A Quote by Lewis Carroll on names, naming, nomenclature, classification, insects, and linnaeus

'What's the use of their having names the Gnat said, 'if they won't answer to them?'
'No use to them,' said Alice; 'but it's useful to the people who name them, I suppose.  If not, why do things have names at all?'
'I can't say,' the Gnat replied.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on names, imagination, luke soloman, proverb, axiom, picture, speaking, words, funny, humor, comedy, satire, parody, home, and return

Finally, we entered Chetaube County, my imaginary birthplace, where the names of the little winding roads and minuscule mountain communities never failed to inspire me: Yardscrabble, Big Log, Upper, Middle and Lower Pigsty, Chicken Scratch, Cooterville, Felchville, Dust Rag, Dough Bag, Uranus Ridge, Big Bottom, Hooter Holler, Quickskillet, Buck Wallow, Possum Strut … We always say a picture speaks a thousand words, but isn’t the opposite equally true?

A Quote by Lao Tzu on tao, words, understanding, expectations, contain, ambitions, mysterious, darkness heaven, concepts, earth, ten thousand things, names, boundaries, subtle, and heart

Tao is beyond words and beyond understanding. Words may be used to speak of it, but they cannot contain it. Tao existed before words and names, before heaven and earth, before the ten thousand things. It is the unlimited father and mother of all limited things. Therefore, to see beyond boundaries to the subtle heart of things, dispense with names, with concepts, with expectations and ambitions and differences. Tao and its many manifestations arise from the same source: subtle wonder within mysterious darkness. This is the beginning of all understanding.

A Quote by Robert Fulghum on names, masks, and costumes

All of these are names given me by other people, but not names I would have given myself.  My name is not mine, it's theirs.  It's a series of costumes put on my life by other people.

Robert Fulghum (1937 -)

A Quote by Robert Fulghum on names, dogs, affection, and voice tone

The name is not important anymore - it's the tone that counts.  I feel like an old dog I know.  He will come to any name you call him, just so long as your demeanor carries with it the promise of affection and food

Robert Fulghum (1937 -)
