words quotes

#81 Albert Einstein

The words or the language, as they are written or spoken, do not seem to play any role in my mechanism of thought. The psychical entities which seem to serve as elements in thoughts are certain signs and more or less clear images which can be "voluntarily" reproduced and combined. There is, of course, a certain connection between those elements and relevant logical concepts. It is also clear that the desire to arrive finally at logically connected concepts is the emotional basis of this rather vague play with the above-mentioned elements. . . . The above-mentioned elements are, in my case, of visual and some muscular type. Conventional words or other signs have to be sought for laboriously only in a secondary stage, when the mentioned associative play is sufficiently established and can be reproduced at will. .

Albert Einstein Quotes about words
#1262 Bertrand Russell

In a logically perfect language, there will be one word and no more for every simple object, and everything that is not simple will be expressed by a combination of words, by a combination derived, of course, from the words for the simple things that enter in, one word for each simple component. .

Bertrand Russell Quotes about words

Woody Allen Quotes about words
#3869 Francis Bacon

our Saviour ... not being like man, which knows man’s thoughts by his words, but knowing man’s thoughts immediately, He never answered their words, but their thoughts. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about words
#3896 Francis Bacon

There are also Idols formed by the intercourse and association of men with each other, which I call Idols of the Market Place, on account of the commerce and consort of men there. For it is by discourse that men associate, and words are imposed according to the apprehension of the vulgar. And therefore the ill and unfit choice of words wonderfully obstructs the understanding. Nor do the definitions or explanations wherewith in some things learned men are wont to guard and defend themselves, by any means set the matter right. But words plainly force and overrule the understanding, and throw all into confusion, and lead men away into numberless empty controversies and idle fancies. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about words
#4017 Francis Bacon

Discretion of speech, is more than eloquence; and to speak agreeably to him, with whom we deal, is more than to speak in good words, or in good order. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about words
#4378 Confucius

Earnest in practicing the ordinary virtues, and careful in speaking about them, if, in his practice, he has anything defective, the superior man dares not but exert himself; and if, in his words, he has any excess, he dares not allow himself such license. Thus his words have respect to his actions, and his actions have respect to his words; is it not just an entire sincerity which marks the superior man? .

Confucius Quotes about words
#4438 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Only the great generalizations survive. The sharp words of the Declaration of Independence, lampooned then and since as 'glittering generalities,' have turned out blazing ubiquities that will burn forever and ever. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about words
#6013 Robert H. Jackson

It is only the words of the bill that have presidential approval, where that approval is given. It is not to be supposed that in signing a bill the President endorses the whole Congressional Record. .

Robert H. Jackson Quotes about words
#6208 E. B. White

Americans are willing to go to enormous trouble and expense defending their principles with arms, very little trouble and expense advocating them with words. Temperamentally we are ready to die for certain principles (or, in the case of overripe adults, send youngsters to die), but we show little inclination to advertise the reasons for dying. .

E. B. White Quotes about words
#6665 Dan Quayle

Bobby Knight told me this: "There is nothing that a good defense—cannot beat a better offense." In other words a good offense wins. .

Dan Quayle Quotes about words
#6872 Adlai Stevenson

The first principle of a free society is an untrammeled flow of words in an open forum. .

Adlai Stevenson Quotes about words
#6943 Charles de Gaulle

France was built with swords. The fleur-de-lis, symbol of national unity, is only the image of a spear with three pikes. .

Charles de Gaulle Quotes about words
#7029 Albert Camus

All systems of morality are based on the idea that an action has consequences that legitimize or cancel it. A mind imbued with the absurd merely judges that those consequences must be considered calmly. It is ready to pay up. In other words, there may be responsible persons, but there are no guilty ones, in its opinion. At very most, such a mind will consent to use past experience as a basis for its future actions. .

Albert Camus Quotes about words

Albert Camus Quotes about words
#7115 Albert Camus

When the imagination sleeps, words are emptied of their meaning: a deaf population absent-mindedly registers the condemnation of a man ... there is no other solution but to speak out and show the obscenity hidden under the verbal cloak. .

Albert Camus Quotes about words
#7358 Leo Tolstoy

A commercial company enslaved a nation comprising two hundred millions. Tell this to a man free from superstition and he will fail to grasp what these words mean. .

Leo Tolstoy Quotes about words
#7487 P. J. O'Rourke

Emo Philips Quotes about words
#8145 H. L. Mencken

When I mount the scaffold at last these will be my farewell words to the sheriff: Say what you will against me when I am gone, but don’t forget to add, in common justice, that I was never converted to anything. .

H. L. Mencken Quotes about words
#8342 Richard Nixon

There can be no right to revolt in this society; no right to demonstrate outside the law, and, inwords, "no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law." In a civilized nation no man can excuse his crime against the person or property of another by claiming that he, too, has been a victim of injustice. To tolerate that is to invite anarchy .

Richard Nixon Quotes about words
#8685 Samuel Johnson

This is one of the disadvantages of wine, it makes a man mistake words for thoughts. .

Samuel Johnson Quotes about words
#9085 Robert Benchley

The English language may hold a more disagreeable combination of words than "The doctor will see you now." I am willing to concede something to the phrase "Have you anything to say before the current is turned on?" That may be worse for the moment, but it doesn't last so long. For continued, unmitigating depression, I know nothing to equal "The doctor will see you now." But I'm not narrow-minded about it. I'm willing to consider other possibilities. .

