Power Of The Word quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#1. Man is a talking animal and he will always let himself be swayed by the power of the word. Machines won't change human nature. #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
Power Of The Word quotes by Fred Rogers
#2. For Rogers, the very act of asking questions, and trying to answer them honestly, was the key to growing and learning: "We can't always know what's behind a child's question. But if we let a child know we respect the question, we're letting that child know that we respect him or her. What a powerful way to say, "I care about you! #Quote by Fred Rogers
Power Of The Word quotes by Miguel Ruiz
#3. The power of the word is completely misused in hell. We use the word to curse, to blame, to find guilt, to destroy. Of course, we also use it in the right way, but not too often. Mostly we use the word to spread our personal poison - to express anger, jealousy, envy, and hate. The word is pure magic - the most powerful gift we have as humans - and we use it against ourselves. We plan revenge. We create chaos with the word. We use the word to create hate between different races, between different people, between families, between nations. We misuse the word so often, and this misuse is how we create and perpetuate the dream of hell. Misuse of the word is how we pull each other down and keep each other in a state of fear and doubt. #Quote by Miguel Ruiz
Power Of The Word quotes by Gaston Bachelard
#4. In my opinion, for Baudelaire, the word vast is a vocal value. It is a word that is pronounced, never only read, never only seen in the objects to which it is attached. It is one of those words that a writer always speaks softly while he is writing it. Whether in verse or in prose, it has a poetic effect, which is also an effect of vocal poetry. This word immediately stands out from the words that surround it, from the images, and perhaps, even, from the thought. It is a "power of the word." Indeed, whenever we read this word in the measure of one of Baudelaire's verses, or in the periods of his prose poems, we have the impression that he forces us to pronounce it. The word vast, then, is a vocable of breath. It is placed on our breathing, which must be slow and calm. And the fact is that always, in Baudelaire's poetics, the word vast evokes calm, peace and serenity. It expresses a vital, intimate conviction. It transmits to our ears the echo of the secret recesses of our being. For this word bears the mark of gravity, it is the enemy of turmoil, opposed to the vocal exaggerations of declamation. In diction enslaved to strict measure, it would be shattered. The word vast must reign over the peaceful silence of being. #Quote by Gaston Bachelard
Power Of The Word quotes by J.R. Ortiz
#5. Love and ruin are explained with letters of the alphabet.
The power of the word can describe the glory of the universe. It only requires an open mind and heart. #Quote by J.R. Ortiz
Power Of The Word quotes by Norman Mailer
#6. We are in love with the word. We are proud of it. The word precedes the formation of the state. The word comes to us from every avatar of early human existence. As writers, we are obliged more than others to keep our lives attached to the primitive power of the word. From India, out of the Vedas, we still hear: On the spoken word, all the gods depend, all beasts and men; in the world live all creatures ... The word is the name of the divine world. #Quote by Norman Mailer
Power Of The Word quotes by Robert Darnton
#7. The American revolutionaries believed in the power of the word. But they had only word of mouth and the printing press. We have the Internet. #Quote by Robert Darnton
Power Of The Word quotes by Megan McKenna
#8. The Resurrection is most clearly needed and most clearly revealed in those communities that are constantly seeking to correct and transform the world through the wisdom and power of the Word of God made flesh in their lives and actions in history. #Quote by Megan McKenna
Power Of The Word quotes by Barbara Brown Taylor
#9. When I forget the power of the word, I read Frederick Buechner. When I forget the deep relief of telling the truth, I read Frederick Buechner. When I forget to look for the holiness all around me, I read Frederick Buechner. When I forget why the gospel matters, I read Frederick Buechner. #Quote by Barbara Brown Taylor
Power Of The Word quotes by Thomas Mann
#10. The power of the word, with which the cast away is cast away, pronounces the turning away from all moral uncertainty, from every sympathy with the abyss, the reneging of that phrase of compassion, that "to understand all is to forgive all", and what was beginning here was that "wonder of the reborn impartiality", which was briefly mentioned in one of the author's dialogues with not a little mystery. What strange coherence! #Quote by Thomas Mann
Power Of The Word quotes by Julia Alvarez
#11. Marjorie Agosin proves the power of the word to transport us to the center of her humane and human vision. #Quote by Julia Alvarez
