Speech quotes
It's amusing how people express the fact that they're speechless by speaking.

- Patrick Kenzie
A sudden silence in the middle of a conversation suddenly brings us back to essentials: it reveals how dearly we must pay for the invention of speech.

- Cioran, E. M.
Speech is often barren; but silence also does not necessarily brood over a full nest. Your still fowl, blinking at you without remark, may all the while be sitting on one addled egg; and when it takes to cackling will have nothing to announce but that addled delusion.

- Eliot, George
In anger we should refrain both from speech and action.

- Pythagoras
A written word is the choicest of relics. It is something at once more intimate with us and more universal than any other work of art. It is the work of art nearest to life itself. It May be translated into every language, and not only be read but actually breathed from all human lips;ónot to be represented on canvas or in marble only, but be carved out of the breath of life itself. The symbol of an ancient manís thought becomes a modern manís speech.

- Henry David Thoreau
Speech is conveniently located midway between thought and action, where it often substitutes for both.

- John Andrew Holmes
The only happy talkers are dandies who extract pleasure from the very perishability of their material and who would not be able to tolerate the isolation of all other forms of composition; for most good talkers, when they have run down, are miserable; they know that they have betrayed themselves, that they have taken material which should have a life of its own, to dispense it in noises upon the air.

- Connolly, Cyril
But words are things, and a small drop of ink, Falling like dew upon a thought, produces That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think. íTis strange, the shortest letter which man uses Instead of speech, May forma lasting link Of ages. To what straits old Time reduces Frail man, when paper, even a rag like this, Survives himself, his tomb, and all thatís his.

- Lord [George Gordon] Byron
Understanding is nothing else than conception caused by speech.

- Hobbes, Thomas
I have often regretted my speech, never my silence.

- Publilius Syrus
In the future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms. The first is freedom of speech and expression--everywhere in the world. The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way--everywhere in the world. The third is freedom from want--which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants--everywhere in the world. The fourth is freedom from fear--which, translated into world terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression gainst any neighbor--anywhere in the world.

- Roosevelt, Franklin D.
Speech is the mirror of action.

- Solon
Man does not speak because he thinks; he thinks because he speaks. Or rather, speaking is no different than thinking: to speak is to think.

- Paz, Octavio
A speech should not just be a sharing of information, but a sharing of yourself.

- Archbold, Ralph
The power of speech is not in words, but in the oration.

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

- Whitehead, Alfred North
The habit of common and continuous speech is a symptom of mental deficiency. It proceeds from not knowing what is going on in other people's minds.

- Bagehot, Walter
The pursuit of Fashion is the attempt of the middle class to co-opt tragedy. In adopting the clothing, speech, and personal habits of those in straitened, dangerous, or pitiful circumstances, the middle class seeks to have what it feels to be the exigent and nonequivocal experiences had by those it emulates.

- Mamet, David
Free speech is the whole thing, the whole ball game. Free speech is life itself.

- Rushdie, Salman
The Press is at once the eye and the ear and the tongue of the people. It is the visible speech, if not the voice, of the democracy. It is the phonograph of the world.

- William Thomas Stead
