- Parker, Dorothy
During my three years in Vietnam, I certainly heard plenty of last words by dying American footsoldiers. Not one of them, however, had illusions that he had somehow accomplished something worthwhile in the process of making the Supreme Sacrifice.

- Kurt Vonnegut
Certain is it that there is no kind of affection so purely angelic as of a father to a daughter. In love to our wives there is desire; to our sons, ambition; but to our daughters there is something which there are no words to express.

- Addison, Joseph
LOGOMACHY, n. A war in which the weapons are words and the wounds punctures in the swim-bladder of self-esteem -- a kind of contest in which, the vanquished being unconscious of defeat, the victor is denied the reward of success. 'Tis said by divers of the scholar-men That poor Salmasius died of Milton's pen. Alas! we cannot know if this is true, For reading Milton's wit we perish too.

- Ambrose Bierce
Straightforward words Seem paradoxical.

- Laozi
In love there are things --- bodies and words.

- Joyce Carol Oates
The finest words in the world are only vain sounds if you cannot understand them.

- Anatole France
The safest words are always those which bring us most directly to facts.

Good authors, too, who once knew better words now only use four-letter words writing prose... anything goes.

- Porter, Cole
SOPHISTRY, n. The controversial method of an opponent, distinguished from one's own by superior insincerity and fooling. This method is that of the later Sophists, a Grecian sect of philosophers who began by teaching wisdom, prudence, science, art and, in brief, whatever men ought to know, but lost themselves in a maze of quibbles and a fog of words. His bad opponent's "facts" he sweeps away, And drags his sophistry to light of day; Then swears they're pushed to madness who resort To falsehood of so desperate a sort. Not so; like sods upon a dead man's breast, He lies most lightly who the least is pressed. Polydore Smith

- Ambrose Bierce
A world of facts lies outside and beyond the world of words.

- Huxley, Thomas H.
By words the mind is winged.

- Aristophanes
The deeper the experience of an absence of meaning -- in other words, of absurdity --the more energetically meaning is sought.

It is better wither to be silent, or to say things of more value than silence. Sooner throw a pearl at hazard than an idle or useless word; and do not say a little in many words, but a great deal in a few.

- Pythagoras
Fine words and an insinuating appearance are seldom associated with true virtue.

- Confucius
Be simple in words, manners, and gestures. Amuse as well as instruct. If you can make a man laugh, you can make him think and make him like and believe you.

- Smith, Alfred E.
Is there not an art, a music, and a stream of words that shalt be life, the acknowledged voice of life?

- Wordsworth, William
Bu is a word that cools many a warm impulse, stifles many a kindly thought, puts a dead stop to many a brotherly deed. No one would ever love his neighbor as himself if he listened to all the Buts that could be said.

- Bulwer-Lytton, Edward G.
