Way Of Speaking quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#1. Apart front the things you can pick up ( the dressing and the proper way of speaking and so on), the difference between a lady and a flower girl is not how she behaves, but how she's treated. I shall always be a flower girl to Professor Higgins, because he always treats me as a flower girl, and always will; but I know I can be a lady to you, because you always treat me like a lady and always will. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Way Of Speaking quotes by Elton Trueblood
#2. The Biblical language was so deeply embedded in the great man's mind that it became his normal way of speaking. #Quote by Elton Trueblood
Way Of Speaking quotes by Ben Edlund
#3. And Supernatural, in fact, going there wasit felt like a place where I had to actually, um, learn to be kind of manly. I felt like I had to kind of change my, like, way of speaking for a little bit, just to kind of fit in, oddly enough. Which was weird. #Quote by Ben Edlund
Way Of Speaking quotes by Robert Nathan
#4. What is it which makes a man and a woman know that they, of all other men and women in the world, belong to each other? Is it no more than chance and meeting? no more than being alive together in the world at the same time? Is it only a curve of the throat, a line of the chin, the way the eyes are set, a way of speaking? Or is it something deeper and stranger, something beyond meeting, something beyond chance and fortune? Are there others, in other times of the world, whom we should have loved, who would have loved us? Is there, perhaps, one soul among all others
among all who have lived, the endless generations, from world's end to world's end
who must love us or die? And whom we must love, in turn
whom we must seek all our lives long
headlong and homesick
until the end? #Quote by Robert Nathan
Way Of Speaking quotes by Henry Miller
#5. This is all a figurative way of speaking about what is unmentionable. What is unmentionable is pure fuck and pure cunt; it must be mentioned only in de luxe editions, otherwise the world will fall apart. What holds the world together, as I have learned from bitter experience, is sexual intercourse. But fuck, the real thing, cunt, the real thing, seems to contain some unidentified element which is far more dangerous than nitroglycerine. #Quote by Henry Miller
Way Of Speaking quotes by Barton Gellman
#6. Rolf Ekeus, his appearance can deceive. He looks somewhere between an international diplomat and a mad professor. He's got that sort of shock of white hair and a slightly absent-minded way of speaking. But he's extremely sharp and very serious about power relationships. #Quote by Barton Gellman
Way Of Speaking quotes by Terry Brooks
#7. He had never been in love. He had not known what it would feel like. He understood what the term meant, but his life had not allowed for exploring its possibilities. There had been few he had really loved. His parents; Michael. That was it. And that was love of a different kind. Less intense, less hungry. What he felt for Simralin went so far beyond anything manageable that it shocked him. He could tell himself it was because he had found her beautiful in a way that transcended anything he had ever known. But his attraction to her was a response to so much more. To her self-confidence and way of speaking. To her smile and the quirky way she lifted one eyebrow when she was amused. To the way she carried herself. To the way she looked at him. #Quote by Terry Brooks
Way Of Speaking quotes by Karen Abbott
#8. When Gypsy was older, after she became Gypsy Rose Lee, I think she was both proud and slightly ashamed of her Seattle roots. She worked very hard to rid her voice of any trace of a local accent, cultivating an affected way of speaking that sounded as if she pinned the ends of her words. #Quote by Karen Abbott
Way Of Speaking quotes by Neil Gaiman
#9. Circumlocution," said Mr. Croup to Mr. Vandemar. "It's a way of speaking around something. A digression. Verbosity. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Way Of Speaking quotes by Channing Tatum
#10. But I stuttered as a kid. I went to classes to help it, and it just went away around fourth grade, when I became more aware of how others spoke, I think. But also, growing up in the South, a mumble is a way of speaking. #Quote by Channing Tatum
Way Of Speaking quotes by Thomas Mann
#11. And then she kissed him on the mouth. It was one of those Russian kisses, the sort that are exchanged in that vast, soulful land at high Christian feasts, as a token and seal of love. But even as we record this kiss exchanged between a notoriously "subtle" young man and a charming, slinking, and still equally young woman, we cannot help finding in it a reminder of Dr. Krokowski's elaborate, if not always unobjectionable way of speaking about love in a gently irresolute sense, so that one was never quite sure whether he meant its sanctified or more passionate and fleshly forms. Are we doing the same thing here, or were Hans Castorp and Clavdia Chauchat doing the same with their Russian kiss? But what would be our readers' reaction if we simply refused to get to the bottom of that question? In our opinion, it is analytically correct, although - to use Hans Castorp's phrase - "terribly gauche" and downright life-denying, to make a "tidy" distinction between sanctity and passion in matters of love. What's this about "tidy"? What's this about gentle irresolution and ambiguity? Isn't it grand, isn't it good, that language has only one word for everything we associate with love – from utter sanctity to the most fleshly lust? The result is perfect clarity in ambiguity, for love cannot be disembodied even in its most sanctified forms, nor is it without sanctity even at its most fleshly. Love is always simply itself, both as a subtle affirmation of life and as the highest passion; love #Quote by Thomas Mann
