Carl Sandburg
Slang is the language which takes off its coat, spits on its hands - and goes to work.
Curtis Lull
He has the mystique of places I've never been, because he speaks some languages I've never learned.
Joan Didion
I am still committed to the idea that the ability to think for one’s self depends upon one’s mastery of the language.
Rebecca Solnit
Walkers are 'practitioners of the city,' for the city is made to be walked. A city is a language, a repository of possibilities, and walking is the act of speaking that language, of selecting from those possibilities. Just as language limits what can be said, architecture limits where one can walk, but the walker invents other ways to go.
Anything that is too stupid to be spoken is sung.
