Talk Quotes

What a thing it is to sit absolutely alone, in the forests, at night, cherished by this wonderful, unintelligible, perfectly innocent speech, the most comforting speech in the world, the talk that rain makes by itself all over the bridges, and the talk of the water courses everywhere in the hollows!Nobody started it, nobody is going to stop it. It will talk as long as it wants, this rain. As long as it talks I am going to listen.

Thomas Merton

The right merchant is one who has the just average of faculties we call common sense; a man of a strong affinity for facts, who makes up his decision on what he has seen. He is thoroughly persuaded of the truths of arithmetic. There is always a reason, in the man, for his good or bad fortune in making money. Men talk as if there were some magic about this. He knows that all goes on the old road, pound for pound, cent for cent / for every effect a perfect cause / and that good luck is another name for tenacity of purpose.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

I was happy but happy is an adult world. You don't have to ask a child about happy, you see it. They are or they are not Adults talk about being happy because largely they are not. Talking about it is the same as trying to catch the wind. Much easier to let it blow all over you. This is where I disagree with the philosophers. They talk about passionate things but there is no passion in them. Never talk happiness with a philosopher

Jeanette Winterson

Oliver Wendell Holmes

Genteel women suppose that those things do not really exist about which it is impossible to talk in polite company.

Friedrich Nietzsche

It has been said in praise of some men, that they could take whole hours together upon anything; but it must be owned to the honor of the other sex that there are many among them who can talk whole hours together upon nothing. I have known a woman branch out into a long extempore dissertation on the edging of a petticoat, and chide her servant for breaking a china cup, in all the figures of rhetoric.

Joseph Addison

Color is crucial in painting, but it is very hard to talk about. There is almost nothing you can say that holds up as a generalization, because it depends on too many factors: size, modulation, the rest of the field, a certain consistency that color has with forms, and the statement you're trying to make.

Roy Lichtenstein

Black women are the strongest most hardworking people on earth. The shit I talk on records about black women is just that: shit.

Dr. Dre

The royal road to a man's heart is to talk to him about the things he treasures most.

Dale Carnegie

Thinkers think and doers do. But until the thinkers do and the doers think, progress will be just another word in the already overburdened vocabulary of the talkers who talk.

Unknown

Talk about meeting your soul mate I truly feel I have been given that gift. And believe me, I wasnt some lightweight package. Im, like, the package that didnt just come with luggage I had trunks.

Demi Moore
