It is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to. . . . The feeling for the things themselves, for reality, is more important than the feeling for pictures.
Vincent Van Gogh quotes
Philosophy is written in that great book which ever lies before our eyes ... We cannot understand it if we do not first learn the language and grasp the symbols in which it is written. The book is written in the mathematical language ... without whose help it is humanly impossible to comprehend a single word of it, and without which one wanders in vain through a dark labyrinth.
Galileo Galilei quotes
The good writer, the great writer, has what I have called the three S's: the power to see, to sense, and to say. That is, he is perceptive, he is feeling, and he has the power to express in language what he observes and reacts to.
Lawrence Clark Powell quotes
Drawing on my fine command of the English language, I said nothing.
Robert Benchley quotes
A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.
William Arthur Ward quotes
The English have no respect for their language, and will not teach their children to speak it.
George Bernard Shaw quotes
The leader has to be practical and a realist, yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
Eric Hoffer quotes
Political language. . . is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.
George Orwell quotes
Man invented language to satisfy his deep need to complain.
Lily Tomlin quotes
Language is not only the vehicle of thought, it is a great and efficient instrument in thinking.
Humphrey Davy quotes