Way Of Speaking quotes by Julia Peterkin
#12. Everything has its way of speaking and telling things worth knowing. Even the little grass-blades have their way of saying things as plain as words when human lips let them fall...the choice bits of wisdom...were never written down in any books. #Quote by Julia Peterkin
Way Of Speaking quotes by Frederick Lenz
#13. The light of the supra-conscious, of salvakalpa and nirvikalpa samadhi, is not connected to this world at all. It passes through this world but it is not part of this world, in a way of speaking. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Way Of Speaking quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#14. One open way of speaking introduces another open way of speaking, and draws out discoveries, like wine and love. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Way Of Speaking quotes by Thomas Hardy
#15. You don't talk quite like a girl who has had no advantages. #Quote by Thomas Hardy
Way Of Speaking quotes by J.M. Coetzee
#16. I want to find a way of speaking to fellow human beings that will be cool rather than heated, philosophical rather than polemical, that will bring enlightenment rather than seeking to divide us into the righteous and the sinners, the saved and the damned, the sheep and the goats. #Quote by J.M. Coetzee
Way Of Speaking quotes by Charles Baxter
#17. He had a particularly deliberate way of speaking that made him sound as if he had thought up his sentences several minutes ago and was only now getting around to saying them. #Quote by Charles Baxter
Way Of Speaking quotes by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
#18. I f thou must love me, let it be for nought Except for love's sake only. Do not say, I love her for her smile ... her look ... her way Of speaking gently ... for a trick of thought That falls in well with mine, and, certes, brought A sense of pleasant ease on such a day- For these things in themselves, Beloved, may Be changed, or change for thee-and love so wrought, May be unwrought so. #Quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Way Of Speaking quotes by Grace Paley
#19. I developed a definition - which I think becomes less and less accurate as poetry moves into the world - that poetry was a way of speaking to the world, but fiction was a way to get the world to speak to me. #Quote by Grace Paley
Way Of Speaking quotes by Northrop Frye
#20. Poetry is the most direct and simple means of expressing oneself in words: the most primitive nations have poetry, but only quitewell developed civilizations can produce good prose. So don't think of poetry as a perverse and unnatural way of distorting ordinary prose statements: prose is a much less natural way of speaking than poetry is. If you listen to small children, and to the amount of chanting and singsong in their speech, you'll see what I mean. #Quote by Northrop Frye
Way Of Speaking quotes by Daniel Callahan
#21. We have to do away with a false and misleading dualism, one which abstracts man on the one hand and technology on the other, as if the two were quite separate kinds of realities ... Man is by nature a technological animal; to be human is to be technological ... When we speak of technology, this is another way of speaking about man himself in one of his manifestations. #Quote by Daniel Callahan
Way Of Speaking quotes by Kate Morton
#22. She had a way of speaking that eschewed intonation. It was a leveler, making the ordinary seem extraordinary and vice versa. #Quote by Kate Morton
Way Of Speaking quotes by Alice Dalgliesh
#23. Friends have a way of speaking without words. #Quote by Alice Dalgliesh
Way Of Speaking quotes by Marjane Satrapi
#24. Americans think cinema is about storytelling; I don't believe that. I think it's a language and everyone has to find their own way of speaking. It's not so much what you say as the way you say it. #Quote by Marjane Satrapi
Way Of Speaking quotes by Jules Renard
#25. Ecrire, c'est une façon de parler sans être interrompu.
(Writing, it's a way of speaking without being interrupted.) #Quote by Jules Renard
Way Of Speaking quotes by Alan Jay Lerner
#26. An Englishman's way of speaking absolutely classifies him. #Quote by Alan Jay Lerner
Way Of Speaking quotes by Justin Cronin
#27. The world had a way of speaking to you if you let it; the trick was learning to hear. #Quote by Justin Cronin
Way Of Speaking quotes by Sue Monk Kidd
#28. The question occurred to me: Well, if that's so, if the Divine is ultimately formless and genderless, what's the big deal? Why all this bother?
