphorical God too; a God in whose words there is such a height of figures, such voyages, such peregrinations to fetch remote and precious metaphors, such extensions, such spreadings, such curtains of allegories, such third heavens of hyperboles, so harmonious elocutions, so retired and so reserved expressions, so commanding persuasions, so persuading commandments, such sinews even in thy milk, and such things in thy words, as all profane authors seem of the seed of the serpent that creeps; thou art the dove that flies.

- John Donne
There is no surer way to misread any document than to read it literally. As nearly as we can, we must put ourselves in the place of those who uttered the words, and try to divine how they would have dealt with the unforeseen situation; and, evidence of what they would have done, they are by no means final.

- Learned Hand
Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul And sings the tune without the words And never stops at all. And sweetest in the gale is heard; And sore must be the storm That could abash the little bird That kept so many warm. I've heard it in the chilest land And on the strangest sea, Yet never in extremity It asked a crumb of me.

- Emily Dickenson
The chief virtue that language can have is clearness, and nothing detracts from it so much as the use of unfamiliar words.

- Hippocrates
The current flows fast and furious. It issues in a spate of words from the loudspeakers and the politicians. Every day they tell us that we are a free people fighting to defend freedom. That is the current that has whirled the young airman up into the sky and keeps him circulating there among the clouds. Down here, with a roof to cover us and a gas mask handy, it is our business to puncture gas bags and discover the seeds of truth.

- Woolf, Virginia
We all write poems. It is simply that poets are the ones who write in words.

- Fowles, John
Because I believe in a God of absolute and unbounded love, therefore I believe in a loving anger of His, which will and must devour and destroy all which is decayed, monstrous, abortive, in His universe, till all enemies shall be put under His feet, to be pardoned surely, if they confess themselves in the wrong and open their eyes to the truth. And God shall be All in All. Those last are wide words.

- Letters and Sermons. 1856.
Conceit, more rich in matter than in words, brags of his substance: they are but beggars who can count their worth.

- Shakespeare, William
An intellectual is a man who takes more words than necessary to tell more than he knows.

- Dwight D. Eisenhower
A word from the mouth is like a stone from a sling.

- Proverb, Spanish
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.

- Orwell, George
Grief fills the room up of my absent child, lies in his bed, walks up and down with me, puts on his pretty looks, repeats his words.

- Shakespeare, William
The Scripture vouches Solomon for the wisest of men; and his proverbs prove him so, The seven wise men of Greece, so famous for their wisdom all the world over, acquired all that fame each of them by a single sentence, consisting of two or three words.

- South
No one else can speak the words on your lips Drench yourself in words unspoken Live your life with arms wide open Today is where your book begins The rest is still unwritten

- Natasha Bedingfield
But words are things, and a small drop of ink, falling like dew, upon a thought, produces that which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.

- Byron, Lord
MONOSYLLABIC, adj. Composed of words of one syllable, for literary babes who never tire of testifying their delight in the vapid compound by appropriate googoogling. The words are commonly Saxon -- that is to say, words of a barbarous people destitute of ideas and incapable of any but the most elementary sentiments and emotions. The man who writes in Saxon Is the man to use an ax on Judibras

- Ambrose Bierce
A man who lives right, and is right, has more power in his silence than another has by his words.

- Brooks, Phillips
My words fly up, my thoughts remain below: Words without thoughts never to heaven go.

- William Shakespeare
The proper force of words lie not in the words themselves, but in their application.

- William Hazlitt
Every deed and every relationship is surrounded by an atmosphere of silence. Friendship needs no words -- it is solitude delivered from the anguish of loneliness.

- Hammarskjold, Dag
