A special kind of beauty exists which is born in language, of language, and for language. ~ Gaston Bachelard
Language Culture quotes by Gaston Bachelard
Though music transcends language, culture and time, and though notes are the same, Indian music is unique because it is evolved, sophisticated and melodies are defined. ~ Dayananda Saraswati
Language Culture quotes by Dayananda Saraswati
Multiculturalism is really a suicide cult conceived by the western elites not to celebrate all cultures, but to deny their own. And that's particularly unworthy of the British, whose language, culture, and law have been the single greatest force for good in this world. ~ Mark Steyn
Language Culture quotes by Mark Steyn
We have to make movies where we do not think this is for the American market or this is for the Chinese market. We have to make a good movie that anyone would just want to sit down and watch because love, language, culture transcend everything. ~ Michelle Yeoh
Language Culture quotes by Michelle Yeoh
If you want to know what's important to a culture, learn their language. ~ Joanne Harris
Language Culture quotes by Joanne Harris
Language is power, life and the instrument of culture, the instrument of domination and liberation. ~ Angela Carter
Language Culture quotes by Angela Carter
great mysteries that the Poles have been able to keep their language, culture and religion alive despite inhabiting an area which has usually belonged to either Germany, Russia or Austria, or sometimes to all three. ~ Gordon Corrigan
Language Culture quotes by Gordon Corrigan
My mother have taught me that food is a universal passport. Whatever the constraints of language, culture or geography, food crosses over all boundaries. To offer food is to extend the hand of friendship; to accept is to be accepted into the most closed of communities. I ~ Joanne Harris
Language Culture quotes by Joanne Harris
Every people, in order to remain healthy and strong, has to have a grasp of its foundation story. Culture is a chrysalis - it is protective, it takes care of you. That's what cultures are for. You cannot rob a people of language, culture, mother, father, the value of their labor - all of that - without doing vast damage to those people. ~ Randall Robinson
Language Culture quotes by Randall Robinson
My idea here is that, inasmuch as certain cognitive tasks and principles are tied to nature's laws, these tasks and principles are indifferent to language, culture, gender, or the particular mode of information that is provided. ~ Edward Tufte
Language Culture quotes by Edward Tufte
A language is something infinitely greater than grammar and philology. It is the poetic testament of the genius of a race and a culture, and the living embodiment of the thoughts and fancies
that have moulded them ~ Jawaharlal Nehru
Language Culture quotes by Jawaharlal Nehru
Even though many Indians can read or speak English, for most, it is not their first language. At the office, we speak in English, but we consume our culture in our own language. ~ Amish Tripathi
Language Culture quotes by Amish Tripathi
More than ever, I feel that the human race is one. There are differences of colour, language, culture and opportunities, but people's feelings and reactions are alike. People flee wars to escape death, they migrate to improve their fortunes, they build new lives in foreign lands, they adapt to extreme hardship ... . ~ Sebastiao Salgado
Language Culture quotes by Sebastiao Salgado
While women across the globe have many differences - language, culture, environment - our similarities are undeniable, and the impact of abuse and oppression affects us all. ~ Carre Otis
Language Culture quotes by Carre Otis
Whoever lives in whichever state should learn the culture of thestate and its language. ~ Raj Thackeray
Language Culture quotes by Raj Thackeray
Absolutely nothing is so important for a nation's culture as its language. ~ Wilhelm Von Humboldt
Language Culture quotes by Wilhelm Von Humboldt
Let us teach our people again to be proud that they are Filipinos. Let us teach them to realize anew that being a Filipino means having as rich and noble a heritage of language, culture, patriotism and heroic deeds as any nation on earth. Let us teach a steadfast faith in Divine Providence, a stable family institution, the unhampered enjoyment of civil liberties, the advantages of constitutional government, the potentials of a rich and spacious land. ~ Carlos P. Romulo
Language Culture quotes by Carlos P. Romulo
It was one of those decisions you make when you have too much testosterone bubbling around in your system, or when you've been raised in a culture of ridiculous machismo, as I was. ~ Kevin Hearne
Language Culture quotes by Kevin Hearne
I assume the body language no matter what in doing voiceover. There is a transformative aspect. ~ Jennifer Hale
Language Culture quotes by Jennifer Hale
For me, at least, much of the German I see and hear sounds stranger than Swedish, a language of which I unfortunately understand very little. ~ Heinrich Boll
Language Culture quotes by Heinrich Boll
Nationality is the creative power of human culture, culture is the creative power of nationality. ~ A. C. Cuza
Language Culture quotes by A. C. Cuza
On the one hand, there is no question that English - frequently bad English - has become the universal language of scholarship. It is clearly a tremendous handicap for people outside of the United States, Britain, and Australia and a few other countries because few of them are native speakers, but we demand that they present and publish in English. ~ Henry Rosovsky
Language Culture quotes by Henry Rosovsky
You won't find a CEO who doesn't talk about a 'powerful culture' as a source of competitive advantage. At the same time, you'd be hard-pressed to find a CEO who has much of a clue about the strength of that culture. ~ Marcus Buckingham
Language Culture quotes by Marcus Buckingham
, Stanhope delayed a moment behind Miss Fox to add: "The substantive, of course, governs the adjective; not the other way round."