The bother is because we have no other way of speaking about the Absolute. We need forms and images. Without them we have no way of relating to the Divine. Symbol and image create a universal spiritual language. It's the language the soul understands. #Quote by Sue Monk Kidd
Way Of Speaking quotes by C.G. Jung
#29. What is it, in the end, that induces a man to go his own way and to rise out of unconscious identity with the mass as out of a swathing mist? Not necessity, for necessity comes to many, and they all take refuge in convention. Not moral decision, for nine times out of ten we decide for convention likewise.

What is it, then, that inexorably tips the scales in favour of the extra-ordinary? It is what is commonly called vocation: an irrational factor that destines a man to emancipate himself from the herd and from it's well-worn paths. True personality is always a vocation and puts its trust in it as God, despite its being, as the ordinary man would say, only a personal feeling. But vocation acts like a law of God from which there is no escape. The fact that many a man who goes his own way ends in ruin means nothing to one who has a vocation. He must obey his own law, as if it were a daemon whispering to him of new and wonderful paths. Anyone with a vocation hears the voice of the inner man: he is called….

The original meaning of "to have a vocation" is "to be addressed by a voice." The clearest examples of this are to be found in the avowals of the Old Testament prophets. That it is not just a quaint old-fashioned way of speaking is proved by the confessions of historical personalities such as Goethe and Napolean, to mention only two familiar examples, who made no secret of their feeling of vocation. #Quote by C.G. Jung
Way Of Speaking quotes by Frank Kermode
#30. What Kant took to be the necessary schemata of reality,' says a modern Freudian, 'are really only the necessary schemata of repression.' And an experimental psychologist adds that 'a sense of time can only exist where there is submission to reality.' To see everything as out of mere succession is to behave like a man drugged or insane. Literature and history, as we know them, are not like that; they must submit, be repressed. It is characteristic of the stage we are now at, I think, that the question of how far this submission ought to go--or, to put it the other way, how far one may cultivate fictional patterns or paradigms--is one which is debated, under various forms, by existentialist philosophers, by novelists and anti-novelists, by all who condemn the myths of historiography. It is a debate of fundamental interest, I think, and I shall discuss it in my fifth talk.

Certainly, it seems, there must, even when we have achieved a modern degree of clerical scepticism, be some submission to the fictive patterns. For one thing, a systematic submission of this kind is almost another way of describing what we call 'form.' 'An inter-connexion of parts all mutually implied'; a duration (rather than a space) organizing the moment in terms of the end, giving meaning to the interval between tick and tock because we humanly do not want it to be an indeterminate interval between the tick of birth and the tock of death. That is a way of speaking in temporal terms of literary f #Quote by Frank Kermode
Way Of Speaking quotes by Shelly Rambo
#31. Language falters in the abyss; it fractures at the site of trauma. We need to find a different way of speaking from the depths, reclaiming the notion that language about God is always fractured language, always broken, and never complete. #Quote by Shelly Rambo
Way Of Speaking quotes by Jane Ellen Harrison
#32. Greek writers of the fifth century B.C. have a way of speaking of, an attitude towards, religion, as though it were wholly a thing of joyful confidence, a friendly fellowship with the gods, whose service is but a high festival for man. In Homer sacrifice is but, as it were, the signal for a banquet of abundant roast flesh and sweet wine; we hear nothing of fasting, of cleansing, and atonement. This we might perhaps explain as part of the general splendid unreality of the heroic saga, but sober historians of the fifth century B.C. express the same spirit. Thucydides is assuredly by nature no reveller, yet religion is to him in the main 'a rest from toil.' He makes Pericles say: 'Moreover we have provided for our spirit very many opportunities of recreation, by the celebration of games and sacrifices throughout the year. #Quote by Jane Ellen Harrison
Way Of Speaking quotes by Fred Melamed
#33. I always think of the character as being me. But me wearing a 'coat', which may be a different way of speaking, moving or regarding other people. To me, acting is pretending, just like kids playing, only you pretend as if it were really, really real. #Quote by Fred Melamed
Way Of Speaking quotes by Alice Munro