Power Of The Word quotes by Thomas Mann
#12. If I can contradict you at all, if I can
defend your own profession a little against you, it is not by saying anything new, but
simply by reminding you of some things you very well know yourself: of the purifying
and healing influence of letters, the subduing of the passions by knowledge and
eloquence; literature as the guide to understanding, forgiveness, and love, the redeeming
power of the word, literary art as the noblest manifestation of the human mind ... #Quote by Thomas Mann
Power Of The Word quotes by Knut Hamsun
#13. The poet must always, in every instance, have the vibrant word ... that by it's trenchancy can so wound my soul that it whimpers ... One must know and recognize not merely the direct but the secret power of the word; one must be able to give one's writing unexpected effects. It must have a hectic, anguished vehemence, so that it rushes past like a gust of air, and it must have a latent, roistering tenderness so that it creeps and steals one's mind; it must be able to ring out like a sea-shanty in a tremendous hour, in the time of the tempest, and it must be able to sigh like one who, in tearful mood, sobs in his inmost heart. #Quote by Knut Hamsun
Power Of The Word quotes by Adrian Rogers
#14. I know personally the transforming power of the Word of God-it's changed my life. #Quote by Adrian Rogers
Power Of The Word quotes by Susan C. Young
#15. Re is a prefix, which when used in front of a word, changes its meaning to convey a fresh beginning, a do-over, a repeat, a shift in perspective, or an opportunity to create something new. When you add the prefix Re, you are activating the power of the word to head in a new direction to build momentum for positive change and transformation. #Quote by Susan C. Young
Power Of The Word quotes by Thomas Keneally
#16. You know, so I was a weird eccentric kid but I did believe in the power of the word and of the word being made flesh I suppose, which again I suppose came from my temperament as well as my upbringing. #Quote by Thomas Keneally
Power Of The Word quotes by Martin Luther
#17. So great are the effectiveness and power of the Word of God that the more it is persecuted the more it flourishes and grows. #Quote by Martin Luther
Power Of The Word quotes by Huey Newton
#18. I know sociologically that words, the power of the word, words stigmatize people. #Quote by Huey Newton
Power Of The Word quotes by Sue Monk Kidd
#19. I think the word 'freedom' is beautiful, not so much in its phonics, but just in the power of the word itself. #Quote by Sue Monk Kidd
Power Of The Word quotes by Augusto Roa Bastos
#20. To write does not mean to convert the real into words but to make the power of the word real. #Quote by Augusto Roa Bastos
Power Of The Word quotes by Norman O. Brown
#21. I've been impressed by the extent to which one gets sentenced by one's own sentences. One explores certain things in play and then in a strange way they become commitments which one has to live. I have gained a deep respect for the demonic power of the word. Words are not idle. They have consequences. #Quote by Norman O. Brown
Power Of The Word quotes by Knut Hamsun
#22. One must know and recognize not merely the direct but the secret power of the word. #Quote by Knut Hamsun
Power Of The Word quotes by Steve Bremner
#23. In his book, Holy Spirit, Revelation and Revolution: Exploring Holy Spirit Dimensions, Reinhard Bonnke says: "Prayer is not enough to rouse a dead church. It needs the power of the Word imbued with the life of the Spirit. Life comes from the living Word. What we can do and what we should do is preach the Word. Praying for God to work is fine, but praying for Him to do what we should be doing is pointless. We cannot send his Spirit anywhere. He moves with us, and He is where we are. We cannot pray for God to save souls and bless people and then wait for something to happen. He sends us with the Word and the Spirit awaits us. It is our privilege to work for him, save souls for him. For anyone who thinks they do not have strength or power, the Word is their strength and their power. There are two important things to note: Holy Spirit meetings without the Word are human meetings, and prayer is not a substitute for the Word." 1 #Quote by Steve Bremner
Power Of The Word quotes by Elizabeth S.  Eiler
#24. You must find your own times and places of power and contentment, of native talent and success – and be unconcerned if they are different from another's sphere. Diversity is intentional, natural, enriching, and part of the wonder of being alive in the world. Be yourself, whomever and however that may be. #Quote by Elizabeth S. Eiler
Power Of The Word quotes by Alianne Donnelly
#25. Dark golden strands of hair fall over the face of a fallen angel. Strong jaw, proud nose, dark brows and a hard, twisted mouth. But his eyes… They aren't what I expected to see. They are
empty. Cold. Eyes of a true monster.
