Learn to write by doing it. Read widely and wisely. Increase your word power. Find your own individual voice though practicing constantly. Go through the world with your eyes and ears open and learn to express that experience in words. ~ P.D. James
Word Power quotes by P.D. James
Our work has only begun. In our time we have an historic opportunity to shape a global balance of power that favors freedom and that will therefore deepen and extend the peace. And I use the word power broadly, because even more important than military and indeed economic power is the power of ideas, the power of compassion, and the power of hope. ~ Condoleezza Rice
Word Power quotes by Condoleezza Rice
The word power has such a generally negative implication in our society. What are people talking about? Are they talking about muscles, or control? ~ James Hillman
Word Power quotes by James Hillman
The word power typically signifies a capacity for action. The Oxford English Dictionary tells us power lies in an 'ability to do or effect something or anything, or to act upon a person or thing'. The person who has power may influence the material or social environment, generally on the basis of possessing high-tech weapons, money, oil, superior intelligence or large muscles. In war, I am powerful because I can blow up your city walls or drop bombs on your airfields. In the financial world, I am powerful because I can buy up your shares and invade your markets. In boxing, I am ,ore powerful because my punches outwit and exhaust yours. But in love, this issue appears to depend on a far more passive, negative definition; instead of looking at power as a capacity to do something, one may come to think of it as the capacity to do nothing. ~ Alain De Botton
Word Power quotes by Alain De Botton
He who would enrich and enlarge his stock of words must soak and tan his mind constantly in the vats of literature. ~ Dale Carnegie
Word Power quotes by Dale Carnegie
This book will prove the following ten facts:
1. A Goon is a being who melts into the foreground and sticks there.
2. Pigs have wings, making them hard to catch.
3. All power corrupts, but we need electricity.
4. When an irresistible force meets an immovable object, the result is a family fight.
5. Music does not always sooth the troubled beast.
6. An Englishman's home is his castle.
7. The female of the species is more deadly than the male.
8. One black eye deserves another.
9. Space is the final frontier, and so is the sewage farm.
10. It pays to increase your word power. ~ Diana Wynne Jones
Word Power quotes by Diana Wynne Jones
I think of that word, power, and what it means. It means you feed your people, you help the world. I never understood what else there was to it ~ Linda Hogan
Word Power quotes by Linda Hogan
One word: power.
The more politicians can control your access to your own wealth and earnings, the more powerful they are. The more politicians can affect businesses and important business decisions with tax policy, the more powerful they are. The more they can adversely affect the financial picture of one segment of our economy for the benefit of another, the more powerful they are. The more politicians can pander to the petty fears and jealousies of people by punishing high achievers for their efforts, the more powerful they are. ~ Neal Boortz
Word Power quotes by Neal Boortz
I'd worked at the White House for two years, and I'd read a bunch of White House memoirs because everybody who works at the White House, even for five minutes, writes a memoir usually not less than 600 pages long - and never without the word 'power' in the title. ~ Christopher Buckley
Word Power quotes by Christopher Buckley
The creation by word-power of something out of nothing
what is that but magic? And, may I add, what is that but literature? ~ Aldous Huxley
Word Power quotes by Aldous Huxley
It is as important to cultivate your silence power as your word power. ~ William James
Word Power quotes by William James
Dr. Flint had sworn that he would make me suffer, to my last day, for this new crime against him, as he called it; and as long as he had me in his power he kept his word. ~ Harriet Ann Jacobs
Word Power quotes by Harriet Ann Jacobs
This suspension of one's own reality, this being entirely alone in a strange city (at times I wondered if I had lost the power of speech) is an enriching state for a writer. Then the written word ... takes on an intensity of its own. Nothing gets exteriorized or dissipated; all is concentrated within. ~ May Sarton
Word Power quotes by May Sarton