Robert Benchley Quotes about words
#9288 Niels Bohr

What is it that we humans depend on? We depend on our words... Our task is to communicate experience and ideas to others. We must strive continually to extend the scope of our description, but in such a way that our messages do not thereby lose their objective or unambiguous character ... We are suspended in language in such a way that we cannot say what is up and what is down. The word "" is also a word, a word which we must learn to use correctly. .

Niels Bohr Quotes about words
#9468 Nineteen Eighty Four

Don't you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it. Every concept that can ever be needed, will be expressed by exactly one word, with its meaning rigidly defined and all its subsidiary meanings rubbed out and forgotten. .

Nineteen Eighty Four Quotes about words
#10494 W. H. Auden

Base words are uttered only by the base And can for such at once be understood; But noble platitudes — ah, there's a case Where the most careful scrutiny is needed To tell a voice that's genuinely good From one that's base but merely has succeeded. .

W. H. Auden Quotes about words
#10842 George W. Bush

"We're going to get [Bin Laden] Dead or alive, it doesn't matter to me." 12/14/2001Bush's words elsewhere was that he is "determined" to capture Bin Laden dead or alive, and is confident about succeeding .

George W. Bush Quotes about words
#11192 Arthur C. Clarke

Meanwhile, among all its countless other effects upon human culture, Starglider had brought to its climax a process that was already well under way. It had put an end to the billions of the words of pious gibberish with which apparently intelligent men had addled their minds for centuries. .

Arthur C. Clarke Quotes about words
#11417 Isaac Asimov

You know that prudery is only the other side of prurience. The words are even on the same page in the dictionary. .

Isaac Asimov Quotes about words
#11629 Friedrich Nietzsche

Is it not clear that with all this we are bound to feel ill at ease in an age that likes to claim the distinction of being the most humane, the mildest, and the most righteous age that the sun has ever seen? It is bad enough that precisely when we hear these beautiful words we have the ugliest suspicions. What we find in them is merely an expression — and a masquerade — of a profound weakening, of weariness, of old age, of declining energies. What can it matter to us what tinsel the sick may use to cover up their weakness? Let them parade it as their virtue; after all, there is no doubt that weakness makes one mild, oh so mild, so righteous, so inoffensive, so "humane"! .

Friedrich Nietzsche Quotes about words
#11638 Friedrich Nietzsche

It is the stillest words that bring on the storm. Thoughts that come on doves' feet guide the world. .

Friedrich Nietzsche Quotes about words
#11695 Friedrich Nietzsche

We have already gone beyond whatever we have words for. In all talk there is a grain of contempt. .

Friedrich Nietzsche Quotes about words
#11871 Linus Torvalds

The thing that has always disturbed me about O_DIRECT is that the whole interface is just stupid, and was probably designed by a deranged monkey on some serious mind-controlling substances. [*] [*] In other words, it's an Oracleism. .

Linus Torvalds Quotes about words
#11972 Miguel Cervantes

Those two fatal words, Mine and Thine. .

Miguel Cervantes Quotes about words
#12186 Galileo Galilei

Nature … is inexorable and immutable; she never transgresses the laws imposed upon her, or cares a whit whether her abstruse reasons and methods of operation are understandable to men. For that reason it appears that nothing physical which sense–experience sets before our eyes, or which necessary demonstrations prove to us, ought to be called in question (much less condemned) upon the testimony of biblical passages which may have some different meaning beneath their words. For the Bible is not chained in every expression to conditions as strict as those which govern all physical effects; nor is God any less excellently revealed in Nature's actions than in the sacred statements of the Bible. .

Galileo Galilei Quotes about words
#12257 Terry Pratchett

Mind you, the Elizabethans had so many words for the female genitals that it is quite hard to speak a sentence of modern English without inadvertently mentioning at least three of them. .

Terry Pratchett Quotes about words
#12591 John Stuart Mill

Since , or inference, the principal subject of logic, is an operation which usually takes place by means of , and in complicated cases can take place in no other way: those who have not a thorough insight into both the signification and purpose of words, will be under chances, amounting almost to certainty, of reasoning or inferring incorrectly. .

John Stuart Mill Quotes about words
#12823 Richard Dawkins

The Roman Catholic doctrine of transubstantiation...claims...the "Whole substance" of the wine is converted into the blood of Christ,; the appearance of wine that remains is "merely accidental", "inhering in no substance". Transubstantiation is colloquially taught as meaning that the wine "literally" turns into the blood of Christ. Whether in its obfuscatory Aristotelian or its franker colloquial form, the claim of transubstantiation can be made only if we do serious violence to the normal meanings of words like 'substance' and 'literally'. .

Richard Dawkins Quotes about words
#13327 George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans)

It is well known to all experienced minds that our firmest convictions are often dependent on subtle impressions for which words are quite too coarse a medium. .

George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans) Quotes about words
#13532 T. S. Eliot

Let these words answer For what is done, not to be done again May the judgement not be too heavy upon us .

T. S. Eliot Quotes about words
#13563 T. S. Eliot

There came one who spoke of the shame of Jerusalem And the holy places defiled; Peter the Hermit, scourging with words.And among his hearers were a few good men, Many who were evil, And most who were neither, Like all men in all places. .

T. S. Eliot Quotes about words
#13660 T. S. Eliot

If we all were judged according to the consequences Of all our words and deeds, beyond the intention And beyond our limited understanding Of ourselves and others, we should all be condemned. .

Actions speak louder than words. .

English proverbs Quotes about words
#14290 Robert Frost
