Putrid Synonym quotes by David W. Jones
#1. Sophia was asked to speak to the students of a local medical school.
"Sophia, what do we need to be better doctors?" the students asked.
"Doctors," Sophia said, "need strong stomachs and strong powers of observation." Then she opened a canister. The putrid smell quickly moved through the classroom. Sophia stuck a finger in the jar, pulled it up, and then licked it. She passed the jar around encouraging each doctor in training to do the same. Each did, and though many felt nauseas, no one got sick.
"You all have very strong stomachs," she said. "But your powers of observation need some work."
"What do you mean?" they asked. "We did just what you did."
"There is one difference," she replied. "The finger I dipped in the jar was not the finger I licked. #Quote by David W. Jones
Putrid Synonym quotes by Dean Koontz
#2. How obvious can it be? ... The purpose of makeup is to defy the degradations of time, and time is just a synonym for death. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Putrid Synonym quotes by Timothy J. Keller
#3. contextualization is inevitable. As soon as you choose a language to speak in and particular words to use within that language, the culture-laden nature of words comes into play. We often think that translating words from one language to another is simple - it's just a matter of locating the synonym in the other language. But there are few true synonyms. The word God is translated into German as Gott - simple enough. But the cultural history of German speakers is such that the word Gott strikes German ears differently than the English word God strikes the ears of English speakers. It means something different to them. You may need to do more explanation if you are to give German speakers the same biblical concept of God that the word conveys to English speakers. #Quote by Timothy J. Keller
Putrid Synonym quotes by Angela Davis
#4. I have a hard time accepting diversity as a synonym for justice. Diversity is a corporate strategy. #Quote by Angela Davis
Putrid Synonym quotes by Eula Biss
#5. And when comfort is what we want, one of the most powerful tonics alternative medicine offers is the word 'natural.' This word implies a medicine untroubled by human limitations, contrived wholly by nature or God or perhaps intelligent design. What 'natural' has come to mean to us in the context of medicine is 'pure' and 'safe' and 'benign'. But the use of 'natural' as a synonym for 'good' is almost certainly a product of our profound alienation from the natural world. #Quote by Eula Biss
Putrid Synonym quotes by Ben Hecht
#6. In the court of the movie Owner, none criticized, none doubted. And none dared speak of art. In the Owner's mind art was a synonym for bankruptcy. The movie Owners are the only troupe in the history of entertainment that has never been seduced by the adventure of the entertainment world. #Quote by Ben Hecht
Putrid Synonym quotes by A.D. Aliwat
#7. Really, the definition of what makes us "human" confuses me. Showing "humanity" is like this synonym for "treating others kindly" or "like you want to be treated" or whatever, when that isn't really human at all. Whoever came up with that definition is a real scammer, and a real genius. More than anything else, humans have been terrible to each other throughout history, and this is still the way it works today and will continue to work. It's how we're wired. I have "human understanding"; that's it. #Quote by A.D. Aliwat
Putrid Synonym quotes by Thomas Watson
#8. Keep a clear conscience. Contentment is the manna that is laid up in the ark of a good conscience: O take heed of indulging any sin! it is as natural for guilt to breed disquiet, as for putrid matter to breed vermin. Sin lies as Jonah in the ship, it raiseth a tempest. If dust or motes be gotten into the eye, they make the eye water, and cause a soreness in it; if the eye be clear, then it is free from that soreness; if sin be gotten into the conscience, which is as the eye of the soul, then grief and disquiet breed there; but keep the eye of conscience clear, and all is well. What Solomon saith of a good stomach, I may say of a good conscience, "to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet:"Pr. 27. 7 so to a good conscience every bitter thing is sweet; it can pick contentment out of the cross. A good conscience turns the waters of Marah into wine. Would you have a quiet heart? Get a smiling conscience. I wonder not to hear Paul say he was in every state content, when he could make that triumph, "I have lived in all good conscience to this day." When once a man's reckonings are clear, it must needs let in abundance of contentment into the heart. Good conscience can suck contentment out of the bitterest drug, under slanders; "our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience."2 Cor. 1. 12 In case of imprisonment, Paul had his prison songs, and could play the sweet lessons of contentment, when his feet were in the stocks.Ac. 16. 25 Augustine calls it "the paradise of a g #Quote by Thomas Watson
