Talk - Quotes

 TimeFavorites

It`s often just enough to be with someone. I don`t need to touch them. Not even talk. A feeling passes between you both. You`re not alone.

Marilyn Monroe

We spend the first twelve months of our children`s lives teaching them to walk and talk and the next twelve telling them to sit down and shut up.

Phyllis Diller

One of the big reliefs for the atheist is not having to worry about what to hope, wish, and pray for. Did I want to pray for my mother`s suffering to end? Did I want to hope for her death? I didn`t have to worry about that. I could hope one day that she`d live longer so I could talk to her, and wish the next day that she would die and not have to suffer her paralysis and physical loss any longer. My wishing and hoping were inert; I could let them run wild. I could use them as pure solace.

Penn Jillette

Why is it when we talk to God, we`re praying, but when God talks to us, we`re schizophrenic?

Lily Tomlin

We live in a society where people are uncomfortable with not knowing. Children aren`t taught to say "I don`t know," and honesty in this form is rarely modeled for them. They too often see adults avoiding questions and fabricating answers, out of either embarrassment or fear, and this comes at a price. When children are embarrassed by or afraid of the feeling of not knowing, they are preoccupied with escaping their discomfort, rather than being motivated to learn. This robs them of the joy of curiosity. Let`s celebrate the feelings of awe and wonder in our children, as the foundation for all learning. Let`s teach children to say "I don`t know" and help them understand the power behind it. Let`s talk to them about how it feels to not know something. And, finally, let`s be honest with children about the limits of our own knowledge.

Annaka Harris

There are a few rules I know to be true about love and marriage: If you don`t respect the other person, you`re gonna have a lot of trouble. If you don`t know how to compromise, you`re gonna have a lot of trouble. If you can`t talk openly about what goes on between you, you`re gonna have a lot of trouble. And if you don`t have a common set of values in life, you`re gonna have a lot of trouble. Your values must be alike.

Morrie Schwartz

Give a man a fish, and you`ll feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he`ll buy a funny hat. Talk to a hungry man about fish, and you`re a consultant.

Scott Adams

People talk about books that write themselves, and it`s a lie. Books don`t write themselves. It takes thought and research and backache and notes and more time and more work than you`d believe.

Neil Gaiman

Talk is free, [...] but the wise man chooses when to spend his words.

Neil Gaiman

I think computer viruses should count as life. Maybe it says something about human nature, that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. Talk about creating life in our own image.

Stephen Hawking

I should not talk so much about myself if there were anybody else whom I knew as well.

Henry David Thoreau

You know how women talk about having babies? This one had an easy delivery, this one had it hard? [...] Death is like that, too.