"The substantive?" Pauline asked blankly.
"Good. It contains terror, not terror good. I'm keeping you. Good-bye, Periel," and he was gone. ~ Charles Williams
Language Culture quotes by Charles Williams
That thing we call a place is the intersection of many changing forces passing through, whirling around, mixing, dissolving, and exploding in a fixed location. To write about a place is to acknowledge that phenomena often treated separately - ecology, democracy, culture, storytelling, urban design, individual life histories and collective endeavors - coexist. They coexist geographically, spatially, in place, and to understand a place is to engage with braided narratives and sue generous explorations. ~ Rebecca Solnit
Language Culture quotes by Rebecca Solnit
The reinvention of American culture as purely the self catapulted Las Vegas to prominence. The city took sin and made it choice
a sometimes ambiguous choice, but choice nonetheless. Combined with a visionary approach to experience that melded Hollywood and Americans' taste for comfort and self-deception, Las Vegas grew into the last American frontier city, as foreign at times as Prague but as quintessential as Peoria. In Las Vegas, you can choose your fantasy; in the rest of America, you don't always get to pick. ~ Hal Rothman
Language Culture quotes by Hal Rothman
An often-repeated assertion in the body of film criticism I have written is the assertion that movies do not just mirror the culture of any given time; they also create it. ~ Bell Hooks
Language Culture quotes by Bell Hooks
In places in the world where we don't speak the same language, or even understand that we pray to the same God, we dance to the same beat, that is the ONE. ~ Debbie Allen
Language Culture quotes by Debbie Allen
Most of culture lies hidden and is outside
voluntary control, making up the warp and weft of human existence. Even when small fragments of culture are elevated to awareness, they are difficult to change, not only because they are so personally experienced but because people cannot
act or interact at all in any meaningful way except through the medium of culture. ~ Edward T. Hall
Language Culture quotes by Edward T. Hall
The colored hobo and now Junior Rabbit had told us, 'Be ready to compete but be ready to fight too or you may not get a chance to compete'. ~ Clarence Hunter
Language Culture quotes by Clarence Hunter
Pride, ill nature, and want of sense are the three great sources of ill manners; without some one of these defects, no man will behave himself ill for want of experience, or what, in the language of fools, is called knowing the world. ~ Jonathan Swift
Language Culture quotes by Jonathan Swift
Quite a lot of our contemporary culture is actually shot through with a resentment of limits and the passage of time, anger at what we can't do, fear or even disgust at growing old. ~ Rowan Williams
Language Culture quotes by Rowan Williams
So American culture is itself a hybrid and lends itself to use in other people's hybrids. ~ Todd Gitlin
Language Culture quotes by Todd Gitlin
He whose thoughts, like skylarks, Toward the morning sky take flight - Who hovers over life and understands with ease The language of flowers and silent things! ~ Charles Baudelaire
Language Culture quotes by Charles Baudelaire
There seems to be an audience that demands everything be explained to them that everything be easy. And I don t think that s doing us any good as a culture. The ease with which we can accomplish or conjure any possible imaginable scenario through CGI is almost directly proportionate to how uninterested we re becoming in all of this. I can remember Ray Harryhausen s animated skeletons in Jason and the Argonauts. I can remember Willis O Brien s King Kong. I can remember being awed at the artistry that had made those things possible. Yes I knew how it was done. But it looked so wonderful. These days I can see half a million Orcs coming over a hill and I am bored. I am not impressed at all. Because frankly I could have gotten someone a passerby on the street who could have gotten the same effect if you d given them half a million dollars to do it. It removes artistry and imagination and places money in the driver s seat and I think it s a pretty straight equation - that there is an inverse relationship between money and imagination. ~ Alan Moore
Language Culture quotes by Alan Moore
We get inundated with so many messages about belief, about what is true and what is not, from both our families and our culture, and it's crucial that every single one of us come to our own well-excavated understanding. ~ Rainn Wilson
Language Culture quotes by Rainn Wilson
When Toots finally could breathe again and the blood returned to his brain, he recalled that he had not passed or been passed by Jackie at any time in the race. Toots never used foul language but he came close that night. Jackie paid. ~ Audrey Meadows
Language Culture quotes by Audrey Meadows
Do I have any recommendations for a Sadiri boys' night out?" I shrugged, smiled, and allowed myself a laugh. "I can come up with something."
