speech

Speech quotes
Speech
Speech is the small change of silence.

- Meredith, George
Few people know how to take a walk. The qualifications are endurance, plain clothes, old shoes, an eye for nature, good humor, vast curiosity, good speech, good silence and nothing too much.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Opera, n. A play representing life in another world whose inhabitants have no speech but song, no motions but gestures, and no postures but attitudes.

- Ambrose Bierce
A long tongue shortens life.

Music--there is something very wonderful in music. Words are wonderful enough, but music is more wonderful. It speaks not to our thoughts as words do, it speaks straight to our hearts and spirits, to the very core and root of our souls. Music soothes us, stirs us up; it puts noble feelings into us; it melts us to tears, we know not how; it is a language by itself, just as perfect, in its way, as speech, as words; just as divine, just as blessed. Music has been called the speech of angels; I will go farther, and call it the speech of God Himself. The old Greeks, the wisest of all the heathen, made a point of teaching their children music, because, they said, it taught them not to be self- willed and fanciful, but to see the beauty of order, the usefulness of rule, the divineness of law.

- Good News of God Sermons. 1859.
No woman can be handsome by the force of features alone, any more that she can be witty by only the help of speech.

- Langston Hughes
There is nothing more wonderful than freedom of speech.

- Ilya Ehrenburg
There are always three speeches, for every one you actually gave. The one you practiced, the one you gave, and the one you wish you gave.

- Carnegie, Dale
She has lost the art of conversation, but not, unfortunately, the power of speech.

- Shaw, George Bernard
They that are loudest in their threats are the weakest in the execution of them. It is probable that he who is killed by lightning hears no noise; but the thunder-clap which follows, and which most alarms the ignorant, is the surest proof of their safety.

- Colton, Charles Caleb
Let thy speech be better than silence, or be silent.

- Dionysius the Elder
The superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions.

- Confucius
Speech is human nature itself, with none of the artificiality of written language.

- Whitehead, Alfred North
For mankind, speech with a capital S is especially meaningful and committing, more than the content communicated. The outcry of the newborn and the sound of the bells are fraught with mystery more than the baby's woeful face or the venerable tower.

- Goodman, Paul
Free speech is intended to protect the controversial and even outrageous word; and not just comforting platitudes too mundane to need protection.

- General Colin Powell
The adjective is the banana peel of the parts of speech.

- Fadiman, Clifton
Why doesn't the fellow who says, I'm no speechmaker let it go at that instead of giving a demonstration?

- Hubbard, Kin
How absurd men are! They never use the liberties they have, they demand those they do not have. They have freedom of thought, they demand freedom of speech.

- Kierkegaard, S°ren
OPERA, n. A play representing life in another world, whose inhabitants have no speech but song, no motions but gestures and no postures but attitudes. All acting is simulation, and the word _simulation_ is from _simia_, an ape; but in opera the actor takes for his model _Simia audibilis_ (or _Pithecanthropos stentor_) -- the ape that howls. The actor apes a man -- at least in shape; The opera performer apes and ape.

- Ambrose Bierce
Wherever the relevance of speech is at stake, matters become political by definition, for speech is what makes man a political being.

- Arendt, Hannah
