Famous quotes containing the words language and/or source:

    He had not failed to observe how harmoniously gigantic language and a microscopic topic go together.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    If, for instance, they have heard something from the postman, they attribute it to “a semi-official statement”; if they have fallen into conversation with a stranger at a bar, they can conscientiously describe him as “a source that has hitherto proved unimpeachable.” It is only when the journalist is reporting a whim of his own, and one to which he attaches minor importance, that he defines it as the opinion of “well-informed circles.”
    Evelyn Waugh (1903–1966)
