Lover Of Words quotes by Jennifer Hillman
#1. I am lover of words ... I am wickedly drunk with the magic of words ... the poetic nature whispers through and to my very heart and soul. #Quote by Jennifer Hillman
Lover Of Words quotes by Alethea Kontis
#2. Sharon Shinn is a lover of words and a builder of worlds. She makes science-fiction seem like fantasy. Her characters jump off the page, finding their way under your skin and into your heart. #Quote by Alethea Kontis
Lover Of Words quotes by C.E. Montague
#3. Each word's evocative value or virtue, its individual power of touching springs in the mind and of initiating visions, becomes a treasure to revel in. Besides this hold on affection a word may well have about it the glamorous prestige of high adventures in great company. Think of that the plain word "dust" calls to mind. "Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was." "Dust hath closed Helen's eye." "All follow this and come to dust." "The way to dusty death." So, to the lover of words, each word may be not a precious stone only, but one that has shone on Solomon's temple or in Cleopatra's hair. #Quote by C.E. Montague
Lover Of Words quotes by Charles Johnson
#4. What a lover of words and their beauty discovers. . .is that there is literally a word for every object, material or immaterial, every relation, and every process that human beings have experienced. Because that is what words are: the crystallization in language of thousands of years of experience across numerous cultures and civilizations, each word being the most tangible flesh in which thought is tabernacled. #Quote by Charles Johnson
Lover Of Words quotes by Ashley Rice
#5. You are a lover of words, one day you will write a book

People turn to you, because you give voice to dreams,notice little things and make otherwise impossible imaginings appear real. You are a rare bird who thinks the world is beautiful enough to try to figure it out. Who has the courage to dive into your wild mind and go swimming there.
You are someone who still believe in cloud watching, people watching, daydreaming, tomorrow, favorite colors, silver cloud, dandelions and sorrow.Be sacred. Be cool. Words do more than plant miracle seeds. With you writing them they can change the world. #Quote by Ashley Rice
Lover Of Words quotes by Frances Hardinge
#6. This was thieves' cant. Mosca was a lover of words, and she had a sneaking liking for the grimy panache of cant, and those who wore it like a ragged red cloak. #Quote by Frances Hardinge
Lover Of Words quotes by Wordions
#7. I am a lover of words.
If your words don't play with me,
nothing else in you will. #Quote by Wordions
Lover Of Words quotes by Augustine Of Hippo
#8. At one time in my infancy I also knew no Latin, and yet by listening I learnt it with no fear or pain at all, from my nurses caressing me, from people laughing over jokes, and from those who played games and were enjoying them. I learnt Latin without the threat of punishment from anyone forcing me to learn it. My own heart constrained me to bring its concepts to birth, which I could not have done unless I had learnt some words, not from formal teaching but by listening to people talking; and they in turn were the audience for my thoughts. This experience sufficiently illuminates the truth that free curiosity has greater power to stimulate learning than rigorous coercion. #Quote by Augustine Of Hippo
Lover Of Words quotes by R.J. Palacio
#9. We should be remembered for the things we do. The things we do are the most important things of all. They are more important than what we say or what we look like. The things we do outlast our mortality. The things we do are like monuments that people build to honour heroes after they've died. They're like the pyramids that the Egyptians built to honour the Pharaohs. Only instead of being made out of stone, they're made out of the memories people have of you. That's why your deeds are like your monuments. Built with memories instead of with stone. #Quote by R.J. Palacio
Lover Of Words quotes by Herb Kohl
#10. Judicial excellence means that a Supreme Court justice must have a sense of the values from which our core of our political- economic system goes. In other words, we should not approve any nominee whose extreme judicial philosophy would undermine rights and liberties relied upon by all Americans. #Quote by Herb Kohl
Lover Of Words quotes by Cornelia Funke
#11. Which of us has not felt that the character we are reading in the printed page is more real than the person standing beside us? #Quote by Cornelia Funke
Lover Of Words quotes by Viet Thanh Nguyen
#12. What had I intuited at last? Namely this: while nothing is more precious than independence and freedom, nothing is also more precious than independence and freedom! These two slogans are almost the same, but not quite. The first inspiring slogan was Ho Chi Min's empty suit, which he no longer wore. How could he? He was dead. The second slogan was the tricky one, the joke. It was Uncle Ho's empty suit turned inside out, a sartorial sensation that only a man of two minds, or a man with no face, dared to wear. This odd suit suited me, for it was of a cutting-edge cut. Wearing this inside-out suit, my seams exposed in an unseemly way, I understood, at last, how our revolution had gone from being the vanguard of political change to the rearguard hoarding power. In this transformation, we were not unusual. Hadn't the French and the Americans done exactly the same? Once revolutionaries themselves, they had become imperialists, colonizing and occupying our defiant little land, taking away our freedom in the name of saving us. Our revolution took considerably longer than theirs, and was considerably bloodier, but we made up for lost time. When it came to learning the worst habits of our French masters and their American replacements, we quickly proved ourselves the best. We, too, could abuse grand ideals! Having liberated ourselves in the name of independence and freedom - I was so tired of saying these words! - we then deprived our defeated brethren of the same. #Quote by Viet Thanh Nguyen