#34. The deceits which her spinster's sentimentality has practiced on her original good judgment are legendary and colossal; she has this way of speaking of children's hearts as if they were something holy; it is hard for a parent to know what to say. #Quote by Alice Munro
Way Of Speaking quotes by Katheryn Winnick
#35. The Norse way of speaking, no one really knew what the Vikings sounded liked, they were Norsemen. The accent is really a combination of a Scandinavian accent, maybe with a Swedish accent and an old way of speaking. #Quote by Katheryn Winnick
Way Of Speaking quotes by Ricardo Piglia
#36. I would have liked to have warned Tony not to come around here," Bravo said. He uses the pluperfect of the subjunctive, Renzi thought. He was so tired these were the kind of thoughts that popped into his head, thoughts once typical for him, when he was in college and he used to spend his time analyzing grammatical forms and verbal conjugations. Sometimes he wouldn't understand what people were telling him because he'd get distracted analyzing syntactical structures as if he were a philologist enraged by the distorted uses of contemporary language. Recently it has been happening less frequently to him. But sometimes, when he was with a women and he liked her way of speaking, he'd suddenly want to sleep with her because he was so excited by her use of the perfect preterit indicative. As if the presence of the past in the present justified just about any passion. #Quote by Ricardo Piglia
Way Of Speaking quotes by Mihail Sebastian
#37. Doesn't being over-familiar put you at a disadvantage? A more formal way of speaking doesn't just mean you're being polite, it's also a way of protecting yourself. #Quote by Mihail Sebastian
Way Of Speaking quotes by Shannon Celebi
#38. Mrs. Porter was from Virginia and had a smooth-as-cat-fur way of speaking. She taught me how to say, "Fiddle-Dee-Dee," just like Scarlett O'Hara and she made her split-pea soup with bacon and even let me try on her lipstick sometimes as she teased up my hair in the same sixties style she wore, "Ala Pricilla Presley," whoever that was. #Quote by Shannon Celebi
Way Of Speaking quotes by Robert Blumenfeld
#39. You must then learn to reproduce, or imitate, the sounds which are different from your own way of speaking, and to do that you must drill. This #Quote by Robert Blumenfeld
Way Of Speaking quotes by C.S. Pacat
#40. Damen held himself very still. This easy way of speaking of Auguste was new, and he didn't want to disturb it.
After a moment, Laurent said, 'He would have liked you.'
'Even after I started courting his little brother?' said Damen carefully. #Quote by C.S. Pacat
Way Of Speaking quotes by Thomas Sprat
#41. [In the Royal Society, there] has been, a constant Resolution, to reject all the amplifications, digressions, and swellings of style: to return back to the primitive purity, and shortness, when men deliver'd so many things, almost in an equal number of words. They have exacted from all their members, a close, naked, natural way of speaking; positive expressions; clear senses; a native easiness: bringing all things as near the Mathematical plainness, as they can: and preferring the language of Artizans, Countrymen, and Merchants, before that, of Wits, or Scholars. #Quote by Thomas Sprat
Way Of Speaking quotes by Richard P. Feynman
#42. My theory is that it's like a person who speaks French who comes to America. At first they're making all kinds of mistakes, and you can hardly understand them. Then they keep on practicing until they speak rather well, and you find there's a delightful twist to their way of speaking -- their accent is rather nice, and you love to listen to it. So I must have had some sort of accent playing the frigideira, because I couldn't compete with those guys who had been playing it all their lives; it must have been some kind of dumb accent. But whatever it was, I became a rather successful frigideira player. #Quote by Richard P. Feynman
Way Of Speaking quotes by Steve Maraboli
#43. Through my choices and actions, I have learned the most effective way of speaking to God is without saying a word. #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Way Of Speaking quotes by Jerry Jeff Walker
#44. New Yorkers have their own way of speaking, their own tempo, and Texans are a lot like that. As much as you think Texas is one thing and New York is another, they're very much the same. #Quote by Jerry Jeff Walker
Way Of Speaking quotes by Sri Aurobindo
#45. The expression "from above" is for us only a way of speaking. Many receive from above the command for action - we call it intuition. #Quote by Sri Aurobindo
Way Of Speaking quotes by Henry Louis Gates
