When deeds speak, words are nothing.
Words are like leaves, and where they most abound, Much fruit of sense beneath is rarely found
Words spoken, you are a slave to; those not said, you are the master of.
But words once spoke can never be recalled
Don't accustom yourself to use big words for little matters
Of all the haunting moments of motherhood, few rank with hearing your own words come out of your daughter's mouth.
The logic of words should yield to the logic of realities.
Never talk defeat. Use words like hope, belief, faith, victory.
Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. I am haunted by waters
The field of combat was a long, narrow, green-baize covered table. The weapons were words
Our ability to perceive quality in nature begins, as in part, with the pretty. It expands through successive stages of the beautiful to values as yet uncaptured by language. The quality of cranes lies, I think, in this higher gamut, as yet beyond the reach of words.
There is a delight in the hardy life of the open. There are no words that can tell the hidden spirit of the wilderness that can reveal its mystery, its melancholy and its charm.

Conservation means development as much as it does protection.
Albert Einstein, who discovered that a tiny amount of mass is equal to a huge amount of energy, which explains why, as Einstein himself so eloquently put it in a famous 1939 speech to the Physics Department at Princeton, You have to exercise for a week to work off the thigh fat from a single Snickers.
We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day.

A politician's words reveal less about what he thinks about his subject than what he thinks about his audience.
In music, the punctuation is absolutely strict, the bars and rests are absolutely defined. But our punctuation cannot be quite strict, because we have to relate it to the audience. In other words we are continually changing the score.
In the silence of night I have often wished for just a few words of love from one man, rather than the applause of thousands of people.
Instead of explaining the sober facts of mechanics and electricity, I want to say a few words about the debt which we owe to youth; and with your permission I shall consider you as representing here not only the academic youth of Sweden nor even of Europe but also of America.
Comedy has to be done en clair. You can't blunt the edge of wit or the point of satire with obscurity. Try to imagine a famous witty saying that is not immediately clear.
I have been very happy, very rich, very beautiful much adulated, very famous and very unhappy
There is never finality in the display terminal's screen, but an irresponsible whimsicality, as words, sentences, and paragraphs are negated at the touch of a key. The significance of the past, as expressed in the manuscript by a deleted word or an inserted correction, is annulled in idle gusts of electronic massacre.