Lover Of Words quotes by Mitch Albom
#14. I dropped my eyes, kneading the dying flesh of his feet between my fingers. For a moment, I felt afraid, as if accepting his words would somehow betray my own father. But when I looked up, I saw Morrie smiling through tears and I knew there was no betrayal in a moment like this. All #Quote by Mitch Albom
Lover Of Words quotes by Jason Calacanis
#15. Journalists have misquoted people for so long - and quoted them out of context that for many people like to have their words on record. #Quote by Jason Calacanis
Lover Of Words quotes by Pema Chodron
#16. There's a reason you can learn from everything: you have basic wisdom, basic intelligence, and basic goodness. #Quote by Pema Chodron
Lover Of Words quotes by Pope John Paul II
#17. You will reciprocally promise love, loyalty and matrimonial honesty. We only want for you this day that these words constitute the principle of your entire life and that with the help of divine grace you will observe these solemn vows that today, before God, you formulate. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Lover Of Words quotes by Richard Ford
#18. Plenty of times I've seen writers, famous novelists and essayists, even poets, with names you'd recognize and whose work I admire, drift through these offices on one high-priced assignment or other. I have seen the anxious, weaselly lonely looks in their eyes, seen them sit at the desk we give them in a far cubicle, put their feet up and start at once to talk in loud, jokey, bluff, inviting voices, trying like everything to feel like members of the staff, holding court, acting like good guys, ready to give advice or offer opinions on anything anybody wants to know. In other words, having the time of their lives.
And who could blame them? Writers - all writers - need to belong. Only for real writers, unfortunately, their club is a club with just one member. #Quote by Richard Ford
Lover Of Words quotes by Max Brooks
#19. In October of 1973, when the Arab sneak attack almost drove us into the Mediterranean, we had all the intelligence in front of us, all the warning signs, and we had simply "dropped the ball." We never considered the possibility of an all-out, coordinated, conventional assault from several nations, certainly not on our holiest of holidays. Call it stagnation, call it rigidity, call it an unforgivable herd mentality. Imagine a group of people all staring at writing on a wall, everyone congratulating one another on reading the words correctly. But behind that group is a mirror whose image shows the writing's true message. No one looks at the mirror. No one thinks it's necessary. Well, after almost allowing the Arabs to finish what Hitler started, we realized that not only was that mirror image necessary, but it must forever be our national policy. From 1973 onward, if nine intelligence analysts came to the same conclusion, it was the duty of the tenth to disagree. No matter how unlikely or far-fetched a possibility might be, one must always dig deeper. If a neighbor's nuclear power plant might be used to make weapons-grade plutonium, you dig; if a dictator was rumored to be building a cannon so big it could fire anthrax shells across whole countries, you dig; and if there was even the slightest chance that dead bodies were being reanimated as ravenous killing machines, you dig and dig until you stike the absolute truth. #Quote by Max Brooks
Lover Of Words quotes by John Fowles
#20. Why should I struggle through hundreds of pages of fabrication to reach half a dozen very little truths?'
'For fun?'
'Fun!' He pounced on the word. 'Words are for truth. For facts. Not fiction. #Quote by John Fowles
Lover Of Words quotes by Al Franken
#21. If you want a free email service that doesn't use your words to target ads to you, you'll have to figure out how to port years and years of Gmail messages somewhere else, which is about as easy as developing your own free email service. #Quote by Al Franken
Lover Of Words quotes by Astrid Arditi
#22. If I ever needed to pick a place to hide, I would seek refuge inside a book. There's something about the musty smell emanating from the yellowed pages and the perfect alignment of printed words that appeases me. It is orderly, in massive contrast with my out-of-control life. #Quote by Astrid Arditi
Lover Of Words quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#23. For me, language is a freedom. As soon as you have found the words with which to express something, you are no longer incoherent, you are no longer trapped by your own emotions, by your own experiences; you can describe them, you can tell them, you can bring them out of yourself and give them to somebody else. That is an enormously liberating experience ... #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Lover Of Words quotes by Paul Auster
#24. Everything had changed for me, and words that I had never understood before suddenly began to make sense. This came as revelation, and when I finally had time to absorb it, I wondered how I had managed to live so long without learning this simple thing. I am not talking about desire so much as knowledge, the discovery that two people, through desire, can create a thing more powerful than either of them can create alone. #Quote by Paul Auster
Lover Of Words quotes by Hermann Hesse
#25. I am a star in the firmament
that observe the world, despises the world
and consumed in its heat.