Promise me.
I promised. And I can see it now. This is not my Beast.
He sneers. "You're no savior. I know exactly what you are. You're the bitch that thinks to
banish me. From my own house, no less. Harridan," he accuses, his fury rising with each word.
My Beast could never be so cruel. "Trespasser. Interloper. Whore!" No, this is not my Beast.
But this was my Beast.
Before he became cursed. #Quote by Alianne Donnelly
Power Of The Word quotes by Karl Barry Sharpless
#26. We have a word game in English called "Twenty questions." To play Twenty Questions, one player imagines some object, and the other players must guess what it is by asking questions that can be answered with a "yes" or a "no." I imagine every language has a similar game, and, for those of us who speak the language of science, the game is called The Scientific Method. #Quote by Karl Barry Sharpless
Power Of The Word quotes by James Rachels
#27. The concept of God as a loving, all-powerful person, who created us, who has a plan for us, who issues commandments, and who is ready to receive us into Heaven, is a substantial concept, rich in meaning and significance for human life. But if we take away all this, and leave only the idea of an original cause, it is questionable whether the same word should even be used. By keeping the original word, we delude ourselves into thinking that we are talking about the same thing. #Quote by James Rachels
Power Of The Word quotes by Ben Carson
#28. Similarly, if the American people and their representatives do not know and understand what is in our Constitution, others will take advantage of them. Only when we understand the law of our land can we effectively hold our representatives accountable. Knowledge is power, and we must refuse to be bullied. #Quote by Ben Carson
Power Of The Word quotes by Andrew Lang
#29. Now that reading and writing are universal accomplishments, books are not bought so freely as they were about 1820. . . . [I]n fact, book-buying does not increase in proportion with the power of reading printed matter. People prefer periodical trash, snippets of twaddle.
[February 1894, editor's introduction to Dana Estes & Company's The Betrothed, by Sir Walter Scott] #Quote by Andrew Lang
Power Of The Word quotes by Sarah Schulman
#30. As the conversation continued it was clear that these were divided people. As artists as well as queers, these people wanted to be able to think in radical ways, to have insights, to realize, to make work that was outside of social assumptions, to be radical people who could-like the weary ACT UPers-achieve justice in some fashion. They admired their predecessors who had created change through confrontation, alienation, and truth telling. But their professional instincts led them in different directions: accommodation, social positioning, even unconscious maneuvering of the queer content they did have so that it was depoliticized, personalized, and not about power. #Quote by Sarah Schulman
Power Of The Word quotes by Penelope Lively
#31. The power of language. Preserving the ephemeral; giving form to dreams, permanence to sparks of sunlight. #Quote by Penelope Lively
Power Of The Word quotes by Reinhold Niebuhr
#32. We take, and must continue to take, morally hazardous actions to preserve our civilization. We must exercise our power. But we ought neither to believe that a nation is capable of perfect disinterestedness in its exercise, nor become complacent about a particular degree of interest and passion which corrupt the justice by which the exercise of power is legitimatized. #Quote by Reinhold Niebuhr
Power Of The Word quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#33. More and more I think of privatisation as being not just about the takeover of resources and power by corporate interests, but as the retreat of citizens to private life and private space, screened from solidarity with strangers and increasingly afraid or even unable to imagine acting in public. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Power Of The Word quotes by Marcus Buckingham
#34. The power of skills and knowledge is that they are transferable from one person to another. Their limitation is that they are often situation-specific - faced with an unanticipated scenario, they lose much of their power. In contrast, the power of talent is that it is transferable from situation to situation. #Quote by Marcus Buckingham
Power Of The Word quotes by Colin Marston
#35. The term "black metal" has become a lot looser, or can include a larger range of sounds and extra-musical aesthetics, not just Satan and power chords. #Quote by Colin Marston
