#1. Dealing with my French teacher is one thing; she wears pants with little whales on them. But I was convinced Dr. Rothaus could smell a lie from ten words away. I found myself feeling sorry for any children she might have. I imagined them as shadowy figures with excellent posture and skill at declamation. - Author: Melissa Jensen
Ten Words quotes by Melissa Jensen
#2. BASICS OF DIET AND HEALTH The basic principles of good diets are so simple that I can summarize them in just ten words: eat less, move more, eat lots of fruits and vegetables. For additional clarification, a five-word modifier helps: go easy on junk foods. - Author: Marion Nestle
Ten Words quotes by Marion Nestle
#3. If you can express yourself so as to be perfectly understood in ten words, never use a dozen. - Author: Horace Mann
Ten Words quotes by Horace Mann
#4. Film and television have convinced too many writers that heaps of dialogue make novels more like movies and therefore good. This is an amateur's fantasy, and it has induced some writers to surrender the few advantages they have over cinematic storytelling. The moviemaker is stuck with what the camera can see and the microphone can hear. You have more freedom. You can summarize situations. You can forthrightly give us people's histories. You can concentrate ten years into ten words. You can move anywhere you like outside real time. You can tell us - just tell us - what people are thinking and feeling. Yes, abundant dialogue can lighten a story, make it more readable and sparkle with wonders. But it is pitiably inadequate before what it is not suited to do. - Author: Stephen Koch
Ten Words quotes by Stephen Koch
#5. If a thing can be said in ten words, I may be relied upon to take a hundred to say it. I ought to apologize for that. I ought to prune, pare and extirpate excess growth, but I will not. I like words - strike that, I love words - and while I am fond of the condensed and economical use of them in poetry, in song lyrics, in Twitter, in good journalism and smart advertising, I love the luxuriant profusion and mad scatter of them too. - Author: Stephen Fry
Ten Words quotes by Stephen Fry
#6. A man never feels more important than when he receives a telegram containing more than ten words. - Author: George Ade
Ten Words quotes by George Ade
#7. As names have power, words have power. Words can light fires in the minds of men. Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts. There are seven words that will make a person love you. There are ten words that will break a strong man's will. But a word is nothing but a painting of a fire. A name is the fire itself. - Author: Patrick Rothfuss
Ten Words quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#8. Disconnect yourself from people who cannot add five to your ten words, because, sooner or later, you won't be able to say even a word. - Author: Michael Bassey Johnson
Ten Words quotes by Michael Bassey Johnson
#9. The single most important technique for making progress is to write ten words. Doesn't matter if you're badly stuck, or your day is completely jam-packed, or you're away from your computer - carry a small paper notebook and write a sentence of description while you're waiting on line at a coffee shop. I think of this as baiting a hook. Even if you have a few days in a row where nothing comes except those ten words, I find that as long as you have to think about the novel enough to write ten words, the chances are that more will come. - Author: Naomi Novik
Ten Words quotes by Naomi Novik
#10. A chronic poet should always be an inveterate nature-lover. - Author: Munia Khan
Ten Words quotes by Munia Khan
#11. A manager should stay as far away as possible from his players. I don't know if I said ten words to Frank Robinson while he played for me. - Author: Earl Weaver
Ten Words quotes by Earl Weaver
#12. I began writing eight or ten words of my own on a sheet of paper, in very large letters that I could read without any trouble. I did that for over a month, filling a couple of small, dime-store writing tablets. Then suddenly I quit. For no particular reason. Chiefly, I was saddened by my own ignorance, I think. Then, too, I was a little afraid I was going blind. There's never just one reason for anything. But, anyway, I quit. - Author: J.D. Salinger
Ten Words quotes by J.D. Salinger
#13. It was the kind of closeness that didn't need conversation to sustain itself: quite often we would meet, travel to the gym, work out on the weights, box a few rounds, spend half an hour sparring at karate, and speak no more than ten words to one another. - Author: Gregory David Roberts
Ten Words quotes by Gregory David Roberts
#14. The Austrian writer Robert Musil summed up the Fanatic's great rhetorical advantage in just ten words:

There is no truth which stupidity can't make use of.

