The most precious things in speech are pauses.
Speech is the twin of my vision, it is unequal to measure itself, it provokes me forever, it says sarcastically, Walt you contain enough, why don't you let it out then?

I couldn't speak well. I went to speech therapy for 10 years. And I was sort of frustrated in that sense.

Speech is silver, silence is golden.
For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals. Then something happened which unleashed the power of our imagination. We learned to talk and we learned to listen. Speech has allowed the communication of ideas, enabling human beings to work together to build the impossible. Mankind's greatest achievements have come about by talking, and its greatest failures by not talking. It doesn't have to be like this. Our greatest hopes could become reality in the future. With the technology at our disposal, the possibilities are unbounded. All we need to do is make sure we keep talking.
By sincerity, a man gains physical, mental and linguistic straightforwardness, and harmonious tendency; that is, congruence of speech and action.
If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.
Wherever the relevance of speech is at stake, matters become political by definition, for speech is what makes man a political being.
I've been working hard: lots of therapy, speech therapy, physical therapy, yoga too.
Not being able to read and write music is not the same as being illiterate in speech and writing.
I do find my speech difficult at times, but it's getting so much better as my confidence grows and that's thanks to the position I'm now in, which is totally due to my fans.
