Siksika Language quotes by Mitch Albom
#1. As mankind grew obsessed with its hours, the sorrow of lost time became a permanent hole in the human heart. People fretted over missed chances, over inefficient days; they worried constantly about how long they would live, because counting life's moments had led, inevitably, to counting them down. Soon, in every nation and in every language, time became the most precious commodity. #Quote by Mitch Albom
Siksika Language quotes by James W. Fowler
#2. I believe faith is a human universal. We are endowed at birth with nascent capacities for faith. How these capacities are activated and grow depends to a large extent on how we are welcomed into the world and what kinds of environments we grow in. Faith is interactive and social; it requires community, language, ritual and nurture. Faith is also shaped by initiatives from beyond us and other people, initiatives of spirit or grace. How these latter initiatives are recognized and imaged, or unperceived and ignored, powerfully affects the shape of faith in our lives. #Quote by James W. Fowler
Siksika Language quotes by May Sarton
#3. When I speak of life and love as expanding with age, sex seems the least important thing. At any age we grow by the enlarging of consciousness, by learning a new language, or a new art or craft (gardening?) that implies a new way of looking at the universe. Love is one of the great enlargers of the person because it requires us to "take in" the stranger and to understand him, and to exercise restraint and tolerance as well as imagination to make the relationship work. #Quote by May Sarton
Siksika Language quotes by Nawal El Saadawi
#4. Home is where you are appreciated, safe and protected, creative, and where you are loved - not where you are put in prison. #Quote by Nawal El Saadawi
Siksika Language quotes by Pilar Orti
#5. It became the country's official language in the 13th century under the reign of Alfonso X el Sabio (the wise one) as he tried to unify a country that was housing a number of languages, including arabic, hebrew and latin. #Quote by Pilar Orti
Siksika Language quotes by Bebe Moore Campbell
#6. In all his imaginings, he had never envisioned her crying. He knew that her son had died, but he'd never expected that her pain might be anything he could recognize, almost as though he believed that Negroes had their own special kind of grieving ritual, another language, something other than tears they used to express their sadness. #Quote by Bebe Moore Campbell
Siksika Language quotes by Jennifer Stone
#7. All media can muddy the mind. Language leads to literature. It also leads to dogma. #Quote by Jennifer Stone
Siksika Language quotes by Eric Partridge
#8. In short, every adventure of the mind is an adventure vehicled by words. Every adventure of the mind is an adventure with words; every such adventure is an adventure among words; and occasionally an adventure is an adventure of words. It is no exaggeration to say that, in every word of every language - every single word or phrase of every language, however primitive or rudimentary or frag­mentarily recorded, and whether living or dead- we discover an enlightening, sometimes a rather frightening, vignette of history; with such a term as water we find that we require a volume rather than a vignette. Sometimes the history concerned may seem to affect only an individual. But, as John Donne remarked in 1624, 'No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main;… any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.' History is not merely individual, it is collective or social; not only national, but international; not simply terrestrial, but universal. History being recorded in words and achieved partly, sometimes predominantly, by words, it follows that he who despises or belittles or does no worse than underestimate, the value and power, the ineluctable necessity of words, despises all history and therefore despises mankind (himself perhaps excluded). He who ignores the enduring power and the history of words ignores that sole part of himself whi #Quote by Eric Partridge
Siksika Language quotes by Joss Whedon
#9. I just love language. I mean, I love it. I love stage directions. Any opportunity to write. I hadn't written in so long, I get very crazy and miserable. I - it's like not seeing my kids: I can't do it for very long. #Quote by Joss Whedon
Siksika Language quotes by Hilary Mantel
#10. I dislike pastiche; it attracts attention to the language only. #Quote by Hilary Mantel
Siksika Language quotes by Henri Delacroix
#11. The individual's whole experience is built upon the plan of his language. #Quote by Henri Delacroix
Siksika Language quotes by Nikki Giovanni
#12. I'm glad I understand that while language is a gift, listening is a responsibility. (U.S. poet and writer, 1943- ) #Quote by Nikki Giovanni