Power Of The Word quotes by Hector Berlioz
#36. Which of the two powers, Love or Music, can elevate man to the sublimest heights? ... It is a problem, and yet it seems to me that this is the answer: 'Love can give no idea of music; music can give an idea of love.' ... Why separate them? They are two wings of the soul. #Quote by Hector Berlioz
Power Of The Word quotes by Laurence Sterne
#37. There is no small degree of malicious craft in fixing upon a season to give a mark of enmity and ill-will: a word
a look, which at one time would make no impression, at another time wounds the heart, and, like a shaft flying with the wind, pierces deep, which, with its own natural force, would scarce have reached the object aimed at. #Quote by Laurence Sterne
Power Of The Word quotes by Abigail George
#38. Life has hurt me. When life hurts you, which way do you go, up or down? When life hurts you what happens to a healthy body, a healthy mind? They gradually, gradually diminish. Evaporate. There was a false self. A Peter who believed in his power, that he could dominate any situation that he found himself in, that he could smoke and drink and be one of the guys but also a Lothario. #Quote by Abigail George
Power Of The Word quotes by Patrick O'Brian
#39. There are, as you know better than I - far better, indeed, a good many of our people are . . .' Here he hesitated trying to find which was least offensive: Papists? Romans? Mumbo-Jumbo certainly would not do. People of the old faith sounded obsequious. 'Most of them are Irish, of course; though quite a few come from the English north country. And then there are the mere foreigners . . . that is to say, the foreigners.'
'There is something to be said for the word Catholics. It is in general use in Ireland. #Quote by Patrick O'Brian
Power Of The Word quotes by Pope Francis
#40. The one who listens attentively to the Word of God and truly prays, always asks the Lord: what is your will for me? #Quote by Pope Francis
Power Of The Word quotes by Oriana Fallaci
#41. What are the symbols of American strength, wealth, power and modernity? Certainly not jazz and rock and roll, not chewing-gum or hamburgers, Broadway or Hollywood. It's their skyscrapers. Their Pentagon. Their science. Their technology. #Quote by Oriana Fallaci
Power Of The Word quotes by Kenneth E. Boulding
#42. Economic progress ... means the discovery and application of better ways of doing things to satisfy our wants. The piping of water to a household that previously dragged it from a well, the growing of two blades of grass where one grew before, the development of a power loom that enables one man to weave ten times as much as he could before, the use of steam power and electric power instead of horse or human power all these things clearly represent economic progress. #Quote by Kenneth E. Boulding
Power Of The Word quotes by John Kenneth Galbraith
#43. In the United States, though power corrupts, the expectation of power paralyzes. #Quote by John Kenneth Galbraith
Power Of The Word quotes by Neil Postman
#44. That is the function of theories - to oversimplify, and thus to assist believers in organizing, weighting, and excluding information. Therein lies the power of theories. Their weakness is that precisely because they oversimplify, they are vulnerable to attack by new information. When there is too much information to sustain any theory, information becomes essentially meaningless. #Quote by Neil Postman
Power Of The Word quotes by George Orwell
#45. When the first shock had worn off and when in spite of everything - in spite of their terror of the dogs, and of the habit, developed through long years, of never complaining, never criticising, no matter what happened - they might have uttered some word of protest. #Quote by George Orwell
Power Of The Word quotes by Barbara Park
#46. Then Mrs. confiscated my shiny glitter jar. Confiscate is the school word for yanked it right out of my hand. #Quote by Barbara Park
Power Of The Word quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#47. In a word, the right granted to a man to inflict corporal punishment on his fellow-men, is one of the plague-spots of our society. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Power Of The Word quotes by George Orwell
#48. Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me. #Quote by George Orwell
Power Of The Word quotes by John Boyd Orr
#49. Some wars have been due to the lust of rulers for power and glory, or to revenge to wipe out the humiliation of a former defeat. #Quote by John Boyd Orr