Whether you realize it or not, you have the power to be successful. ~ David Cottrell
Word Power quotes by David Cottrell
PLENIPOTENTIARY, adj. Having full power. A Minister Plenipotentiary is a diplomatist possessing absolute authority on condition that he never exert it. ~ Ambrose Bierce
Word Power quotes by Ambrose Bierce
Black Power is giving power to people who have not had power to determine their destiny. ~ Huey Newton
Word Power quotes by Huey Newton
That was clearly surprising, interesting - a very interesting milestone was when you can pick up a magazine and read an article about some sort of computer related thing and they mention the word internet without explaining it. ~ Jon Postel
Word Power quotes by Jon Postel
The funny thing about mundies is how obsessed with magic they are for a bunch of people who don't even know what the word means. ~ Cassandra Clare
Word Power quotes by Cassandra Clare
Lucifer, the most beautiful angel of all time,became so enamored with his own beauty and power that he came to believe his light was greater than the Almighty ... ~ Melissa De La Cruz
Word Power quotes by Melissa De La Cruz
Women are creatures that accomplishes staggering tasks. They seek perfection, accommodation, and completion in their tasks. This is why it is valid to put your faith in a woman if you need to get a job done. Vision however, is what they lack. Imagination, is where they are weak. Possibility, is what they attempt to ignore. This is when you get a boy or a man, for they have the power to truly dream. A man understands that you can turn a dream into reality, and that time is a luxury, not an obstacle. ~ Lionel Suggs
Word Power quotes by Lionel Suggs
I have found great power in taking my 'difference' out for a spin in a very public way. And usually, the worst, most personally embarrassing thing you imagine in your mind is often not anywhere near as bad in real life. ~ Aimee Mullins
Word Power quotes by Aimee Mullins
Have you ever attempted to organize something like peace? The moment you do, you have power conflicts and group wars within the organization. The only way to have peace is to let it grow wild. ~ Anthony De Mello
Word Power quotes by Anthony De Mello
These word-stringers make nothing, grow nothing, kill no enemies, catch no fish, and raise no cattle. They just take silver in exchange for words, which are free anyway. It is a clever trick, but in truth they are about as much use as priests. ~ Bernard Cornwell
Word Power quotes by Bernard Cornwell
I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that l the power of Christ may rest upon me. ~ Anonymous
Word Power quotes by Anonymous
Too many of us dissipate our energy by being 'for all good causes,' attending meetings and passing resolutions, organizing and presenting petitions - all this effort to change others, when if we really got down to it we could use this energy to change ourselves ... We become tired radicals because we use our weakest weapon: the ballot box, where we are always outnumbered, and refuse to use our strongest weapon: spiritual power. ~ Ammon Hennacy
Word Power quotes by Ammon Hennacy
Black power is organizing the rage of Black people and putting new hard questions and demands to white America. ~ Charles Hamilton Houston
Word Power quotes by Charles Hamilton Houston
Derisively, Ronan said, 'No. The ancient Greeks didn't have a word for Blue.'
Everyone at the table looked at him.
'What the hell, Ronan?' said Adam.
'It's hard to imagine," Gansey mused, 'how this evidently successful classical education never seems to make it into your school papers.'
'They never ask the right questions,' Ronan replied. ~ Maggie Stiefvater
Word Power quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
The power you have is to be the best version of yourself you can be, so you can create a better world. ~ Ashley Rickards
Word Power quotes by Ashley Rickards
How does one use power to do good, when wielding power requires one to do evil ? ~ Niccolo Machiavelli
Word Power quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
Conversion, EVERYTHING, including yourself, gets turned around. Transformed.'
'What happens if you turn FROM one, but can't fully turn TO the other?' I cried. 'Tell me, Michael, is there a word for being eternally, pathetically, insurmountably 'stuck'?' I paused, searching for the right words, the words that would convey exactly how my soul ached but could not quite leap. They were evading me...Is there a word for wanting to forget this God and Jesus and the whole mess? For wanting to forget it ALL?' I pinned him with my eyes.
