BATTLE, n. A method of untying with the teeth of a political knot that would not yield to the tongue.

BELLADONNA, n. In Italian a beautiful lady; in English a deadly poison. A striking example of the essential identity of the two tongues.

LECTURER, n. One with his hand in your pocket, his tongue in your ear and his faith in your patience.

LOQUACITY, n. A disorder which renders the sufferer unable to curb his tongue when you wish to talk.

SLANG, n. The grunt of the human hog (_Pignoramus intolerabilis_) with an audible memory. The speech of one who utters with his tongue what he thinks with his ear, and feels the pride of a creator in accomplishing the feat of a parrot. A means (under Providence) of setting up as a wit without a capital of sense.

- The Devil's Dictionary by Ambrose Bierce, US author and satirist

That man that hath a tongue, I say, is no man, If with his tongue he cannot win a woman. - Shakespeare

Conversation is an exercise of the mind; gossip is merely an exercise of the tongue. - author unknown

The tongue is like a sharp knife. It kills without drawing blood. - Buddha
