Tongue Quotes

The tongue that belongs to a fake friend is sharper than a knife.

Argentine proverb

I look at you, you bite your tongue. You don’t know why or where I’m coming from. But in my head I’m close to you, we’re in the rain still searching for the sun. You think that I want to run and hide, that I keep it all locked up inside, but I just want you to find me. I’m not lost, just undiscovered. You see the look that’s on my face. You might think I’m out of place. I’m not running, I’m not hiding. But if you dig a little deeper, you will FIND ME.

James Morrison

John Heywood

Mark Twain

It sloweth age, it strengtheneth youth, it helpeth digestion, it abandoneth melancholie, it relisheth the heart, it lighteneth the mind, it quickenth the spirits, it keepeth and preserveth the head from whirling, the eyes from dazzling, the tongue from lisping, the mouth from snaffling, the teeth from chattering and the throat from rattling; it keepeth the stomach from wambling, the heart from swelling, the hands from shivering, the sinews from shrinking, the veins from crumbling, the bones from aching,and the marrow from soaking.

Robert Noecker

I am the only being whose doom No tongue would ask no eye would mourn I never caused a thought of gloom A smile of joy since I was born In secret pleasure secret tears This changeful life has slipped away As friendless after eighteen years As lone as on my natal day

Emily Jane Bront

The deeper the sorrow the less tongue it hath.

The Talmud

Let me be cruel, not unnatural; I will speak daggers to her, but use none. My tongue and soul in this be hypocrites: How in my words somever she be shent, To give them seals never, my soul, consent!

William Shakespeare

Let me be cruel, not unnatural; I will speak daggers to her, but use none. My tongue and soul in this be hypocrites: How in my words somever she be shent, To give them seals never, my soul, consent