'Despair,' he reminded me, draining his glass. ~ Carolyn Weber
Word Power quotes by Carolyn Weber
Clout is something some seem to have-until they try exercising it. ~ Malcolm Forbes
Word Power quotes by Malcolm Forbes
Young as I was, I still wondered what kind of man this was who, with one leg bandaged, could quell a room full of rough men with a look or a word. ~ Robin Hobb
Word Power quotes by Robin Hobb
The number one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S. ~ Joe Biden
Word Power quotes by Joe Biden
This assumption of the intrinsically repressive nature of collective experience and redemptive power of individuation is a staple of contemporary art theory and criticism. I would argue that a closer analysis of collaborative and collective art practices can reveal a more complex model of social change and identity, one in which the binary oppositions of divided vs. coherent subjectivity, desiring singularity vs. totalizing collective, liberating distanciation vs. stultifying interdependence, are challenged and complicated. ~ Grant H. Kester
Word Power quotes by Grant H. Kester
So no, excuse me, we will not play likability anymore. It's an endless runner - a game with no progress and no finish line - that women are expected to chase, that keeps us from doing the real work, accruing the real power. Chasing likability has been one of women's biggest setbacks, by design. I don't know that rejecting likability will get us anywhere, but I know that embracing it has gotten us nowhere. ~ Lindy West
Word Power quotes by Lindy West
Wherever the early Christians entered a town the power structure got disturbed and immediately sought to convict them for being 'disturbers of the peace' and 'outside agitators.' But they went on with the conviction that they were a 'colony of heaven' and had to obey God rather than man. They were small in number but big in commitment. They were too God-intoxicated to be 'astronomically intimidated.' They brought an end to such ancient evils as infanticide and gladiatorial contest. Things are different now. The contemporary Church is so often a weak, ineffectual voice with an uncertain sound. It is so often the archsupporter of the status quo. Far from being disturbed by the presence of the Church, the power structure of the average community is consoled by the Church's silent and often vocal sanction of things as they are. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
Word Power quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
I have a horror of the word 'flesh', which has become so shopworn.Why not 'meat'whilethey're about it? What I like is skin, a young girl's skin that is pink and shows that she has a good circulation. ~ Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Word Power quotes by Pierre-Auguste Renoir
If you have the FAITH to believe it, you have the POWER to conceive it! ~ T.D. Jakes
Word Power quotes by T.D. Jakes
Sorry, I said to myself, wondering how many times in my marriage I'd said that, how many times I'd meant it, how many times Claire had actually believed it, and, most important, how many times the utterance had any impact whatsoever on our dispute. What a lovely chart one could draw of this word Sorry. ~ Ben Marcus
Word Power quotes by Ben Marcus
I'm not wild ... pussy," I said, stumbling over the last word and feeling my face heat. Desperately, I tried searching for a word that adequately described exactly what I was and came up empty. "I'm ... dusty pussy," I finished with a sigh, feeling ridiculous. ~ Madeline Sheehan
Word Power quotes by Madeline Sheehan
The attractive idea that we can now have a parliament of man with authority to control the conduct of nations by legislation or an international police force with power to enforce national conformity to rules of right conduct is a counsel of perfection. ~ Elihu Root
Word Power quotes by Elihu Root
How do evil, death and deception find power over the Motilone people?' I asked.
