Words

Famous quotes containing the word words:

    What other words, we may almost ask, are memorable and worthy to be repeated than those which love has inspired? It is wonderful that they were ever uttered. They are few and rare indeed, but, like a strain of music, they are incessantly repeated and modulated by the memory. All other words crumble off with the stucco which overlies the heart. We should not dare to repeat these now aloud. We are not competent to hear them at all times.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    All politics takes place on a slippery slope. The most important four words in politics are “up to a point.”
    George F. Will (b. 1941)

    The words of lowly people carry little weight.
    Chinese proverb.
