The most precious things in speech are pauses.
A master of improvised speech and improvised policies.

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.
Walter Dean Myers
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.
Wherever the relevance of speech is at stake, matters become political by definition, for speech is what makes man a political being.
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.
Ben Crenshaws, Ive got a good feeling speech.
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.
Free speech is not a bogus issue. It is an issue.
This identity, this mind, this particular cast of speech, is nearly over.
Before every show, we get into a circle, hold hands, and someone makes a speech. Most bands are too cool for that.
Red Hot Chili Peppers
If our hard-earned liberty, our desire to be irreverent of the old and to question the new, can be reduced to one, basic and indispensable right, it must be the right to free speech.
While my speech is getting better every day, throughout my recovery, I have been able to sing to some extent.