Another Austrian, novelist Heimito von Doderer, put this way:

Even the most impossible persons who do the most unforgivable things possess substantial reality; from their points of view they are always right – for let them only doubt that and they are no longer such impossible persons. And we must pay close heed to those who play such ungrateful roles, for these roles are indispensable. It is no small thing to be a monster or a spiteful idiot, and in the first case to think oneself beautiful, in the second a highly intelligent person. Such characters must be represented. Some one has to do it. - Author: David James Duncan
Ten Words quotes by David James Duncan
#15. In three words I can sum up all that I've learned about: It goes on. - Author: Jessi Kirby

#17. I felt it was for this I had come: to wake at dawn on a hillside and look out on a world for which I had no words, to start at the beginning, speechless and without plan, in a place that still had no memories for me. - Author: Laurie Lee
Ten Words quotes by Laurie Lee
#18. Numbers and maps tell horror stories, but the stories of deepest horror are perhaps those for which there are no numbers, no maps, no possible accountability, no words ever written or spoken. - Author: Valeria Luiselli
Ten Words quotes by Valeria Luiselli
#19. The next time you feel rejection's sting, remember God's words to Samuel: "It is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me." (1 Sam. 8:7) - Author: Beth Moore
Ten Words quotes by Beth Moore
#20. Heavenly Father, I live my life for your glory. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Ten Words quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#21. I wake sometimes in the dark terrified by my life's precariousness, its thready breath. Beside me, my husband's pulse beats at his throat; in their beds, my children's skin shows every faintest scratch. A breeze would blow them over, and the world is filled with more than breezes: diseases and disasters, monsters and pain in a thousand variations. I do not forget either my father and his kind hanging over us, bright and sharp as swords, aimed at our tearing flesh. If they do not fall on us in spite and malice, then they will fall by accident or whim. My breath fights in my throat. How can I live on beneath such a burden of doom? I rise then and go to my herbs. I create something, I transform something. My witchcraft is as strong as ever, stronger. This too is good fortune. How many have such power and leisure and defense as I do? Telemachus comes from our bed to find me. He sits with me in the greensmelling darkness, holding my hand. Our faces are both lined now, marked with our years. Circe, he says, it will be all right. It is not the saying of an oracle or a prophet. They are words you might speak to a child. I have heard him say them to our daughters, when he rocked them back to sleep from a nightmare, when he dressed their small cuts, soothed whatever stung. His skin is familiar as my own beneath my fingers. I listen to his breath, warm upon the night air, and somehow I am comforted. He does not mean it does not hurt. He does not mean we are not frightened. Only that: we - Author: Madeline Miller
Ten Words quotes by Madeline Miller
#22. For some women, they need a man.
For others, men need them. - Author: Nikki Rowe
Ten Words quotes by Nikki Rowe
#23. People have founded vast schemes upon a very few words. - Author: Florence Nightingale
Ten Words quotes by Florence Nightingale
#24. Tommy cocooned me in his arms. The same arms that struck out to protect me, the arms that saved me.
"In my life, I have never known, nor will I ever know, someone as strong and courageous as you, Elizabeth Irene Bradshaw," Tommy whispers against my temple. I have no words, so I nod my head against his chest, hoping he understands my acceptance of his praise. "You honour me with your trust, baby girl. I am so very proud of you. - Author: Maggi Myers
Ten Words quotes by Maggi Myers
#25. None of us had been in love, not really, until now. Anything we had called love came back to us as mockery in the face of this sudden flight from reason. Andy had said he was in love with Missy, and it was a shame Missy was not in love with him. A daily lament rose from him like the steam of the heat from the pipes at school. Andy's mother hit the counter with her fist. "They're too young," she said, talking about Natalie and Dion, and we knew she was talking about their tongues running along the inside of each other's teeth and the suddenly anxious too-tight grip of her hand between his legs, and the taste of each other's skin, and the smell of each other's bodies, and the feel of him slipping inside her and her settling down over him, the shape of her mouth, the shape of his. She was talking about their bodies but thinking about the words they had used. Everyone knew. "Love," she finally growled, as if the creature itself had risen from her dreams to take over her kitchen. She gripped a package of spaghetti as if it was a club and stared at the wall, paralyzed by the idea of them out there. - Author: Jason Brown
Ten Words quotes by Jason Brown
#26. He was searching for words to name his meaning without naming it, she thought, to make her understand that which he did not want to be understood. - Author: Ayn Rand
Ten Words quotes by Ayn Rand
#27. I usually can't stop babbling, just to fill space, but with Julienne, I can see the appeal of just being. Julienne is quiet, obviously, but that's because she can say what she means to in so few words. She has a commanding presence that's hard to ignore. Julienne doesn't seem to feel the same urgency other people do. Everyone else, myself included, is constantly vying for a space to occupy, just for the sake of it. But when Julienne does share, it's incredible. She has an actual opinion on everything, not just something to say, and I want to hear about all of them. - Author: Pega Rose
Ten Words quotes by Pega Rose
#28. In The End The Words Are The All And The Nothing. - Author: R.M. Engelhardt
Ten Words quotes by R.M. Engelhardt
#29. I have to resort to email, and email is not enough. I am starting to get tired of relying on words. They are full of meaning, yes, but they lack sensation. Writing to her is not the same as seeing her face as she listens. Hearing back from her is not the same as hearing her voice. - Author: David Levithan
Ten Words quotes by David Levithan
#30. To test whether you have learned an idea or a definition, rephrase what you just learned without using the new word. - Author: Richard P. Feynman
Ten Words quotes by Richard P. Feynman
#31. Few words have been misunderstood more than "love," perhaps with the exception of "God - Author: Akemi G
Ten Words quotes by Akemi G

