Famous quotes containing the word language:

    The face of the water, in time, became a wonderful book—a book that was a dead language to the uneducated passenger, but which told its mind to me without reserve, delivering its most cherished secrets as clearly as if it uttered them with a voice. And it was not a book to be read once and thrown aside, for it had a new story to tell every day.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