Putrid Synonym quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#9. To call the world God is not to explain it; it is only to enrich our language with a superfluous synonym. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Putrid Synonym quotes by Theodore Levitt
#10. Ideation is not a synonym for innovation, conformity is not its simple antonym, and innovation is not the automatic consequence of "creative thinking.". #Quote by Theodore Levitt
Putrid Synonym quotes by Dean Koontz
#11. I said what might have been a bad word meaning excrement, but I hope that I used a polite synonym. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Putrid Synonym quotes by John Galsworthy
#12. Wealth is a means to an end, not the end itself. As a synonym for health and happiness, it has had a fair trial and failed dismally. #Quote by John Galsworthy
Putrid Synonym quotes by Patti Smith
#13. Everything here is a small offense and not of value as art or confession. It is not a whim. It is an attempt to peel another putrid skin. #Quote by Patti Smith
Putrid Synonym quotes by Andre Pichot
#14. To deny the existence of races or to replace the word 'race' by a synonym, hoping to produce some effect on the question of racism, displays only bad faith and stupidity. #Quote by Andre Pichot
Putrid Synonym quotes by John Muir
#15. The power of imagination makes us infinite. #Quote by John Muir
Putrid Synonym quotes by Stephen King
#16. Alone. Yes, that's the key word, the most awful word in the English tongue. Murder doesn't hold a candle to it and hell is only a poor synonym. #Quote by Stephen King
Putrid Synonym quotes by Benito Mussolini
#17. We have buried the putrid corpse of liberty #Quote by Benito Mussolini
Putrid Synonym quotes by Alexander Pushkin
#18. How sad, however, if we're given
Our youth as something to betray,
And what if youth in turn is driven
To cheat on us, each hour, each day,
If our most precious aspirations,
Our freshest dreams, imaginations
In fast succession have decayed,
As leaves, in putrid autumn, fade.
It is too much to see before one
Nothing but dinners in a row,
Behind the seemly crowd to go,
Regarding life as mere decorum,
Having no common views to share,
Nor passions that one might declare. #Quote by Alexander Pushkin
Putrid Synonym quotes by Lionel Shriver
#19. We'd been assured it wouldn't be painful, though she might experience 'discomfort,' a term beloved of the medical profession that seems to be a synonym for agony that isn't yours. #Quote by Lionel Shriver
Putrid Synonym quotes by Bertrand Russell
#20. It is permissible with certain precautions to speak in print of coitus, but it is not permissible to employ the monosyllabic synonym for this word. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Putrid Synonym quotes by Mindy Nettifee
#21. If a man is only as good as his word,
then I want to marry a man with a vocabulary like yours.
The way you say dicey and delectable and octogenarian
in the same sentence - that really turns me on.
The way you describe the oranges in your backyard
using anarchistic and intimate in the same breath.

I would follow the legato and staccato of your tongue
wrapping around your diction
until listening become more like dreaming
and dreaming became more like kissing you.

I want to jump off the cliff of your voice
into the suicide of your stream of consciousness.
I want to visit the place in your heart where the wrong words die.
I want to map it out with a dictionary and points
of brilliant light until it looks more like a star chart
than a strategy for communication.
I want to see where your words are born.
I want to find a pattern in the astrology.

I want to memorize the scripts of your seductions.
I want to live in the long-winded epics of your disappointments,
in the haiku of your epiphanies.
I want to know all the names you've given your desires.
I want to find my name among them,

'cause there is nothing more wrecking sexy than the right word.
I want to thank whoever told you
there was no such thing as a synonym.
I want to throw a party for the heartbreak
that turned you into a poet.

