Gilbert K. Chesterton
The word now is like a bomb through the window, and it ticks.
Arthur Miller

Josh Billings
There's small Revenge in Words, but Words may be greatly revenged
Benjamin Franklin

Albert Einstein
These words dropped into my childish mind as if you should accidentally drop a ring into a deep well. I did not think of them much at the time, but there came a day in my life when the ring was fished up out of the well, good as new.
John Steinbeck
Think not those faithful who praise all thy words and actions; but those who kindly reprove thy faults.
Socrates
To use the same words is not a sufficient guarantee of understanding; one must use the same words for the same genus of inward experience; ultimately one must have one's experiences in common.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Use the right word and not its second cousin
Mark Twain
We are students of words: we are shut up in schools, and colleges, and recitation-rooms, for ten or fifteen years, and come out at last with a bag of wind, a memory of words, and do not know a thing.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
We feel free when we escape - even if it be but from the frying pan to the fire.
Eric Hoffer
