Words

Famous quotes containing the word words:

    When Wilson got upon his legs in those days he seems to have gone into a sort of trance, with all the peculiar illusions and delusions that belong to a pedagogue gone mashugga. He heard words giving three cheers; he saw them race across a blackboard like Mexicans pursued by the Polizei; he felt them rush up and kiss him.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)

    Some words live in my throat
    breeding like adders. Others know sun
    seeking like gypsies over my tongue
    to explode through my lips
    Audre Lorde (b. 1934)

    Your blasphemy, Salman, can’t be forgiven.... To set your words against the Words of God.
    Salman Rushdie (b. 1948)
