The Important Lessons

It makes little difference how many university courses or degrees a person may own. If he cannot use words to move an idea from one point to another, his education is incomplete.
**Norman Cousins

My Problem with Spanish

Speaking English is like tongue-twist for me. I can speak each word perfect, but then you have to string them together like, ‘Blah, blah, blah.’ That’s when I get crazy.
**Jackie Chan

“She had lost the art of conversation but not, unfortunately, the power of speech.”

**George Bernard Shaw

Words: Beautiful in their Horror

“Words! Mere words! How terrible they were! How clear, and vivid, and cruel! One could not escape from them. And yet what a subtle magic there was in them! They seemed to be able to give a plastic form to formless things, and to have a music of their own as sweet as that of viol or of lute. Mere words! Was there anything so real as words?”

**The Picture of Dorian Grey