#46. For black America needs a politics whose first mission isn't the reinforcement of the idea of black America; and a discourse of race that isn't centrally concerned with preserving the idea of race and racial unanimity. We need something we don't yet have: a way of speaking about black poverty that doesn't falsify the reality of black advancement; a way of speaking about black advancement that doesn't distort the enduring realities of black poverty. #Quote by Henry Louis Gates
Way Of Speaking quotes by Timothy Snyder
#47. Avoid pronouncing the phrases everyone else does. Think up your own way of speaking, even if only to convey that thing you think everyone is saying. Make an effort to separate yourself from the internet. Read books. #Quote by Timothy Snyder
Way Of Speaking quotes by Agnes Varda
#48. I call [ordinary people] real people, because they have in themselves an incredible treasure - stories, a way of speaking, a way of sharing, an innocence and a perversity which I find very interesting to discover little by little. #Quote by Agnes Varda
Way Of Speaking quotes by Garnette Cadogan
#49. Serendipity, a mentor once told me, is a secular way of speaking of grace; it's unearned favor. #Quote by Garnette Cadogan
Way Of Speaking quotes by Jessica Khoury
#50. Time has a different meaning for me, and these events that seem so monumental in the moment will one day be nothing more than a line in a scroll. These humans are but letters to be inked into history. A hundred years from now, I will be free. I will have forgotten their names and faces, and the struggles they have will not matter. Time has a way of burying things, shifting like the desert and swallowing entire civilizations, erasing them from map and memory. Always, in the end, everything returns to dust. #Quote by Jessica Khoury
Way Of Speaking quotes by Lisa Loeb
#51. Again, I'm used to speaking to a lot of people; I have a lot of friends and family, and I perform music and speak in front of a lot of crowds. So I share with people already a lot in my life. #Quote by Lisa Loeb
Way Of Speaking quotes by Maceo Mays
#52. never judge a book by its cover,whats in it is a way of life. #Quote by Maceo Mays
Way Of Speaking quotes by Sally Phillips
#53. The siblings of special needs children are quite special. Absolutely accepting and totally loving, from birth, someone who is different mentally, and has a different way of seeing the world, is a wonderful trait. It's a trait I wish there was another way of getting, but there isn't. And it does involve a degree of not having it fantastically easy. #Quote by Sally Phillips
Way Of Speaking quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#54. I have known only one way of carrying on missionary work, viz., by personal example and discussion with searchers for knowledge. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Way Of Speaking quotes by Idries Shah
#55. Saying of the Prophet
Speaking the truth to the unjust is the best of holy wars. #Quote by Idries Shah
Way Of Speaking quotes by Dalai Lama
#56. The way of presentation is different according to each religion. In theistic religions like Buddhism, Buddhist values are incorporated. In nontheistic religions, like some types of ancient Indian thought, the law of karma applies. If you do something good, you get a good result. Now, what we need is a way to educate nonbelievers. These nonbelievers may be critical of all religions, but they should be decent at heart. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Way Of Speaking quotes by Kim Baer
#57. Designers can learn from library science. In trying to deliver information, what are the cognitive frameworks or resistances to absorbing information? We're always trying to make information delivery as painless and seamless as possible. Even to the point that the person has no conscious perception of how the information is delivered. - Micki Breitenstein via way of Kim Baer's book, Information Design Workbook #Quote by Kim Baer
Way Of Speaking quotes by Bill Bryson
#58. It is not true that the English invented cricket as a way of making all other human endeavors look interesting and lively; that was merely an unintended side effect ... It is the only sport that incorporates meal breaks. It is the only sport that shares its name with an insect. It is the only sport in which spectators burn as many calories as the players-more if they are moderately restless. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Way Of Speaking quotes by Christopher Dunn
#59. There is a tendency to romanticize the abilities of the ancient Egyptians because they produced structures that were miraculous for their time and certainly would pose a serious challenge to ours. They were somehow immensely more talented with sticks and stones than modern researchers have been able to demonstrate using the same implements. When pondering the theories proffered by Egyptologists, one gets the impression that an ancient Egyptian quarry worker was like a maestro playing a complete symphony on a violin made of a cigar box and a stick and producing the quality of a Stradivarius.
