Speech quotes
Discretion in speech is more than eloquence.

Sir Francis Bacon
The habit of common and continuous speech is a symptom of mental deficiency.

Thomas Carlyle
Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting with the gift of speech.

Dom Deluise
Literature transforms and intensifies ordinary language, deviates systematically from everyday speech. If you approach me at a bus stop and murmur "Thou still unravished bride of quietness," then I am instantly aware that I am in the presence of the literary.

Terry Eagleton
Laughter is, after speech, the chief thing that holds society together.

Max Eastman
The learning of the syllables calls into play the three sensory fields, sight, hearing and the muscle sense of the organs of speech.