Power Of The Word quotes by Albert Meltzer
#50. Those who use the word 'anarchy' to mean disorder or misrule, are not in correct. If they regard government as necessary, if they think that we could not live without Whitehall or the White House directing our affairs, if they think politicians are essential to our well-being and that we could not behave socially without policemen, they are right in assuming that anarchy means the opposite to what government guarantees. But those who take the reverse opinion, and consider government to be tyranny, are right too in considering anarchy, no government, to be liberty. If government is the maintenance of privilege and exploitation
and inefficiency of distribution its tool then only anarchy is order. #Quote by Albert Meltzer
Power Of The Word quotes by Joyce Meyer
#51. Once we know the Word of God, we have a responsibility to be obedient to it. #Quote by Joyce Meyer
Power Of The Word quotes by James Anthony Froude
#52. Scepticism, like wisdom, springs out in full panoply only from the brain of a god, and it is little profit to see an idea in its growth, unless we track its seed to the power which sowed it. #Quote by James Anthony Froude
Power Of The Word quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#53. There is never a beginning, there is never an end, to the inexplicable continuity of this web of God, but always circular power returning into itself. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Power Of The Word quotes by Dawn Powell
#54. The basis of tragedy is man's helplessness against disease, war and death; the basis of comedy is man's helplessness against vanity (the vanity of love, greed, lust, power). #Quote by Dawn Powell
Power Of The Word quotes by Thomas Boston
#55. Again, the glory of one attribute is more seen in one work than in another: in some things there is more of His goodness, in other things more of His wisdom is seen, and in others more of His power. But in the work of redemption all His perfections and excellencies shine forth in their greatest glory. #Quote by Thomas Boston
Power Of The Word quotes by Robert Nisbet
#56. It is impossible to understand the massive concentrations of political power in the twentieth-century, appearing so paradoxically, or it has seemed, right after a century and a half of individualism in economics and morals, unless we see the close relationship that prevailed all through the nineteenth century between individualism and State power and between both of these together and the general weakening of the area of association that lies intermediate to man and the State. #Quote by Robert Nisbet
Power Of The Word quotes by J.I. Packer
#57. Hallowing God's name requires praise for the goodness and greatness of his redemptive work too, with its dazzling blend of wisdom, love, justice, power, and faithfulness. By wisdom God found a way to justify the unjust justly; in love he gave his Son to bear death's agony for us; in justice he made the Son, as our substitute, suffer the sentence that our disobedience deserved; with power he unites us to Christ risen, renews our hearts, frees us from sin's bondage, and moves us to repent and believe; and in faithfulness he keeps us from falling, as he promised to do (see John 10:28ff.; 1 Corinthians 1:7ff.; 1 Peter 1:3-9), till he brings us triumphantly to our final glory. We do not save ourselves! Neither the Father's saving grace, nor the Son's saving work, nor our own saving faith originate with us; all is God's gift. Salvation, first to last, is of the Lord, and the hallowing of God's name requires us to acknowledge this, and to praise and adore him for the whole of it. #Quote by J.I. Packer
Power Of The Word quotes by Rosemary Sutcliff
#58. The wind blustered in from the sea, setting the horses' manes streaming sideways, and the gulls wheeled mewing against the blue-and-grey tumble of the sky; and Aquila, riding a little aside from the rest as usual, caught for a moment from the wind and the gulls and the wet sand and the living, leaping power of the young red mare under him, something of the joy of simply being alive that he had taken for granted in the old days. #Quote by Rosemary Sutcliff
Power Of The Word quotes by Rachel Caine
#59. Claire scraped her chair back, walked over to the cordless phone lying on the counter, and dialed from the business card still stuck to the refrigerator with a magnet. Four rings, and a cheerful voice answered on the other end and announced she'd reached Common Grounds. "Hi,'" Claire said. "Can I talk to Sam, please?'"