The argument is pleasing and poetic, but the trouble is that, metaphorically speaking, when modern scholars make a violin from a cigar box and a stick, its results are precisely what you would expect from a cigar box and a stick. So the question persists: From what instruments did the symphonic architecture of Egypt materialize? #Quote by Christopher Dunn
Way Of Speaking quotes by Andy Goldsworthy
#60. The underlying tension of a lot of my art is to try and look through the surface appearance of things. Inevitably, one way of getting beneath the surface is to introduce a hole, a window into what lies below. #Quote by Andy Goldsworthy
Way Of Speaking quotes by Martha Char Love
#61. Our Human thinking brain operates by way of prediction, comparing new experiences to and constructing its perception from what is already believed to be true due to past experience. Without a mature intuition – thinking and feeling balanced and united - even groups trying to work together will only be capable of experiencing what has been going on in this sensory brain since about the 8th Century to the present. #Quote by Martha Char Love
Way Of Speaking quotes by Jodi Lynn Anderson
#62. Tiger Lily went back into the house, from which she kept watch of the ocean. She held her arms around her stomach and stayed awake. She didn't want him to catch her sleeping.
Peter did not come that night, or the next day, and she stayed awake. She did not believe he could have really gone, because for her, to leave the person you loved was impossible.
For three days, she kept on studying the horizon, even speaking to it, as if a ship that had already disappeared could hear her. "Choose me."
And Peter did choose. But he chose something else. #Quote by Jodi Lynn Anderson
Way Of Speaking quotes by Gail A. Eisnitz
#63. One time I took my knife and sliced off the end of a hog's nose, just like a piece of salami. The hog went crazy for a few seconds. Then it sat there looking kind of stupid. So I took a handful of salt and rubbed it on the wound. Now that hog really went nuts. It was my way of taking out frustration. Another time, there was a live hog in the pit. It hadn't done anything wrong, wasn't even running around. It was just alive. I took a three-foot chunk of pipe and I literally beat that hog to death. It was like I started hitting the hog and I couldn't stop. And when I finally did stop, I'd expended all this energy and frustration, and I'm thinking what in God's sweet name did I do. #Quote by Gail A. Eisnitz
Way Of Speaking quotes by Jeff Lindsay
#64. Doug Crowley was going to go the way of all flesh, and as quickly as possible I would find him and flense him and send him off to the ocean's floor in four neat and separate garbage bags, and I would do it before he could write another taunting drivel-filled blog bragging about his insult to me. I would tape him and teach him what it truly meant to be Me, and I would make him wish he had chosen someone else to fill out his shadow, and the only question at all was a very simple one-word query: How? #Quote by Jeff Lindsay
Way Of Speaking quotes by James Van Fleet
#65. I'm always willing to accept change, just as long as it isn't change for the sake of change. If that change will result in a better way of doing things, then I'm all for it. #Quote by James Van Fleet
Way Of Speaking quotes by Jean Lorrain
#66. ...the presence of others has become even more intolerable to me, their conversation most of all. Oh, how it all annoys and exasperates me: their attitudes, their manners, their whole way of being! The people of my world, all my unhappy peers, have come to irritate, oppress and sadden me with their noisy and empty chatter, their monstrous and boundless vanity, their even more monstrous egotism, their club gossip... the endless repetition of opinions already formed and judgments already made; the automatic vomiting forth of articles read in those morning papers which are the recognised outlet of the hopeless wilderness of their ideas; the eternal daily meal of overfamiliar cliches concerning racing stables and the stalls of fillies of the human variety... the hutches of the 'petites femmes' - another worn out phrase in the dirty usury of shapeless expression!

Oh my contemporaries, my dear contemporaries...

