QUOTES ON THE INTERNATIONAL MOTHER LANGUAGE DAY  

Posted by Rezwan in


A special kind of beauty exists which is born in language, of language, and for language.

- Gaston Bachelard 1884-1962, French Scientist, Philosopher, Literary Theorist

Everything can change, but not the language that we carry inside us, like a world more exclusive and final than one's mother's womb.

- Italo Calvino 1923-1985, Cuban Writer, Essayist, Journalist

To have another language is to possess a second soul.

- Charlemagne 742-814, King of the Franks, Emperor of the West

Those who know nothing of foreign languages, knows nothing of their own.

- Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe 1749-1832, German Poet, Dramatist, Novelist

How many languages are there in the world? How about 5 billion! Each of us talks, listens, and thinks in his/her own special language that has been shaped by our culture, experiences, profession, personality, mores and attitudes. The chances of us meeting someone else who talks the exact same language is pretty remote.
