Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it.
A leader is best when people barely know he exists; Not so good when people obey and acclaim him; worst when they despise him; but a good leader who talks little when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say "We did it our selves!"
Would you convey my compliments to the purist who reads your proofs and tell him or her that I write in a sort of broken-downpatoiswhichissomething likethewaya Swiss waiter talks, and that when I split an infinitive,God damn it, I split it so it will stay split.Raymond Chandler
I am a guy who talks about bacon and escalators. Stand-up comedy is very much a conversation. It's very personal, stylistically.jim gaffigan
Money talks: financing the periphery buys Berlin a leading role recasting the eurozone governance framework. The recent ‘six pack’ of legislative reforms hints at what’s to come: institutionalized fiscal discipline and an excessive imbalances procedure that protects against future moral hazard. The whole eurozone will tilt toward the German surplus model as we get more fiscal integration and more German leverage.ian bremmer

An author who speaks about his own books is almost as bad as a mother who talks about her own children.
I don't call that a failure, a real failure is when a man talks for an hour and says nothing.joseph dare
What it talks about is stuff that I've gone through, like, in the past year, which is, you know, a lot, and some of it's good, and some of it's bad, and a lot of it's, like, a big learning experience. And I got to write a lot about that with people that I've worked with before, so I felt completely comfortable.hilary duff
For us, it is alright if the talks succeed, and it is alright if they fail.zhou enlai

A person talks in such generalities that everyone can understand him and it's considered to be some deep philosophy . However, I would like to be very rather more special and I would like to be understood in an honest way, rather than in a vague way.richard feynman
No one talks more passionately about his rights than he who in the depths of his soul doubts whether he has any. By enlisting passion on his side he wants to stifle his reason and its doubts: thus he will acquire a good conscience and with it success among his fellow men.friedrich nietzsche

He lives, he lives, Christ Jesus lives today; He walks with me and talks with me along life ’s narrow way. He lives, he lives salvation to impart; You ask me how I know helives” He lives within my heart .
Then those whose balance (of good deeds ) is heavy, - they will attain salvation: But those whose balance is light, will be those Who have lost their souls ; In Hell will they abide (23:102-3). The Quran also talks about those who give their lives “to earn the pleasure of God ”(2:207) and that “God will deliver those who fear Him, for they have earned Heaven . (39:61)"