Their idiotic self-satisfaction; their fat and full-blown self-sufficiency: the stupid display of their good fortune; the clink of fifty- and a hundred-franc coins forever sounding out their financial prowess, according their own reckoning; their hen-like clucking and their pig-like grunting, as they pronounce the names of certain women; the obesity of their minds, the obscenity of their eyes, and the toneless-ness of their laughter! They are, in truth, handsome puppets of amour, with all the exhausted despondency of their gestures and the slackness of #Quote by Jean Lorrain
Way Of Speaking quotes by Vladimir Putin
#67. Let us be frank: provoking military-political instability and other regional conflicts is also a convenient way of deflecting people's attention from mounting social and economic problems. Regrettably, further attempts of this kind cannot be ruled out. #Quote by Vladimir Putin
Way Of Speaking quotes by Terry Gilliam
#68. I think there's a side of me that's trying to compete with Lucas and Spielberg - I don't usually admit this publicly - because I tend to think that they only go so far, and their view of the world is rather simplistic. What I want to do is take whatever cinema is considered normal or successful at a particular time and play around with it - to use it as a way of luring audiences in. #Quote by Terry Gilliam
Way Of Speaking quotes by Drexel Deal
#69. My volcano of compress anger was about to erupt in school, and it would take more than five years for my molten lava to be brought under control, which was through the loss of my sight. However, shouldn't there be a way of detecting and reaching out to kids like me before there is a massive problem? Why wait until there is a devastating eruption before we intervene? #Quote by Drexel Deal
Way Of Speaking quotes by O.J. Rendchen
#70. Man has created technology. Technology has created man; what we are today. Electricity is our way of life. Without it many would perish. #Quote by O.J. Rendchen
Way Of Speaking quotes by Nick Popaditch
#71. I wish you fair winds and following sea." And I explain that this is our way of wishing a person the best of luck and a long, good journey through life. #Quote by Nick Popaditch
Way Of Speaking quotes by Marianne Williamson
#72. Each of us is born with an internal navigational system. The thinking of the world has a way of switching the system off, but we can always turn it on again through prayer, meditation and forgiveness. Doing this puts us back on track in our lives, making us wise, convicted and powerful. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Way Of Speaking quotes by Zig Ziglar
#73. The young athlete who aspires to greatness, generally speaking, learns a number of things from several different coaches. The first one taught him the fundamentals; the second one instilled discipline in him and taught him more of the techniques that must be mastered to excel. #Quote by Zig Ziglar
Way Of Speaking quotes by Beth Neff
#74. Asking a question is just another way of telling you what to do. #Quote by Beth Neff
Way Of Speaking quotes by Mina Hepsen
#75. Love to my way of thinking, is the emotion one feels when they meet someone who makes them be what they want to be. We feel love toward someone who shows us the light, who pushes us to become what we have always wanted to become but may have never realized. We love the person who makes us love ourselves. #Quote by Mina Hepsen
Way Of Speaking quotes by Nan Goldin
#76. For me it is not a detachment to take a picture. It's a way of touching somebody - it's a caress ... I think that you can actually give people access to their own soul. #Quote by Nan Goldin
Way Of Speaking quotes by Ray McGovern
#77. When an administration embarks on a war justified by little or no intelligence, speaking the truth can be regarded as treachery. The country could use more of that kind of "treachery". #Quote by Ray McGovern
Way Of Speaking quotes by Bernard Cornwell
#78. What happens to you, Uhtred, is what you make happen. You will grow, you will learn the sword, you will learn the way of the shield wall, you will learn the oar, you will give honor to the gods, and then you will use what you have learned to make your life good or bad. #Quote by Bernard Cornwell
Way Of Speaking quotes by Handley Moule
#79. To be like Christ. To displace self from the inner throne, and to enthrone Him; to make not the slightest compromise with the smallest sin. We aim at nothing less than to walk with God all day long, to abide every hour in Christ and He and His words in us, to love God with all the heart and our neighbor as ourselves...It is possible to cast every care on Him daily, and to be at peace amidst pressure, to see the will of God in everything, to put away ALL bitterness and clamor and evil speaking, daily and hourly. It is possibly by unreserved resort to divine power under divine conditions to become strongest through and through at our weakest point. #Quote by Handley Moule
Way Of Speaking quotes by Fanny Burney
#80. Tired, ashamed, and mortified, I begged to sit down till we returned home, which I did soon after. Lord Orville did me the honour to hand me to the coach, talking all the way of the honour I had done him ! O these fashionable people! #Quote by Fanny Burney
Way Of Speaking quotes by Richard Branson
#81. The balloons only have one life and the only way of finding out whether they work is to attempt to fly around the world. #Quote by Richard Branson
Way Of Speaking quotes by Muhammad Raheem Bawa Muhaiyaddeen
#82. Precious child, what is the meaning of the saying,
"We must die before death?"
It means we must make all the evil qualities,
all the qualities of satan within us, die before our death.
If those qualities die, then the world within us dies.
And if the world within us dies, then all the sins,
ghosts, demons, and satan's contained within it also die.
The desire for earth, gold, and sexual pleasure
all die along with the world within us.
All that is left is Allah and His power (quadrat).
If all the evil qualities die within us,
then we die before death
and only Allah's qualities, actions and conduct will remain.
Then there will be no death for us.
We will have attained eternal life (hayat).
If we attain eternal life, where will we live?
We will live in heaven, in God's kingdom.

