He who seldom speaks, and with one calm well-timed word can strike dumb the loquacious, is a genius or a hero.
The movie ‘Prema Geethangal’ brought out the campus life in the 1980s whereas ‘Ennalum Sharat’ speaks from the 2017 perspective.
For me, it is essential to have the inner peace and serenity of prayer in order to listen to the silence of God, which speaks to us, in our personal life and the history of our times, of the power of love.
Adolfo Perez Esquivel
Love can be understood only ‘from the inside,’ as a language can be understood only by someone who speaks it, as a world can be understood only by someone who lives in it.
Robert C. Solomon
The success of ordinary cosmology speaks against the idea that the universe was created in a random fluctuation.
I’m someone that speaks with their pads.
I am no theologian. I am a layman. I am among those who are preached to, and who listen. It is not for me to preach. I should not willingly forego being a listener, a man who reads the Gospels and then listens to what others say that our Lord meant. But sometimes a listener speaks out, and listens to his own voice.
Haniel Long
I’m trying to talk to my kids in Japanese, because I’m not a pro English speaker. My wife speaks to them in English. That’s her first language. I don’t want my kids to feel the same as me when I was studying English. It was so frustrating.
People are afraid, and when people are afraid, when their pie is shrinking, they look for somebody to hate. They look for somebody to blame. And a real leader speaks to anxiety and to fear and allays those fears, assuages anxiety.
M. J. was M. J. His body of work speaks for itself. We’ve seen his career, we’ve dissected his career and had the chance to watch it. That’s done.
Lombardi, a certain magic still lingers in the very name. It speaks of duels in the snow and November mud… He remains for many the heart of pro football, pumping hard right now.
I think my play speaks for itself.
Comedy Central is what these young people are viewing. The network speaks to their audience, which is saying, ‘Give me fast jokes. Give me party stories and party language.’
Bill Cosby
Well, I have a Norwegian father who emigrated to America in the 1950s, and he still speaks with varying degrees of an accent. Over my lifetime my ear has been well-tuned to that accent. Any first generation kid has that wonderful gift from their parents.
Christopher Heyerdahl
The guitar speaks for me and it says things – hopefully – for everybody that I play for.
There’s just an incredible amount of loneliness as a mother, all this solitude no one really speaks to.

Nothing speaks louder than an evocative photograph that stirs the imagination, tugs at the heart strings and engages the mind.
Mark Carwardine
I wrote ‘Ain’t It Cool? Hollywood‘s Redheaded Stepchild Speaks Out,’ because in doing hundreds and hundreds of interviews over the past six and a half years, I was tired of the story being half told or a third told or erroneously told.
Harry Knowles
Shaw is like a train. One just speaks the words and sits in one’s place. But Shakespeare is like bathing in the sea – one swims where one wants.
Music is universal; it speaks to people’s souls on the deepest level.
I’m reaching a huge audience. I’m doing what artists like Beyonce are doing in terms of selling out stadiums. The difference is my audience speaks Spanish.
Yes, there were piano bands and great rock pianists, from Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard to Keith Emerson, Rick Wakeman, and Elton John. But something about the electric guitar speaks of more than music – it epitomizes and gives voice to the rebellion, power, and sexuality of rock.
I was a fan of the Marx Brothers. One of them had this character where he pretended not to be able to talk, but then he wrote this autobiography called ‘Harpo Speaks!’ He wrote about how he quit school at nine years old to become a professional.
Every so often you read a play and a character just speaks to you – almost seems to speak through you, in fact.
As open as you can be about it and as willing as you want to kind of experiment with therapy, you still have to find the right person that speaks to you and feels like a good fit for you.
Looting speaks to a lack of economic opportunitiesfrankly, we all would loot, too, if our families’ continued survival depended on it.
He’s my friend that speaks well of me behind my back.
I don’t think there will ever be a band that compares to Pantera. In my book, they are the icon metal band of all time. Their catalog speaks for itself.
I hate when I see someone who speaks English speaking to someone who speaks a different language, and they’re screaming as if going louder is going to help the other person understand.
