A speech is poetry: cadence, rhythm, imagery, sweep! A speech reminds us that words, like children, have the power to make dance the dullest beanbag of a heart.
Usually, if we hate, it is the shadow of the person that we hate, rather than the substance. We may hate a person because he Reminds us of someone we feared and disliked when younger; or because we see in him some gross caricature of what we find repugnant in ourself; or because he symbolizes an attitude that seems to threaten us.sydney j. harris

If folly leads each man into a blindness where he is lost, the madman, on the contrary, Reminds each man of his truth; in a comedy where each man deceives the other and dupes himself, the madman is comedy to the second degree: the deception of deception; he utters, in his simpleton's language which makes no show of reason, the words of reason that release, in the comic, the comedy: he speaks love to lovers, the truth of life to the young, the middling reality of things to the proud, to the insolent, and the liars.
Naked girls with the heads of Marx and Malraux prone and helpless in the glare of the headlights, tried to give them a little joie de vivre but maybe it didn’t take, their constant bickering and smallness, it’s like a stroke of lightning, the world Reminds you of its power, tracheotomies right and left, I am spinning, my pretty child, don’t scratch, pick up your feet, the long nights, spent most of my time listening, this is a test of the system, this is only a test.Donald Barthelme

I have gained very great inspiration from the Cornish land- and seascape, the horizontal line of the sea and the quality of light and colour which Reminds me of the Mediterranean light and colour which so excites one’s sense of form; and first and last there is the human figure which in the country becomes a free and moving part of a greater whole. This relationship between figure and landscape is vitally important to me. I cannot feel it in a city.barbara hepworth

"Which Reminds me of the man I read of in some sacred book who was given a choice of what he most desired. And because he didn't ask for titles and honours and dignities, but only for immense wealth, these other things came to him also.""I am sure you didn't read about him in any sacred book.""Yes; I fancy you will find him in Debrett."saki

Some tell me "Preach the pure gospel!" This Reminds me that the Communist secret police also told me to preach Christ, but not to mention communism.

A professional entertainer who allows himself to become known as a singer of folk songs is bound to have trouble with his conscience provided, of course, that he possesses one. As a performing artist, he will pride himself on timing and other techniques designed to keep the audience in his control [...] his respect for genuine folklore Reminds him that these changes, and these techniques, may give the audience a false picture of folk music.sam hinton
The Freedom Bell in Berlin is, like the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, a symbol which Reminds us that freedom does not come about of itself. It must be struggled for and then defended anew every day of our lives.'angela merkel