Way Of Speaking quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#83. When you say you want all peoples to unite, you really mean that you want all peoples to unite to learn the tricks of your people. If the Bedouin Arab does not know how to read, some English missionary or schoolmaster must be sent to teach him to read, but no one ever says, 'This schoolmaster does not know how to ride on a camel; let us pay a Bedouin to teach him.' You say your civilisation will include all talents. Will it? Do you really mean to say that at the moment when the Esquimaux has learnt to vote for a County Council, you will have learnt to spear a walrus? I recur to the example I gave. In Nicaragua we had a way of catching wild horses - by lassooing the fore feet - which was supposed to be the best in South America. If you are going to include all the talents, go and do it. If not, permit me to say what I have always said, that something went from the world when Nicaragua was civilised. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Way Of Speaking quotes by Anonymous
#84. Adam and Eve had no way of testing what God told them about the forbidden fruit. They couldn't work any experiment that would show them whether God had rightly predicted the effects of the fruit. They simply had to take God at his word. Satan interposed a contrary interpretation, but the first couple should not have taken his opinion seriously. They should simply have believed God. They did not, of course. They sided with Satan rather than God - or, perhaps better, they claimed that their own authority transcended God's. That is to say, they claimed autonomy. They claimed that they themselves were the highest authority, the ultimate criterion of truth and right. #Quote by Anonymous
Way Of Speaking quotes by Shinjo Ito
#85. You may have seen people praying to an image as if it had special power. Perhaps they're wishing for the well-being of their family, for material prosperity, or to recover from illness. But this way of practicing faith only leads to a dead end. Buddha images should serve as inspirations to cultivate the infinite loving kindness latent in the buddha within us. #Quote by Shinjo Ito
Way Of Speaking quotes by Pema Chodron
#86. There was a story that was widely circulated a few days after the attacks of September 11, 2001, that illustrates our dilemma. A Native American grandfather was speaking to his grandson about violence and cruelty in the world and how it comes about. He said it was as if two wolves were fighting in his heart. One wolf was vengeful and angry, and the other wolf was understanding and kind. The young man asked his grandfather which wolf would win the fight in his heart. And the grandfather answered, "The one that wins will be the one I choose to feed." So #Quote by Pema Chodron

#87. It comes, I suppose," I said thoughtfully, speaking to the air, "of spending too much time alone indoors, and forgetting that living things don't always stay where you put them. #Quote by Naomi Novik
Way Of Speaking quotes by Henry James
#88. One never said the things one wanted - one remembered them all an hour afterwards. On the other hand one usually said a lot of things one shouldn't, simply from a sense that one had to say something. #Quote by Henry James
Way Of Speaking quotes by H.W. Charles
#89. What a wise man knows, therefore, is how to construct a pattern that, given the human situation, is likely to lead to a good life. #Quote by H.W. Charles

#90. I will play with anyone for my country. I may have my personal preferences, but such preferences have never come in the way of playing for India. #Quote by Sania Mirza
Way Of Speaking quotes by Maurice Blanchot
#91. What does it remember? Itself, death as memory. An immense
memory in which one dies.
First to forget. To remember only where one remembers nothing.
To forget: to remember everything as though by way of forgetting. There is
a profoundly forgotten point from which every memory radiates. Everything is exalted in memory from something which is forgotten, an infinitesimal detail, a minuscule fissure into which it passes in its entirety. #Quote by Maurice Blanchot
Way Of Speaking quotes by Denise Bosler
#92. It's putting the aesthetic of a design before the function of a design. Those two things need to be in balance. Something can look beautiful and read beautifully but those two things need to be in balance. If a design is in the way of the actual communication, it's ten times worse. #Quote by Denise Bosler
Way Of Speaking quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#93. Confronted by outstanding merit, there is no way of saving one's ego except by love #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Way Of Speaking quotes by Wendy Higgins
#94. Tell me more," I said. "Tell me anything. What's the meaning of life?"
He let out a big, burly laugh.
"You thought you'd stump me with that one, didn't you? It's actually very simple. The purpose of life is to find your way back to a spiritual way of thinking and living-to be able to get past the physical stuff. That's pretty much the whole test. And every soul is given talents and strengths to help them along the way."
"That's it?"
He snickered at my bug-eyed response.
"It's much harder than it sounds." He looked up at the clock now. "Ten more minutes, little one. What else you got for me? #Quote by Wendy Higgins
Way Of Speaking quotes by Joyce Meyer
#95. Giving is just one way of expressing that God has been good to you and will continue to do so through your being good to others. #Quote by Joyce Meyer