Graphic Design, which fulfills aesthetic needs, complies with the laws of form and exigencies of two-dimensional space; which speaks in semiotics, sans-serifs, and geometrics; which abstracts, transforms, translates, rotates, dilates, repeats, mirrors, groups, and regroups, is not good design if it is irrelevant.
The poet speaks to all men of that other life of theirs that they have smothered and forgotten.
Edith Sitwell
Subramaniyam Swami is a very qualified man; whenever he speaks, he speaks something new.
Ancelotti speaks a lot with his players, creates a very close-knit atmosphere, and the Real Madrid dressing room was very sad when he left.
Auschwitz speaks against even a right to self-determination that is enjoyed by all other peoples because one of the preconditions for the horror, besides other, older urges, was a strong and united Germany.
I’ve always been shy and that’s partly why I chose a life behind the lens. I like people to look at my work and hopefully it speaks for itself.
Bruce Weber
As a senator, Obama denounced the Big Brother provisions of Bush‘s post-9/11 Patriot Act, particularly its sections enabling the state to spy on Americans without their knowledge. After taking power, Obama acquired his other face. That face speaks far less, but when it does, it justifies Bush’s policies.
Creating a character is about what they look like. The look speaks volume to the audience.
Even though the white-haired politician has no colorful wardrobe, after he speaks… you want to hug him. Why? Because what Bernie Sanders says feels like the truth. The unbridled truth. And he says it loud.
My music speaks of warriors. It speaks of women being kings and this sense of pride of being more, even though you have less.
Mother Nature is always speaking. She speaks in a language understood within the peaceful mind of the sincere observer. Leopards, cobras, monkeys, rivers and trees; they all served as my teachers when I lived as a wanderer in the Himalayan foothills.
It was weird being a kid in the Midlands where outside everybody is white and speaks in a certain way but when you go home nobody speaks that way and everybody looks like you. Every day was this weird threshold crossing.
A writer just speaks from his heart, mind and soul. They are the conscience keepers of the society. They are the keepers of the soul of the society.
My father is just getting better and better, and that speaks so well of the way he approaches the work.
Beauty is the oracle that speaks to us all.
Luis Barragan
All cultures are different. Some commit genocide. Some are uniquely peaceful. Some frequent bathhouses in groups. Some don’t show each other the soles of their shoes or like pictures taken of them. Some have enormous hunting festivals or annual stretches when nobody speaks. Some don’t use electricity.
Once in a while, I write in Malay and work on something fun that’s more for the local Malaysian market, and when that happens, it’s always something really special; it speaks volumes that I’m doing it for my fans who have been there for me since day one.
I’ll have to have a room of my own. Nobody could sleep with Dick. He wakes up during the night, switches on the lights, speaks into his tape recorder.
Pat Nixon
I’ve lived my whole life in the life – I’ve lived my whole life doing the thing, I’ve been doing my own thing. And I think my life speaks volumes about what one must do.
There’s always difficulties and challenges in every life, I don’t care how much money you make, where you live… and that’s something this film speaks to.
I can do much, I can do everything for a man who will be my friend. I can give him power; I can give him wealth. I can give him reputation – the power, the wealth, the reputation which come to a man who speaks to a million people a day in the columns of a great paper.
My point is there’s a hidden Scotland in anyone who speaks the Northern Ireland speech. It’s a terrific complicating factor, not just in Northern Ireland, but Ireland generally.
Yes, it’s still a man’s world, unfortunately, and we have a long way to go in this country and all countries – but there’s something to be said for just feeling the spirit of a true man, and I think that’s what ‘Classic Man’ speaks to.
Cinematography speaks to everything that women do inherently well: It’s multitasking, it’s empathy, and it’s channeling visuals into human emotion.
Country music is the people’s music. It just speaks about real life and about truth and it tells things how they really are.
I’ve always just focused on the work, and I’ve just tried to be honest with the work. If the work speaks to people, fantastic.