Siksika Language quotes by Aphra Behn
#13. Money speaks sense in a language all nations understand. #Quote by Aphra Behn
Siksika Language quotes by Edward Abbey
#14. I'm not sure that I care for the idea of strangers examining my daily habits and folkways, studying my language, inspecting my costume, questioning me about my religion, classifying my artifacts, investigating my sexual rites and evaluating my chances for cultural survival. So I lived alone. #Quote by Edward Abbey
Siksika Language quotes by Sarah Palin
#15. Assange is not a 'journalist' any more than the 'editor' of al-Qaeda's new English-language magazine 'Inspire' is a 'journalist.' He is an anti-American operative with blood on his hands. #Quote by Sarah Palin
Siksika Language quotes by Quentin Tarantino
#16. A lot of them [Germaqn actors] could come in and we could speak for the next nine hours in English and there would be no problem. It was - but it was - English wasn't the language for them to read poetry in. And there is a - there's a poetic quality to my dialogue. #Quote by Quentin Tarantino
Siksika Language quotes by Paul Babicki
#17. To make a simple change of a typeface can instantly transform text which had the appearance and tone of a joyous announcement to suddenly convey that of a somber tragedy. #Quote by Paul Babicki
Siksika Language quotes by Cristina Marrero
#18. Language has everything to do with oppression and liberation. When the word "victory" means conquer vs. harmony and the word "equality" means homogenization vs. unity in/through diversity, then the liberation of a people from a "minority" class to "communal stakeholders" becomes much more difficult. Oppression has deep linguistic roots. We see it in conversations which interchange the idea of struggle with suffering in order to normalize abuse. We are the creators of our language, and our definitions shape the perceptions we have of the world. The first step to ending oppression is finding a better method of communication which is not solely dependent on a language rooted in the ideology of oppressive structures. #Quote by Cristina Marrero
Siksika Language quotes by Richard E. Pattis
#19. The discipline of programming is most like sorcery. Both use precise language to instruct inanimate objects to do our bidding. Small mistakes in programs or spells can lead to completely unforseen behavior: e.g., see the story, "The Sorcerer's Apprentice". Neither study is easy: " ... her [Galinda's] early appetite for sorcery had waned once she'd heard what a grind it was to learn spells and, worse, to understand them." from the book "Wicked" by G. Maguire. #Quote by Richard E. Pattis
Siksika Language quotes by Linda Åkeson McGurk
#20. The national curriculum for the Swedish preschool is twenty pages long and goes on at length about things like fostering respect for one another, human rights, and democratic values, as well as a lifelong desire to learn. The document's word choices are a pretty good clue to what Swedish society wants and expects from toddlers and preschoolers. The curriculum features the word "play" thirteen times, "language" twelve times, "nature" six times, and "math" five times. But there is not a single mention of "literacy" or "writing." Instead, two of the most frequently used words are "learning" (with forty-eight appearances) and "development" (forty-seven).

The other Scandinavian countries have similar early childhood education traditions. In Finland, formal teaching of reading doesn't start until the child begins first grade, at age seven, and in the Finnish equivalent of kindergarten, which children enroll in the year they turn six, teachers will only teach reading if a child is showing an interest in it. Despite this lack of emphasis on early literacy, Finland is considered the most literate country in the world, with Norway coming in second, and Iceland, Denmark, and Sweden rounding out the top five, according to a 2016 study by Central Connecticut State University. John Miller, who conducted the study, noted that the five Nordic countries scored so well because "their monolithic culture values reading. #Quote by Linda Åkeson McGurk
Siksika Language quotes by Maria Mazziotti Gillan
#21. Sometimes in composition class, when I have been confronted by someone who simply cannot get the first word written on paper, I give the following advice: Say your essay into a tape recorder and then write it down. #Quote by Maria Mazziotti Gillan
Siksika Language quotes by Gwenno
#22. Music is enough of an expression that it doesn't really matter what the words are or what language it's in. #Quote by Gwenno
Siksika Language quotes by Leslie Feinberg
#23. It was over Ed's shoulder that I really saw Milli for the first time. She was standing there just looking at me. Ed glanced at Milli and then, like a good friend, Ed walked away.