Ten Words quotes by Lauren Myracle
#33. The average college graduate's proficient literacy in English [the ability to read lengthy, complex texts and draw complicated inferences] has declined from 40 percent in 1992 to 31 percent ten years later. - Author: Charles Colson
Ten Words quotes by Charles Colson
#34. To kill for murder is a punishment incomparably worse than the crime itself. Murder by legal sentence is immeasurably more terrible than murder by brigands. Anyone murdered by brigands, whose throat is cut at night in a wood, or something of that sort, must surely hope to escape till the very last minute. There have been instances when a man has still hoped for escape, running or begging for mercy after his throat was cut. But in the other case all that last hope, which makes dying ten times as easy, is taken away for certain. There is the sentence, and the whole awful torture lies in the fact that there is certainly no escape, and there is no torture in the world more terrible. - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Ten Words quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#35. Boldly walk on own path. You will find your treasure. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Ten Words quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#36. The third boat was quite pretty, too ... this one was an Adirondack fishing boat, and even though it was only half finished, I could picture Jay Gatsby in it, casting a line over the side while he yearned for that shallow tramp, Daisy. - Author: Kristan Higgins
Ten Words quotes by Kristan Higgins
#37. I've got a stele we can use. Who wants to do me?"
"A regrettable choice of words," muttered Magnus. - Author: Cassandra Clare
Ten Words quotes by Cassandra Clare
#38. To do nothing is sometimes a good remedy. - Author: Hippocrates
Ten Words quotes by Hippocrates
#39. When the middle classes get passionate about politics, they're arguing about their treats - their tax breaks and their investments. When the poor get passionate about politics, they're fighting for their lives.
Politics will always mean more to the poor. Always. That's why we strike and march, and despair when our young say they won't vote. That's why the poor are seen as more vital, more animalistic. No classical music for us - no walking around National Trust properties or buying reclaimed flooring. We don't have nostalgia. We don't do yesterday. We can't bear it. We don't want to be reminded of our past, because it was awful: dying in means, and slums, without literacy, or the vote. Without dignity. It was all so desperate then. That's why the present and the future is for the poor - that's the place in time for us: surviving now, hoping for better later. We live now - for our instant, hot, fast treats, to pep us up: sugar, a cigarette, a new fast song on the radio.
You must never, never forget when you talk to someone poor, that it takes ten times the effort to get anywhere from a bad post code. It's a miracle when someone from a bad post code gets anywhere, son. A miracle they do anything at all. - Author: Caitlin Moran
Ten Words quotes by Caitlin Moran
#40. I wrapped my arms around him and held on as hard as I could. He was my tormentor and my solace: the creator of the dark and the light within. I didn't care that he would undoubtedly hurt me at any moment, right now; I just needed somebody to hold me ... To tell me these exact words. Its going to be okay. It wasn't of course, I knew that. But I didn't care, I needed the lie. - Author: C.J. Roberts
Ten Words quotes by C.J. Roberts
#41. Sometimes I wish I could go back to being ten years old. Even just for a day. Everything was easier then. - Author: Brandy Colbert
Ten Words quotes by Brandy Colbert
#42. Well, I've already got ten thousand set aside. That's a good start. If you think about it when we get home, give me your Social and next time I drop by the bank, I'll open an account in your name, okay? - Author: Donna Tartt
Ten Words quotes by Donna Tartt
#43. Lily says nothing as she heads to bed. But then she looks at me and says, 'You sound just like Ma,' before switching off the lights and plunging us into darkness. I'm left frozen by her words. I was wrong. Because as it turns out, that's the ultimate diss in our family. - Author: Wai Chim
Ten Words quotes by Wai Chim
#44. I heard words
and words full
of holes
aching. - Author: Robert Creeley