I did, too. The Ministry of Culture has all kinds of programmes, and I got someone to put together a package that even the Sadiri might enjoy. But people, this is Cygnus Beta. Yes, we have a few large cities and several towns
we're not all country bumpkins, vagabonds and adventurers
but there are few professional artists and actors, few galactic-standard museums and theatres. We simply can't afford them. ~ Karen Lord
Language Culture quotes by Karen Lord
Every form of power comes down to language. In law, there's all kinds of words you don't know if you're not a lawyer and that gives them power. In business, it's the same thing. ~ Tony Robbins
Language Culture quotes by Tony Robbins
I would like to spend more time with Spanish poetry. I know French better than Spanish, but Spanish was my first language, and my father spoke it to us. ~ Helen Vendler
Language Culture quotes by Helen Vendler
Paradoxically, our imperial global Anglo-American language is dull with the glitter of its own decay. In response, the new meta- physical poet might consider the following cleansing strategies: keep faith with the canonical writers of the past, study Homeric Greek, excavate etymologies, embrace threatened languages, practice the fine art of translation, listen regularly to the musical flow of the breath and the beat of the heart, switch off the television, become a votary of silence.
Here lies the beginning of freedom. ~ Peter Abbs
Language Culture quotes by Peter Abbs
We live in a culture that doesn't acknowledge or validate human intuition and doesn't encourage us to rely on our intuitive wisdom. ~ Shakti Gawain
Language Culture quotes by Shakti Gawain
Music is a language and different people who come along are each using that language to do something different, but all coming at it in a similar vein inasmuch as it's always community based and for the most part nonprofit. Most bands don't ever come within a mile of profit - clearly these people are not playing music to make money. ~ Ian MacKaye
Language Culture quotes by Ian MacKaye
My culture comes from everywhere. I'm sick of this notion of nationality, that if you're brought up in the same city or same country you're the same. Even three kids brought up in the same family with the same genes, they are not the same. Just consider a human a human. ~ Marjane Satrapi
Language Culture quotes by Marjane Satrapi
It frequently happens that when the dominant culture loses a vision or actively suppresses it, this lost knowledge arises again among those excluded from that culture. ~ Kim Chernin
Language Culture quotes by Kim Chernin
The properties of executability and universality associated with programming languages can be combined, in a single language, with the well-known properties of mathematical notation which make it such an effective tool of thought. ~ Kenneth E. Iverson
Language Culture quotes by Kenneth E. Iverson
The chief function of the city is to convert power into form, energy into culture, dead matter into the living symbols of art, biological reproduction into social creativity. ~ Lewis Mumford
Language Culture quotes by Lewis Mumford
You travel to lush looted countries. parts of earth laying on their sides. barely breathing. hot with rust, infection, and tourist anemia. you and your camera arrive. start tearing at bodies with your lust. it's harmless. appreciating culture. sharing. honoring clothing. the way certain skin exists. ~ Nayyirah Waheed
Language Culture quotes by Nayyirah Waheed
I met evil and discovered God. I call it my discovery, but of course, it's nothing new, and it's not mine. Everyone has to make it for himself. People use different language to describe it. I suppose all the great world religions began with individuals making inspired contact with a spiritual reality and then trying to keep that knowledge alive. Most of it gets lost in rules and practices and addiction to power. That's how religions are. In the end though it hardly matters how you describe it once the essential truth has been grasped – that we have within us an infinite resource, a potential for a higher state of being, a goodness . . .' I had heard this before, in one form or another, from a spiritually inclined headmaster, a dissident vicar, an old girlfriend returning from India, from Californian professionals, and dazed hippies. ~ Ian McEwan
Language Culture quotes by Ian McEwan
I read an article once that said that when women have a conversation, they're communicating on five levels. They follow the conversation that they're actually having, the conversation that is specifically being avoided, the tone being applied to the overt conversation, the buried conversation that is being covered only in subtext, and finally the other person's body language.
That is, on many levels, astounding to me. I mean, that's like having a freaking superpower. When I, and most other people with a Y chromosome, have a conversation, we're having a conversation. Singular. We're paying attention to what is being said, considering that, and replying to it. All these other conversations that have apparently been booing on for the last several thousand years? I didn't even know that they existed until I read that stupid article, and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one.
So, ladies, if you ever have some conversation with your boyfriend or husband or brother or male friend, and you are telling him something perfectly obvious, and he comes away from it utterly clueless? I know it's tempting to thing to yourself, 'The man can't possibly be that stupid!'
But yes. Yes, he can.
Our innate strengths just aren't the same. We are the mighty hunters, who are good at focusing on one thing at a time. For crying out loud, we have to turn down the radio in the car if we suspect we're lost and need to figure out how to get where we're going. That's how impair ~ Jim Butcher
Language Culture quotes by Jim Butcher
Python has been an important part of Google since the beginning, and remains so as the system grows and evolves. Today dozens of Google engineers use Python, and we're looking for more people with skills in this language. ~ Peter Norvig
