A Quote by Edward Roscoe Murrow on discovery, gifts, influence, and language

Language is one of the greatest gifts man has devised for himself. It ranks, alongside the discovery of fire and the wheel, as a major influence in making modern man what he is today.

A Quote by Edward Roscoe Murrow on dreams, emptiness, future, language, life, memory, past, and present

Language is the memory of man. Without it he has no past, a paltry present, and an empty future. With it he can bring his dreams to life.

A Quote by Edward Grimsley on children, cinema, cleverness, entertainment, evil, government, language, people, prayer, television, vulgarity, and wonder

People who knowingly select movies and television programs featuring foul language deserve exactly what they get. . . . Many people will wonder why governments that are clever enough to devise ways to shield children from the dangers of prayer in the classroom should not be clever enough to shield them from the evils of vulgarity in entertainment.

A Quote by E. C. Titchmarsh on beginning, careers, consequences, impossibility, independence, knowledge, language, literature, mathematics, rules, study, and thought

Perhaps the most surprising thing about mathematics is that it is so surprising. The rules which we make up at the beginning seem ordinary and inevitable, but it is impossible to foresee their consequences. These have only been found out by long study, extending over many centuries. Much of our knowledge is due to a comparatively few great mathematicians such as Newton, Euler, Gauss, or Riemann; few careers can have been more satisfying than theirs. They have contributed something to human thought even more lasting than great literature, since it is independent of language.

A Quote by Dwan Jacobsen Young on christ, darkness, despair, enemies, failure, hope, jesus, language, progress, soul, and world

Hopelessness may be the saddest word in our language. Despair is the enemy of our souls. It can paralyze us, halt our progress, and cause us to lose our way. But hope awakens us like a light shining in the darkness. We can endure all things when our hope is centered in one who will never fail us-our Savior, Jesus Christ, who is the light of the world.