"Through the ears,' Bobby answered, because language is so important to the Motilones. It is the essence of life. If evil language comes through the ears, it means death. ~ Bruce Olson
Word Power quotes by Bruce Olson
Nabokov, who I loved more than any other writer when I was young, had such contempt for dialogue. When I was younger, I never wrote a word of dialogue because of him. I thought it was a childish part of a novel. ~ Zadie Smith
Word Power quotes by Zadie Smith
I understood the power of Heinz since I was a kid, and I started to work for my father selling food to restaurants. ~ Nelson Peltz
Word Power quotes by Nelson Peltz
Human love, now even more than then, is widely tasked with achieving what once only divine love was thought capable of: to be our ultimate source of meaning and happiness, and of power over suffering and disappointment. ~ Simon May
Word Power quotes by Simon May
The Christian community, therefore, is that community that freely becomes oppressed, because they know that Jesus himself has defined humanity's liberation in the context of what happens to the little ones. Christians join the cause of the oppressed in the fight for justice not because of some philosophical principle of "the Good" or because of a religious feeling of sympathy for people in prison. Sympathy does not change the structures of injustice. The authentic identity of Christians with the poor is found in the claim which the Jesus-encounter lays upon their own life-style, a claim that connects the word "Christian" with the liberation of the poor. Christians fight not for humanity in general but for themselves and out of their love for concrete human beings. ~ James H. Cone
Word Power quotes by James H. Cone
Aaron opened his mouth, closed it again, and fixed Nicky with an annoyed look. "You're explaining this to Andrew when he gets back." "Oh, hell no," Nicky said, and jerked a thumb at Neil. "I'mma leave that one to him. Thanks for taking one for the team, Neil. You're a real friend." Nicky grinned over at Neil, but his amusement didn't last. He seemed confused by whatever he saw on Neil's face and backpedaled with, "Don't worry, we'll send Renee along with you for backup. Last I checked Andrew only wins half their fights, so you might actually survive. Uh. Neil?" He should just let it go, or at least leave it to think about later, but Neil couldn't resist. "Are we?" he asked, because hadn't Betsy said it just a few days ago? He hadn't understood it then and hadn't even tried, too angry and upset over everything else that was happening. Tonight it almost meant something, though what, Neil didn't know. Realizing Nicky couldn't follow his twisting train of thought, Neil forced himself to say, "Friends?" It was like that one word punched all the joy out of Nicky, but the look that crossed Nicky's face next was too fast for Neil to decipher. Nicky's smile was back a second later, but it didn't reach his eyes. Neil might have apologized, except Nicky reached out and scrubbed a gloved hand through Neil's hair. "You are going to be the absolute death of me," Nicky said. "Yeah, kid. We're friends. You're stuck with us, like it or not. ~ Nora Sakavic
Word Power quotes by Nora Sakavic
If you want to be a slave in life, then continue going around asking others to do for you. They will oblige, but you will find the price is your choices, your freedom, your life itself. They will do for you, and as a result you will be in bondage to them forever, having given your identity away for a paltry price. Then, and only then, you will be a nobody, a slave, because you yourself and nobody else made it so. ~ Terry Goodkind
Word Power quotes by Terry Goodkind
Upon a given body to generate and superinduce a new nature or new natures is the work and aim of human power. To discover the Form of a given nature, or its true difference, or its causal nature, or fount of its emanation ... this is the work and aim of human knowledge. ~ Francis Bacon
Word Power quotes by Francis Bacon
Tell me what was said," she prompted.
"I informed Mr. Swift quite sternly that I will not allow anyone to make Daisy unhappy. And I demanded that he give me his word not to marry her."
"Oh, thank God," Lillian said with a sigh of relief.
"He refused."
"He what?" Her mouth fell open in astonishment. "But no one refuses you."
"Apparently Mr. Swift wasn't told about that," he said. ~ Lisa Kleypas
Word Power quotes by Lisa Kleypas
Don't say that word!" Raine cringed.
"What, c**t?" I laughed. "Why not?"
"It's foul."
"So am I," I reminded her. ~ Shay Savage
Word Power quotes by Shay Savage
Who can estimate the real wealth that inheres in a fine character ... How base and mean money and huge estates look in comparison. All other things fade before it. Its touch is like magic to win friendship, influence, power. Can you afford to chill, to discourage, to crush out of your life this sweet, sensitive plant, which would flower in your nature and give added glory to your life, for the sake of a few dollars, a little questionable fame? ~ Orison Swett Marden
Word Power quotes by Orison Swett Marden
I want the word Autism to provoke an image of a wonderful and unique person. ~ Amanda Baggs
Word Power quotes by Amanda Baggs
To be alive--is Power. ~ Emily Dickinson
Word Power quotes by Emily Dickinson
The best word to describe my father? Thoughtful. There was a tender quality to Dad that his sense of fun could sometimes mask. But, above all, he was sensitive and looked out for those he loved. ~ Jennifer Grant
