is the offspring
of two countries colliding
what is there to be ashamed of

and my mother tongue
made love

and mother's accent
what does it matter if
my mouth carries two worlds

Centelleo English quotes by Robert Greene
#3. The grammar of language locks us into certain forms of logic and ways of thinking. As the writer Sidney Hook put it, "When Aristotle drew up his table of categories which to him represented the grammar of existence, he was really projecting the grammar of the Greek language on the cosmos." Linguists have enumerated the high number of concepts that have no particular word to describe them in the English language. If there are no words for certain concepts, we tend to not think of them. #Quote by Robert Greene

Centelleo English quotes by Selena Kitt
#11. King Henry wants lands an'titles, like all the English."
"What do Scots want?" she asked, glancing over her shoulder. Darrow was far more sure footed than she was.
"A good woman, a warm bed, and food in their bellies." He grinned at her and she couldn't help but laugh. #Quote by Selena Kitt
Centelleo English quotes by Patrik Ouředník
#12. Some historians subsequently said that the twentieth century actually started in 1914, when war broke out, because it was first war in history in which so many countries took part, in which so many people died and in which airships and airplanes flew and bombarded the rear and towns and civilians, and submarines sunk ships and artillery could lob shells ten or twelve kilometers. And the Germans invented gas and the English invented tanks and scientists discovered isotopes and general theory of relativity, according to which nothing was metaphysical, but relative.And when Senegalese fusiliers first saw an airplane they thought it was a tame bird and one of the Senegalese soldiers cut a lump of flesh from a dead horse and threw it as far as he could in order to lure it away. And airships and airplanes flew through the sky and the horses were terribly frightened. And writers and poets endeavored to find new ways of expressing it best and in 1916 they invented Dadaism because everything seemed crazy to them. And in Russia they invented a revolution. And the soldiers wore around their neck or wrist a tag with their name and the number of their regiment to indicate who was who, and where to send a telegram of condolences, but if the explosion tore off their head or arm and the tag was lost, the military command would announce that they were unknown soldiers, and in most capital cities they instituted an eternal flame lest they be forgotten, because fire preserves the memory of some #Quote by Patrik Ouředník

Centelleo English quotes by Alexandre Dumas
#14. But he laughed as the English do at the end of his teeth. #Quote by Alexandre Dumas
Centelleo English quotes by Napoleon A. Chagnon
#15. It is appalling how complicated it can be to make oatmeal in the jungle. First, I had to make two trips to the river to haul the water, Next, I had to prime my kerosene stove with alcohol to get it burning, a tricky procedure when you are trying to mix powdered milk and fill a coffee pot at the same time. The alcohol prime always burned out before I could turn the kerosene on, and I would have to start all over. Or, I would turn the kerosene on, optimistically hoping that the Coleman element was still hot enough to vaporize the fuel, and start a small fire in my palm-thatched hut as the liquid kerosene squirted all over the table and walls and then ignited. Many amused Yanomamo onlookers quickly learned the English phrase "Oh, shit!" and, once they discovered that the phrase offended and irritated the missionaries, they used it as often as they could in their presence. #Quote by Napoleon A. Chagnon

#18. English football has just had a transfer window imposed for the first time, so it will be interesting to see how managers cope with the squads they have until it re-opens. #Quote by David Ginola
Centelleo English quotes by Sandra Cisneros
#19. In English, my name means hope. In Spanish, it means too many letters. It means sadness. It means waiting. It is like the number nine, a muddy color. #Quote by Sandra Cisneros
Centelleo English quotes by Martin Amis
#20. There isn't what my father called the cruising hostility of the English press - where they're looking around for something to attack. You don't feel that there's a great reservoir of resentment in the press as you do in England. #Quote by Martin Amis
Centelleo English quotes by Wendy Holden
#21. Along with every other male of his acquaintance he loathed the Naked Chef with messianic passion and prayed for the day he suffered a fatal accident on his scooter or burst into flames with the friction of sliding down that nauseating banister. Mark hated to think how rich he must be. And the fact that a mere bloody cook was taking up space in The Times that could be filled by a train journalist. Like himself, for example. Bastard. #Quote by Wendy Holden

To Sri Ram, whose beauty is incomparable, I am bowing,
His body like a newly formed dense blue cloud I am seeing,
His shining yellow robes over his body are like lightening,
He is the consort of Janak's daughter his beauty is gleaming. #Quote by Munindra Misra
Centelleo English quotes by James Hillman
#26. It helps to regard soul as an active intelligence, forming and plotting each person's fate. Translators use "plot" to render the ancient Greek word mythos in English. The plots that entangle our souls and draw forth our characters are the great myths. That is why we need a sense of myth and knowledge of different myths to gain insight into our epic struggles, our misalliances, and our tragedies. Myths show the imaginative structures inside our messes, and our human characters can locate themselves against the background of the characters of myth. #Quote by James Hillman
Centelleo English quotes by Agatha Christie
#27. I will not look through keyholes," I interrupted hotly. Poirot closed his eyes. "Very well, then. You will not look through keyholes. You will remain the English gentleman and someone will be killed. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Centelleo English quotes by George Edward Woodberry
#28. Who of English speech, bred to the traditions of his race, does not recognize Hamlet in his 'inky cloak' at a glance? Not to know him would argue one's self untaught in the chief glories of his language. #Quote by George Edward Woodberry
Centelleo English quotes by Albert J. Lubin
#29. It was a clear autumn day Sunday in 1876; Vincent van Gogh, twenty-three years old, left the English boarding school where he was teaching to give a sermon at a small Methodist church in Richmond, a humble London suburb. Standing in front of the lectern, he felt like a lost soul emerging from the dark cave in which he had been buried.

The sermon, which survives among Vincent's collected letters, reiterates universal ideas and is not an outstanding example of the art of homiletics. Nevertheless, his words grew out of his tormented life and had an intense emotional charge. Preaching to the congregation, he was also preaching to himself -- and of himself. The images he used were the same as those that were to be given powerful expression in his pictures.

The text chosen for the sermon was Psalm 119:19, 'I am a stranger on the earth, hide not Thy commandments from me.' #Quote by Albert J. Lubin
Centelleo English quotes by Samuel Beckett
#30. It is indeed becoming more and more difficult, even senseless, for me to write an official English. And more and more my own language appears to me like a veil that must be torn apart in order to get at the things (or the Nothingness) behind it. Grammar and style. To me they have become as irrelevant as a Victorian bathing suit or the imperturbability of a true gentleman. A mask. Let us hope the time will come, thank God that in certain circles it has already come, when language is most efficiently used where it is being most efficiently misused. As we cannot eliminate language all at once, we should at least leave nothing undone that might contribute to its falling into disrepute. To bore one hole after another in it, until what lurks behind it - be it something or nothing - begins to seep through; I cannot imagine a higher goal for a writer today. #Quote by Samuel Beckett
Centelleo English quotes by Ben Aaronovitch
#31. For a terrifying moment I thought he was going to hug me, but fortunately we both remembered we were English just in time. Still, it was a close call. #Quote by Ben Aaronovitch
Centelleo English quotes by H.G.Wells
#32. He has made the cat his own. He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. English cats that do not look and live like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Centelleo English quotes by Christian Lacroix
#33. I translated Beatles songs for my English class. #Quote by Christian Lacroix
Centelleo English quotes by Laura Fraser

Centelleo English quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#35. We, Brandy and Alfa and me, we've been speaking English as a second language so long that we've forgotten it as our first.
I have no native tongue. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Centelleo English quotes by Will Rogers