I have a few mental photographs I can see in my mind's eye. One of them is Milli, hands on her hips, looking me up and down as if the bike and I were one lean machine. Her body language, the gleam in her eyes, the tease in her smile, all combined into an erotic femme challenge. Milli set the action into irresistible motion by lifting on eyebrow. #Quote by Leslie Feinberg
Siksika Language quotes by Lisa Genova
#24. I used to know how the mind handled language, and I could communicate what I knew. I used to be someone who knew a lot. No one asks for my opinion or advice anymore. I miss that. I used to be curious and independent and confident. I miss being sure of things. There's no peace in being unsure of everything all the time. I miss doing everything easily. I miss being a part of what's happening. I miss feeling wanted. I miss my life and my family. I loved my life and family. #Quote by Lisa Genova
Siksika Language quotes by Karen Lord
#25. She had imagined her mind would be bare before his, naked under a scorching desert sun, with neither shelter nor refuge. Instead, it was like playing hide-and-seek in the light and shadow of a forest, discovering and inventing a new language of double meaning, subtlety, poetry, and image. As a linguist, she was captivated; as a lover, she was enraptured. Nothing could be said the same way twice. #Quote by Karen Lord
Siksika Language quotes by Thomas Merton
#26. For language to have meaning, there must be intervals of silence somewhere, to divide word from word and utterance from utterance. He who retires into silence does not necessarily hate language. Perhaps it is love and respect for language which imposes silence upon him. For the mercy of God is not heard in words unless it is heard, both before and after the words are spoken, in silence, #Quote by Thomas Merton
Siksika Language quotes by Bobby McFerrin
#27. When we listen to improvisational jazz, or solo classical violinists, the way they phrase and inflect melodies feels vocal, like they're talking to us. When I was figuring out how to perform solo, I wanted to move back and forth between bass riffs, melody, and harmony, so I often used sounds instead of - or alongside - the words of a song. I found that if I sang a line using the consonants, vowels, shadings, and inflection we recognize as human language sounds, people responded as if I were talking to them. #Quote by Bobby McFerrin
Siksika Language quotes by Tania Aebi
#28. ...unfortunately, I am incapable of thinking up perfectly biting, split-second retorts, in any language. The French even have a word for this: l'esprit de l'escalier; staircase wit, something you only think of on the way out. #Quote by Tania Aebi
Siksika Language quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#29. The chief care of the legislators [in the colonies of New England] was the maintenance of orderly conduct and good morals in the community: thus they constantly invaded the domain of conscience, and there was scarcely a sin which was no subject to magisterial censure. The reader is aware of the rigor with which these laws punished rape and adultery; intercourse between unmarried persons was likewise severely repressed. The judge was empowered to inflict either a pecuniary penalty, a whipping, or marriage, on the misdemeanants; and if the records of the old courts of New Haven may be believed, prosecutions of this kind were not unfrequent. We find a sentence, bearing date the 1st of May, 1660, inflicting a fine and reprimand on a young woman who was accused of using improper language, and of allowing herself to be kissed. The Code of 1650 abounds in preventive measures. It punishes idleness and drunkenness with severity. Innkeepers were forbidden to furnish more than certain quantities of liquor to each customer; and simple lying, whenever it may be injurious, is checked by a fine or a flogging. In other places, the legislator, entirely forgetting the great principles of religious toleration which he had himself demanded in Europe, makes attendance on divine service compulsory, and goes so far as to visit with severe punishment, and even with death, Christians who choose to worship God according to a ritual differing from his own. Sometimes, indeed, the zeal for regulation ind #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Siksika Language quotes by Robert M. Pirsig
#30. I don't know why - it's just that - I don't know - they're not kin." - Surprising word, I think to myself never used it before. Not of kin - sounds like hillbilly talk - not of a kind - same root - kindness, too - they can't have real kindness toward him, they're not his kin
. That's exactly the feeling.