And if #Quote by Mindy Nettifee
Putrid Synonym quotes by Catherynne M Valente
#22. I reminded myself: when a book lies unopened it might contain anything in the world, anything imaginable. It therefore, in that pregnant moment before opening, contains everything. Every possibility, both perfect and putrid. Surely such mysteries are the most enticing things You grant us in this mortal mere
the fruit in the garden, too, was like this. Unknown, and therefore infinite. Eve and her mate swallowed eternity, every possible thing, and made the world between them. #Quote by Catherynne M Valente
Putrid Synonym quotes by Gregory Schrempp
#23. Long a topic of interest for history and philosophy of science, the Copernican Revolution more recently has become a favorite symbol for popular science writers. This symbol is used in two main ways, both of which shade easily into the mythic. First, the Copernican Revolution is invoked to mark a point of grand transformation between anthropocentric and objective thinking. Second, many portrayals of the Copernican Revolution heroize its protagonist and ritualize his deed. The Copernican Revolution designates an alleged shift in worldview that took place in the past, but also a sort of personal microcosm of that event - a rite of passage that any mind aspiring to science must undergo. The term "myth" in some usages becomes a near-synonym for pre-Copernican thought - a definition that is maddeningly inadequate even though refreshingly concise. #Quote by Gregory Schrempp
Putrid Synonym quotes by Thomas B. Macaulay
#24. All the walks of literature are infested with mendicants for fame, who attempt to excite our interest by exhibiting all the distortions of their intellects and stripping the covering from all the putrid sores of their feelings. #Quote by Thomas B. Macaulay
Putrid Synonym quotes by Jarod Kintz
#25. Both sexes have assholes, and both sexes have nipples. Yet only asshole is a genderless derogatory term. In the name of equality and linguistic diversity, I'm going to start using the word nipple as a synonym for asshole. Example: "Bra, you're being an asshole." "Nah, bra, you're being the nipple. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Putrid Synonym quotes by Anonymous
#26. I started to get nervous when people began posting, on the public newsgroups, plot suggestions for future books and speculation about how characters would develop. The Net is still new, and it is big and it is public, and has brought with it new perceptions and problems. (One minor one is that people are out driving their language on a worldwide highway without passing a test. Take the word plagiarize. I know what it means. You know what it means. Lawyers certainly know what it means. But I have seen it repeatedly used as a synonym for research, parody, and reference, as #Quote by Anonymous
Putrid Synonym quotes by John Muir
#27. No synonym for God is so perfect as Beauty. Whether as seen carving the lines of the mountains with glaciers, or gathering matter into stars, or planning the movements of water, or gardening - still all is Beauty! #Quote by John Muir
Putrid Synonym quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#28. Illusion is the best synonym for the word religion! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Putrid Synonym quotes by Guy LAROCHE
#29. Eccentricity is not the synonym for elegance. #Quote by Guy LAROCHE
Putrid Synonym quotes by Tim Ferriss
#30. Excitement is the more practical synonym for happiness, and it is precisely what you should strive to chase. It is the cure-all. #Quote by Tim Ferriss
Putrid Synonym quotes by Jef I. Richards
#31. There's so much truly putrid advertising out there it's embarrassing. But not all advertising is bad. Some of it is really quite mediocre. #Quote by Jef I. Richards
Putrid Synonym quotes by Leif Enger
#32. It seemed necessary just then to touch base with the Lord. Shutting my eyes, I leaned into the horse. I prayed in words for a little while . . . and then language went away and I prayed in a soft high-pitched lament any human listener would've termed a whine. We serve a patient God. . . . Andreeson, who I'd despised, now appeared to my mind as he might've to a worried brother. Talk about an unwelcome change. There in the cold, curled against Mr. Ford's sighing horse, I repented of hatred in general and especially that cultivated against the putrid fed. A pain started up, as of live coals inside, and like that I knew where he was. Knew, with certainty, why he hadn't come back out of the blizzard. I began to weep. Not only for Andreeson - weeping seems to accompany repentance most times. No wonder. Could you reach deep in yourself to locate that organ containing delusions about your general size in the world - could you lay hold of this and dredge it from your chest and look it over in daylight - well, it's no wonder people would rather not. #Quote by Leif Enger
Putrid Synonym quotes by Nelson Goodman
#33. My title "The Fabrication of Facts," has the virtue not only of indicating pretty clearly what I am going to discuss but also of irritating those fundamentalists who know very well that facts are found not madder, that facts constitute the one and only real world, and that knowledge consists of believing the facts. These articles of faith so firmly possess most of us, they so bind and blind us, that "fabrication of fact" has a paradoxical sound. "Fabrication" has become a synonym for "falsehood" or "fiction" as contrasted with "truth" or "fact." Of course, we must distinguish falsehood and fiction from truth and fact; but we cannot, I am sure, do it on ground that fiction is fabricated and fact found. - 91 #Quote by Nelson Goodman
Putrid Synonym quotes by Maureen Johnson
#34. The locker at the end of her bed had no lock, and one of the hinges was busted. She opened it up.
