A Quote by Nguyen on wisdom, life, inspiration, words, philosophy, and living

 

All needs nothing, therefore all is not everything because it still needs nothing, and the conclusion is if you want all seek nothing.

Non-Indian writers usually say "Great Spirit," "Mother Earth," "Two-Legged, Four-Legged, and Winged." Mixed-blood writers usually say "Creator, "Mother Earth," "Two-Legged, Four- Legged, and Winged." Indian writers usually say "God," "Mother Earth," "Human Being, Dog, and Bird."

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on words and meaning

Well, "slithy" means "lithe and slimy."  "Lithe" is the same as "active."  You see it's like a portmanteau - there are two meanings packed up into one word.

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on words, language, mastery, and meaning

'When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, 'it means just what I choose it to mean - neither more nor less.'
'The question is,' said Alice, 'whether you can make words mean so many different things.'
'The question is,' said Humpty Dumpty, 'which is to be master - that's all.'

A Quote by Alani on snow, winter, spring, wise, man, bored, life, words, quote, chinese, and boots

a wise man once asked,

"When the snow melts what do you do?"

"Stay inside and wish it were spring..." replied the girl.

After slapping himself on his forehead he sighed and replied,

"You avoid the yellow snow..." he said pointing to her boots now sunken in yellowish substance.

A Quote by Madeleine L'Engle on thinking, words, language, cognition, and concepts

We think because we have words, not the other way around. The more words we have, the better able we are to think conceptually.
