Oscar Wilde Quotes about language
#1529 Oscar Wilde

There is no mode of action, no form of emotion, that we do not share with the lower animals. It is only by language that we rise above them, or above each other—by language, which is the parent, and not the child, of thought. .

Oscar Wilde Quotes about language

Ideas do not exist separately from language. .

Karl Marx Quotes about language
#6073 Pierre Trudeau

Bilingualism is not an imposition on the citizens. The citizens can go on speaking one language or six languages, or no languages if they so choose. Bilingualism is an imposition on the state and not the citizens. .

#9206 Edsger W. Dijkstra

About the use of language: it is impossible to sharpen a pencil with a blunt axe. It is equally vain to try to do it with ten blunt axes instead. .

Edsger W. Dijkstra Quotes about language
#10230 Buckminster Fuller

Synergy is the only word in our language which identifies the meaning for which it stands. Since the word is unknown to the average public, as I have already pointed out, it is not at all surprising that synergy has not been included in the economic accounting of our wealth transactions or in assessing our common wealth capabilities. .

Buckminster Fuller Quotes about language

#11854 Linus Torvalds

is a horrible language. It's made more horrible by the fact that a lot of substandard programmers use it, to the point where it's much much easier to generate total and utter crap with it. .

Linus Torvalds Quotes about language
#12169 Galileo Galilei

Philosophy is written in that great book which ever lies before our eyes — I mean the universe — but we cannot understand it if we do not first learn the language and grasp the symbols, in which it is written. This book is written in the mathematical language, and the symbols are triangles, circles and other geometrical figures, without whose help it is impossible to comprehend a single word of it; without which one wanders in vain through a dark labyrinth. .

Galileo Galilei Quotes about language
#12520 Dorothy Parker

That woman speaks eighteen languages, and can't say No in any of them. .

Dorothy Parker Quotes about language
#12799 Richard Dawkins

I think it is not helpful to apply Darwinian language too widely. Conquest of nation by nation is too distant for Darwinian explanations to be helpful. Darwinism is the differential survival of self-replicating genes in a gene pool, usually as manifested by individual behaviour, morphology, and phenotypes. Group selection of any kind is not Darwinism as Darwin understood it nor as I understand it. There is a very vague analogy between group selection and conquest of a nation by another nation, but I don't think it's a very helpful analogy. So I would prefer not to invoke Darwinian language for that kind of historical interpretation. .

Richard Dawkins Quotes about language
#14386 Victor Hugo

The miserable's name is Man; he is agonizing in all climes, and he is groaning in all languages. .

Victor Hugo Quotes about language
#15929 Ludwig Wittgenstein

For remember that in general we don't use language according to strict rules — it hasn't been taught us by means of strict rules, either. .

Ludwig Wittgenstein Quotes about language
#15931 Ludwig Wittgenstein

But ordinary language is all right. .

Ludwig Wittgenstein Quotes about language
#15945 Ludwig Wittgenstein

We must plow through the whole of language. .

Ludwig Wittgenstein Quotes about language
#15948 Ludwig Wittgenstein

An entire mythology is stored within our language. .

Ludwig Wittgenstein Quotes about language
#15960 Ludwig Wittgenstein

For a large class of cases — though not for all — in which we employ the word meaning it can be explained thus: the meaning of a word is its use in the language. .

Ludwig Wittgenstein Quotes about language
#15964 Ludwig Wittgenstein

What we are destroying is nothing but houses of cards and we are clearing up the ground of language on which they stood. .

Ludwig Wittgenstein Quotes about language
#15966 Ludwig Wittgenstein

Philosophy may in no way interfere with the actual use of language; it can in the end only describe it. .

Ludwig Wittgenstein Quotes about language
#17660 Thomas Carlyle

Sarcasm I now see to be, in general, the language of the Devil; for which reason I have, long since, as good as renounced it. .

Thomas Carlyle Quotes about language
#20563 George Orwell

Ifcorrupts , language can also corrupt thought. .

George Orwell Quotes about language
#23308 Charles Baudelaire

There is in a word, in a verb, something sacred which forbids us from using it recklessly. To handle a language cunningly is to practice a kind of evocative sorcery. .

Charles Baudelaire Quotes about language
#23537 Jorge Luis Borges

The impossibility of penetrating the divine pattern of the universe cannot stop us from planning human patterns, even though we are conscious they are not definitive. The analytic language of Wilkins is not the least admirable of such patterns. .
