Both the Moral Majority, who are recycling medieval language to explain AIDS, and those ultra-leftists who attribute AIDS to some sort of conspiracy, have a clearly political analysis of the epidemic. But even if one attributes its cause to a microorganism rather than the wrath of God, or the workings of the CIA, it is clear that the way in which AIDS has been perceived, conceptualized, imagined, researched and financed makes this the most political of diseases.

- Altman, Dennis
Metric is definitely communist. One monetary system, one language, one weight and measurement system, one world - all communist! We know the West was won by the inch, foot, yard, and mile.

- Dean Krakel
I do not call the sod under my feet my country; but language -- religion -- government -- blood -- identity in these makes men of one country.

- Coleridge, Samuel Taylor
Syntax and vocabulary are overwhelming constraints --the rules that run us. Language is using us to talk --we think we're using the language, but language is doing the thinking, we're its slavish agents.

- Mathews, Harry
When ideas fail, words come in very handy.

- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Money speaks sense in a language all nations understand.

- Behn, Aphra
A filthy mouth will not utter decent language.

- Chinese Proverb
Experience becomes possible because of language.

- Noam Chomsky
I've found that there are only two kinds that are any good: slang that has established itself in the language, and slang that you make up yourself. Everything else is apt to be pass? before it gets into print.

- Chandler, Raymond
Since music is a language with some meaning at least for the immense majority of mankind, although only a tiny minority of people are capable of formulating a meaning in it, and since it is the only language with the contradictory attributes of being at once intelligible and untranslatable, the musical creator is a being comparable to the gods, and music itself the supreme mystery of the science of man, a mystery that all the various disciplines come up against and which holds the key to their progress.

- Levi-Strauss, Claude
There is the fear, common to all English-only speakers, that the chief purpose of foreign languages is to make fun of us. Otherwise, you know, why not just come out and say it?

- Ehrenreich, Barbara
Iím not alone when Iím writing the language itself, like a kind of trampoline, is there helping me.

- Sir Edward William Stafford
Language is the source of misunderstandings.

- Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Remember that a person's name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language.

- Dale Carnegie
Language is a part of our organism and no less complicated than it.

- Wittgenstein, Ludwig
The problems of society will also be the problems of the predominant language of that society. It is the carrier of its perceptions, its attitudes, and its goals, for through it, the speakers absorb entrenched attitudes. The guilt of English then must be recognized and appreciated before its continued use can be advocated.

- Ndebele, Njabulo
Yes, we are all different. Different customs, different foods, different mannerisms, different languages, but not so different that we cannot get along with one another. If we will disagree without being disagreeable.

- Kohe, J. Martin
Language is the pedigree of nations.

- Johnson
To rescue from oblivion even a fragment of a language which men have used and which is in danger of being lost --that is to say, one of the elements, whether good or bad, which have shaped and complicated civilization --is to extend the scope of social observation and to serve civilization.

- Hugo, Victor
The eye of genius has always a plaintive expression, and its natural language is pathos.

- Child, Lydia M.