I am the sea by night in a storm
the sea shouting that accumulates new sins
and to the ancient makes recompense.
I am exiled from your world
of pride polite, by pride defrauded,
I am the king without crown.
I am the passion without words
without stones of the hearth, without weapons in the war,
is my same force that make me sick #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Lover Of Words quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#26. Art symbolizes our perfect ability in the matter of enriching the reality! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Lover Of Words quotes by Huell Howser
#27. The words 'California's Gold' will no longer mean anything about me or about a television series. They will mean what California's Gold has always truly meant: not the literal gold nuggets that they pulled out of the earth, not the riches people got when they came here, but the dreams that brought people here and are still bringing people here. #Quote by Huell Howser
Lover Of Words quotes by S.A. Tawks
#28. The job description, like most, used complicated words that made job-hopefuls hesitant to apply because it may be out of their range of capability. #Quote by S.A. Tawks
Lover Of Words quotes by Colleen Hoover
#29. Fallon," he whispers, moving his lips slowly across mine. "Thank you for this beautiful gift." As soon as his words brush over my mouth, he covers me in a deep kiss. My whole body tenses from the burst of pain that ripples through me as he pushes inside of me, but the perfection of the way we fit together makes the pain a mere inconvenience. It's beautiful. He's beautiful. And somehow, with the way he's looking down at me, I even believe I'm beautiful. He presses his mouth against my ear and whispers, "No combination of written words could ever do this moment justice. #Quote by Colleen Hoover
Lover Of Words quotes by Mark Haddon
#30. Siobhan said that when you are writing a book you have to include some descriptions of things. I said that I could take photographs and put them in the book. But she said the idea of a book was to describe things using words so that people could read them and make a picture in their own head. #Quote by Mark Haddon
Lover Of Words quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#31. The limits of my language are the limits of my universe. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Lover Of Words quotes by Frederick Lenz
#32. Meditation is not emptiness. That is a way of trying to talk about something that is impossible to put into words. It is a world of fullness, if anything. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Lover Of Words quotes by Barack Obama
#33. I believe, in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., that there is such a thing as being too late, and when it comes to climate change, that hour is almost upon us. #Quote by Barack Obama
Lover Of Words quotes by Alexandra Bracken
#34. But there was another, secret Ruby. This one was as thin as a wisp of air, and had struggled for so long just to be. This was the one that Liam carried with him, without knowing. The one that would ride in his back pocket, whisper words of encouragement, tell him he was born to chase the light. #Quote by Alexandra Bracken
Lover Of Words quotes by Larry Dossey
#35. The cognitive structure does not generate consciousness; it simply reflects it; and in the process limits and embellishes it. In a fundamental sense, consciousness is the source of our awareness. In other words, consciousness is not merely awareness as manifest in different forms but it is also what makes awareness possible. #Quote by Larry Dossey
Lover Of Words quotes by Osho
#36. All the buddhas of all the ages have been telling you a very simple fact:
Be - don´t try to become. Within these two words, be and becoming,
your whole life is contained. Being is enlightenment, becoming is ignorance." Osho #Quote by Osho
Lover Of Words quotes by Wayne Grudem
#37. The idea that all the words in Scripture are God's words in such a way that to disbelieve or disobey any word of Scripture is to disbelieve or disobey God. #Quote by Wayne Grudem
Lover Of Words quotes by Eugene Ionesco
#38. The poet cannot invent new words every time, of course. He uses the words of the tribe. But the handling of the word, the accent, a new articulation, renew them. #Quote by Eugene Ionesco
Lover Of Words quotes by Emma Donoghue
#39. By her family circle. That was my phrase, one that could include me by some stretch of the imagination; 'circle' sounded too symmetrical, but it would have to do. #Quote by Emma Donoghue
Lover Of Words quotes by David Levithan
#40. Fraught, adj.
Does every "I love you" deserve an "I love you too"? Does every kiss deserve a kiss back? Does every night deserve to be spent on a lover?