Old word, so ancient it's almost drowned out. What a change through the centuries. Now anybody can be "kind." And everybody's supposed to be. Except that long ago it was something you were born into and couldn't help. Now it's just a faked-up attitude half the time, like teachers the first day of class. But what do they really know about kindness who are not kin. #Quote by Robert M. Pirsig
Siksika Language quotes by Joseph De Maistre
#31. Every individual or national degeneration is immediately revealed by a directly proportional degradation in language. #Quote by Joseph De Maistre
Siksika Language quotes by Thom Gunn
#32. Deep feeling doesn't make for good poetry. A way with language would be a bit of help. #Quote by Thom Gunn
Siksika Language quotes by John Adams
#33. America is destined to be peopled by one nation, speaking one language, professing one general system of religious and political principles, and accustomed to one general tenor of social usages and customs. #Quote by John Adams
Siksika Language quotes by Christopher Soto
#34. Language is where the tongue fails itself over & over again. #Quote by Christopher Soto
Siksika Language quotes by Stephane Mallarme
#35. Verse is everywhere in language where there is rhythm, everywhere, except in notices and on page four of the papers. In the genre called prose, there are verses [ ... ] of all rhythms. But in truth there is no prose: there is the alphabet, and then verses more or less tight, more or less diffuse. #Quote by Stephane Mallarme
Siksika Language quotes by Jacques Derrida
#36. Contrary to what phenomenology - which is always phenomenology of perception - has tried to make us believe, contrary to what our desire cannot fail to be tempted into believing, the thing itself always escapes. #Quote by Jacques Derrida
Siksika Language quotes by Margaret Stevens
#37. Eventually you will get into the habit of enjoying line as a language all of its own. #Quote by Margaret Stevens
Siksika Language quotes by David Foster Wallace
#38. Like most religious mathematicians from Pythagoras to Godel, Bolzano believes that math is the Language of God and that profound metaphysical truths can be derived and proved mathematically. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Siksika Language quotes by Peter Hoeg
#39. Time is a sphere made up of language, colours, smells, senses and sounds, a sphere in which you and the world coexist, an instrument with which to put the world in order and comprehend it, one of the reasons for your survival.
But if time grows too tight, then it becomes a reason for doing away with yourself.
Time is not an illusion. Nor is it the only reality. It is one possible, widespread form for encounters between the mind and the surrounding world. But not the only possible one. If you are driven by curiosity, or if you are ill and cannot survive any other way, then you can enter the laboratory and touch time. And then it will change. #Quote by Peter Hoeg
Siksika Language quotes by Toni Morrison
#40. Oppressive language does more than represent violence; it is violence; does more than represent the limits of knowledge; it limits knowledge. #Quote by Toni Morrison
Siksika Language quotes by Rumi
#41. Speak any language, Turkish, Greek, Persian, Arabic, but always speak with love #Quote by Rumi
Siksika Language quotes by William Logan
#42. When someone offers you lines like that, he must be Mephistopheles and you must be Faust. You know you shouldn't succumb to such language, but you succumb. #Quote by William Logan
Siksika Language quotes by M.J. Duncan
#43. No helmets for the girls. No pads. No real gloves. And I'm not even going to go into the differences in what type of sticks they're allowed because that's just beyond messed up. No body checking. Game stopping every two seconds for some lame-ass penalty that wouldn't ever be called in the men's game. If you'll excuse my language, fuck that. Girls can beat the hell out of each other with a stick just as well as the boys can. If not better, in some cases. Bitches be vicious. #Quote by M.J. Duncan
Siksika Language quotes by Lidia Yuknavitch
#44. I considered quitting graduate school. I paid my ticket, I rode the ride. Right? Half the people I started with quit. I did not have to continue toward scholar. But something wouldn't let me. Some deep wrestling match going on inside my rib house and gray matter. Some woman in me I'd never met. You know who she was? My intellect. When I opened the door and there she stood, with her sassy red reading glasses and fitted skirt and leather bookbag, I thought, who the hell are you? Crouching into a defensive posture and looking at her warily out of the corner of my eye. Watch out, woman. To which she replied, I'm Lidia. I have a desire toward language and knowledge that will blow your mind. #Quote by Lidia Yuknavitch
Siksika Language quotes by Paul Valery
#45. Poetry is a separate language, or more specifically, a language within a language. #Quote by Paul Valery
Siksika Language quotes by Richard Mitchell
#46. A mind can be overthrown by words; that's the point. What is happening to the brain of a person who uses the passive, who writes, 'Delay should not be allowed to take place' instead of 'Hurry'? The user of the passive verb doesn't want a universe in which responsible agents do their acts. You see? Bad language ultimately is IMMORAL. #Quote by Richard Mitchell
Siksika Language quotes by Deyth Banger
#47. In face of comedy everything is funny… right voice tonality, right body language… and you are already half-way there as a comedian. #Quote by Deyth Banger
Siksika Language quotes by Lily King
#48. You don't realise how language actually interferes with communication until you don't have it, how it gets in the way like an overdominant sense. #Quote by Lily King
Siksika Language quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#49. There is no strictly secular language that can translate religious awe. #Quote by Marilynne Robinson