"Sam? Hold on.'" The phone clattered, and Claire could hear the buzz of activity in the background - milk being steamed, people chatting, the usual excitement of a busy coffee shop. She waited, jittering one leg impatiently, until the voice came back on the line. "Sorry,'" it said. "He's not here tonight. I think he went to the party.'"
"The party?'"
"You know, the zombie frat party? Epsilon Epsilon Kappa? The Dead Girls' Dance?'"
"Thanks,'" Claire said. She hung up and turned to face Michael and Eve, who were staring at her in outright surprise. She held up the phone. "The power of technology. Embrace it. #Quote by Rachel Caine
Power Of The Word quotes by Richard Wright
#60. There was a hunger for power reaching out of the senses of man and trying to say something in the symbols of action. #Quote by Richard Wright
Power Of The Word quotes by Friedrich Reck-Malleczewen
#61. I have hated you in every hour that has gone by, I hate you so that I would happily give my life for your death, and happily go to my own doom if only I could witness yours, take you with me into the depths. When I let this hate free, I am almost overcome by it, but I cannot change this and do not really know how it could be otherwise. Let no one deprecate this, nor fool himself about the power of such hatred. Hate drives to reality. Hate is the father of the action. The way out of our defiled and desecrated house is through the command to hate Satan. Only so will be earn the right to search in the darkness for the way of love.
In our hatred, we are like bees who must pay with their lives for the use of their stingers. #Quote by Friedrich Reck-Malleczewen
Power Of The Word quotes by Bertrand Russell
#62. The word "theory" ... was originally an Orphic word, which Cornford interprets as "passionate sympathetic contemplation" ... For Pythagoras, the "passionate sympathetic contemplation" was intellectual, and issued in mathematical knowledge ... To those who have reluctantly learnt a little mathematics in school this may seem strange; but to those who have experienced the intoxicating delight of sudden understanding that mathematics gives, from time to time, to those who love it, the Pythagorean view will seem completely natural. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Power Of The Word quotes by Leonard Peltier
#63. Well ... I still can't see the light at the end of the
tunnel. These politicians are such sleazebags that you
just don't know. You can't really get anything from a
lot of them once they get into power. They totally
forget about all their commitments. The poor people
elect them, and they forget about all the poor people. #Quote by Leonard Peltier
Power Of The Word quotes by Margaret Atwood
#64. You could tell 'The Handmaid's Tale' from a male point of view. People have mistakenly felt that the women are oppressed, but power tends to organise itself in a pyramid. I could pick a male narrator from somewhere in that pyramid. It would interesting. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Power Of The Word quotes by Francis Chan
#65. The world is not moved by love or actions that are of human creation. And the church is not empowered to live differently from any other gathering of people without the Holy Spirit. But when believers live in the power of the Spirit, the evidence in their lives is supernatural. The church cannot help but be different, and the world cannot help but notice. #Quote by Francis Chan
Power Of The Word quotes by Avijeet Das
#66. You are Fire!
Don't believe these mere mortals.
They want to put you on a pedestal
and sing paeans to you;
later they would burn you
in the altar of that same fire!

Stand away and stand alone!
You are limitless!
But these mortals can only limit your sky!
You are the Universe!
But they will only give you a little space!
Break free! It's a trap!
They want to cage you!
Because, they are afraid of your real power!

You are a woman.
You are the fire!
You are all conquering.
You are all powerful!

You are Supreme!
You were not born to be a mere beauty queen!! #Quote by Avijeet Das