If the answer to any of these is "No," what do we do? #Quote by David Levithan
Lover Of Words quotes by Rae Meadows
#41. He has an idea. For wood. Or Styron does. Something about boxcars." "Boxcars?" "A mess of them at the old yard." "That's good news. That's real good news." He smiled, and she braced herself for the three words that she knew would follow. "The Lord provides," he said. She felt #Quote by Rae Meadows
Lover Of Words quotes by Luigi Pirandello
#42. How can we ever come to an understanding if I put in the words I utter the sense and value of things as I see them; while you who listen to me must inevitably translate them according to the conception of things each one of you has within himself. #Quote by Luigi Pirandello
Lover Of Words quotes by Ernest Shackleton
#43. One feels 'the dearth of human words, the roughness of mortal speech' in trying to describe things intangible. #Quote by Ernest Shackleton
Lover Of Words quotes by George Carlin
#44. My grandfather, mother and father were gifted verbally, and my mother passed that along to me. She always made sure I was conscious of language and words. #Quote by George Carlin
Lover Of Words quotes by Joe Abercrombie
#45. Get what you can with words, because words are free, but the words of an armed man ring that much sweeter. #Quote by Joe Abercrombie
Lover Of Words quotes by Diyar Harraz
#46. What Zayd had said to her was hurtful. The words speared across the most sensitive part of her heart like how a gardening spear cut along the leaves, leaving the top part of the bushes bare and lost. #Quote by Diyar Harraz
Lover Of Words quotes by Zoketsu Norman Fischer
#47. Years ago I went to the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem and did what all tourists there do: wrote some words on a scrap of paper that I tucked into a crevice in the wall. When I closed my eyes and touched my head to the warm stone, it came to me: "All language is prayer." This must be so. Who is it we are speaking to when we speak to anyone? To that person, and also past him or her to Out There. If there is language, it means there is the possibility of being heard, being met, being loved. And reaching out to be heard, met, or loved is a holy act. Language is holy. #Quote by Zoketsu Norman Fischer
Lover Of Words quotes by Booker T. Washington
#48. Frederick Douglass, of sainted memory, once, in addressing his race, used these words: "We are to prove that we can better our own condition. One way to do this is to accumulate property. This may sound to you like a new gospel. You have been accustomed to hear that money is the root of all evil, etc. On the other hand, property - money, if you please - will purchase for us the only condition by which any people can rise to the dignity of genuine manhood; for without property there can be no leisure, without leisure there can be no thought, without thought there can be no invention, without invention there can be no progress. #Quote by Booker T. Washington
Lover Of Words quotes by J. Kenner
#49. Wishing I had the words to truly describe the way my heart swells with both relief and gratitude when I think about how even the tiniest snip of the threads in the tapestry of time could have sent our lives spiraling down different paths. #Quote by J. Kenner
Lover Of Words quotes by Siri Hustvedt
#50. I know that what's said is often less important than the tone of voice in which the words are spoken. There is music in dialogue, mysterious harmonies and dissonances that vibrate in the body like a tuning fork. #Quote by Siri Hustvedt
Lover Of Words quotes by Amanda Sun
#51. Those are big words for a rice ball," I said, flicking him in the shoulder. "I'm not a rice ball, Greene. Do you know the meaning of the myoji for 'Satoshi'? Wisdom. It's wisdom, Jackass. #Quote by Amanda Sun
Lover Of Words quotes by Joanna Bourke
#52. Sir, -

Whether women are the equals of men has been endlessly debated; whether they have souls has been a moot point; but can it be too much to ask [for a definitive acknowledgement that at least they are animals?… Many hon. members may object to the proposed Bill enacting that, in statutes respecting the suffrage, 'wherever words occur which import the masculine gender they shall be held to include women;' but could any object to the insertion of a clause in another Act that 'whenever the word "animal" occur it shall be held to include women?' Suffer me, thorough your columns, to appeal to our 650 [parliamentary] representatives, and ask - Is there not one among you then who will introduce such a motion? There would then be at least an equal interdict on wanton barbarity to cat, dog, or woman…

Yours respectfully,

AN EARNEST ENGLISHWOMAN #Quote by Joanna Bourke
Lover Of Words quotes by Jonathan Burkett
#53. Trust in this life is a hard thing to earn and keep. #Quote by Jonathan Burkett
Lover Of Words quotes by James S.A. Corey
#54. Tell me everything it explains, he said when he could remember how to speak. Being forced to move moist flaps of meat in order to form the words felt sensual and obscene. #Quote by James S.A. Corey
Lover Of Words quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#55. Writer is a monkey, jumping from one tree to another in the jungle of words. #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