There was a thing in it.
The thing might have been a sandwich at some point, or an animal, or a human hand ... but what it was now was fuzzy and putrid.
A minute later, Ginny was down the stairs, out the door, and gone. #Quote by Maureen Johnson
Putrid Synonym quotes by Mindy Kaling
#35. I think sometimes people think cheerful is a synonym for dumb, so no one is ever cheerful. #Quote by Mindy Kaling
Putrid Synonym quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#36. Then I tell you this, as you value your putrid lives, you will leave here and make whatever lies you wish to your master. Never darken Lord Orrick's doorway again. For if you do, there is no corner of hell you can find to hide that I won't come seek you out. And I promise you, your master's wrath is nothing compared to mine. (Draven) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Putrid Synonym quotes by Susan Cain
#37. A few things introverts are not: The word introvert is not a synonym for hermit or misanthrope. Introverts can be these things, but most are perfectly friendly. #Quote by Susan Cain
Putrid Synonym quotes by Dean Koontz
#38. Modesty is related to diffidence, diffidence is related to shyness, Shyness is a synonym for timidity, timidity is a characteristic of the meek, the meek do not inherit the Earth, they serve those who are self confident and self assertive. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Putrid Synonym quotes by Neal Stephenson
#39. And yet all the gold is in England, it is dug up from Portuguese and Spanish mines, but it flows by some occult power of attraction to the Tower of London." "Flows," Caroline repeated. "Flows, like a current." Sophie nodded. "And the English have grown so used to this that they use 'currency' as a synonym for money, as if no distinction need be observed between them. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Putrid Synonym quotes by Andre Brink
#40. Everything one used to take for granted, with so much certainty that one never even bothered to enquire about it, now turns out to be illusion. Your certainties are proven lies. And what happens if you start probing? Must you learn a wholly new language first?
'Humanity'. Normally one uses it as a synonym for compassion; charity; decency; integrity. 'He is such a human person.' Must one now go in search of an entirely different set of synonyms: cruelty; exploitation; unscrupulousness; or whatever? #Quote by Andre Brink
Putrid Synonym quotes by Katherine Anne Porter
#41. There is no such thing as an exact synonym and no such thing as an unmixed motive. #Quote by Katherine Anne Porter
Putrid Synonym quotes by Suzanne Rindell
#42. With each mile we put behind us, I felt the air grow lighter in my lungs. It was as if the city had been one large pressure cooker, simmering in its own juices. With the top down on the coupe and a stalwart, man-made breeze blowing steadily in my face, I tallied the city's many summertime brutalities: the heat that radiated from the gray asphalt and made the air dance in wavy shimmers; the stagnant ponds in Central Park that turned a milky, putrid, almost phosphorescent green and incubated countless mosquitoes; the blasts of hot dirty air that breathed upward from every subway grate; oh, and how the loud noises pouring from construction sites even somehow seemed to further agitate and heat the air! #Quote by Suzanne Rindell
Putrid Synonym quotes by Dan Brown
#43. Google' is not a synonym for 'research'. #Quote by Dan Brown
Putrid Synonym quotes by Pope Francis
#44. If you withdraw into yourself, you run the risk of becoming Egocentric. And stagnant water becomes putrid. #Quote by Pope Francis
Putrid Synonym quotes by Timothy Snyder
#45. This is pluralism: not a synonym of relativism, but rather an antonym. Pluralism accepts the moral reality of different kinds of truth, but rejects the idea that they can all be placed on a single scale, measured by a single value. #Quote by Timothy Snyder
Putrid Synonym quotes by Jessica McHugh
#46. She draws her putrid grin so close I can smell her colon. #Quote by Jessica McHugh

Putrid Synonym quotes by Lilly Singh
#49. 'Unicorn Island' is the synonym for my happy place. It's a really beautiful message: that happiness is one of the hardest things you'll ever fight for, but it's the only thing worth fighting for. #Quote by Lilly Singh