Garth Davis
Michael Bisping just speaks to speak; he just talks to talk. He just tries to open his mouth so that something can be heard, but nothing’s going to come out.
It really is true that an orator is simply a good man who speaks well.
A more important reason is that the bands will intuitively trust someone they think is a peer, and who speaks fondly of the same formative rock and roll experiences.
I think that’s a hallmark of a really good story that it has readers that it speaks to more than others.
Toni Morrison was a big influence on my work since I was a teenager, what she did with English. I joke that I think she speaks 20 Englishes simultaneously, that she knows how to do that.
Robin Coste Lewis
In what purports to be an egalitarian society, the existence of class is the secret about which no one speaks.
Making fun of people’s looks is something that children do – mean children – and, in fact, linguists have determined that Trump actually speaks like a 3rd grader.
There’s no controlling Billie – she’s an authentic person. She’s strong-willed and speaks her own mind, but she also listens to reason.
Maggie Baird
I’m asked so many times why I think there aren’t more female instrumentalists in jazz. But I never think about it. And I don’t think it’s been any harder for me to be taken seriously. The music speaks for itself.
Hiromi Uehara
I was very interested in the relationship between the man who speaks and the woman who listens. I was drawn to the idea that the relationship between a man and a woman can be something like a war itself, very cruel and violent.
Antonio Lobo Antunes
For an author to write as he speaks is just as reprehensible as the opposite fault, to speak as he writes; for this gives a pedantic effect to what he says, and at the same time makes him hardly intelligible.
I’ve got one grandson gone to MIT. Another grandson had been in the American school here. Because he was dyslexic, and we then didn’t have the teachers to teach him how to overcome or cope with his dyslexia, so he was given exemption to go to the American school. He speaks like an American. He’s going to Wharton.
Many of the Central Asians know Russian, and Ted Levin speaks it fluently. I speak Chinese, but Mongolian is completely different, so we had to have translators.
A child speaks more sense than an adult half of the time.
In my opinion, that’s one of the hardest things to do in songwriting: crafting a song that speaks to you but, at its core, is a simple concept.
Putin responds to threats, to illegal sanctions, and to incessant propaganda with statements that governments need to respect each other’s national interests and to work together for common benefit. No politician in the West speaks in this way.
In so far as a scientific statement speaks about reality, it must be falsifiable; and in so far as it is not falsifiable, it does not speak about reality.
Karl Popper
Alcohol is barren. The words a man speaks in the night of drunkenness fade like the darkness itself at the coming of day.
Marguerite Duras
I feel like acting is something I’ve been working towards longer. And it would be great to win a Grammy, of course, but for some reason, an Oscar speaks more to me.
Socrates was tried in a religious court. He was condemned for disregarding Athensgods. If you look at the way he speaks at his trial, according to Plato, there seems to be a moment when he realizes this isn’t just a game.
On the day of the show, I sit down with someone that speaks very good English and someone who speaks the local language very well and work out what I’m going to say.
In India and elsewhere in the world, the moment a woman speaks out against harassment, people sort of start making all sorts of character judgments about her, about her morality, about what she was wearing, and all such things, and I think that is not fair.
I’ve always been committed to tuning out the trends of drag and doing styles and fashions and performances that are really true to what I love, to the movie references I’ve always loved, fashion that speaks to me for whatever reason – no matter what people say.
My mother-in-law speaks not a word of English. I speak not a word of Tajiki. So I smile at her ingratiatingly and she fixes me with a beady eye.
People say ‘Why would you learn Dutch? Nobody speaks it. Why not French?’ Even the Dutch say that to me! I say because I want to live here, I think it’s only common courtesy that I speak the language.
Anthony Geary
My brother-in-law is an African-American cop who patrols a New Orleans suburban community. He speaks to me often of his perilous duty.
We think when God speaks to us, there’s going to be a boom out of Heaven or we’re going to get some chill bumps, but I really believe God’s talking to us all the time. He’s talking to us right in here. I call it our heart, our conscience, but it’s the Holy Spirit talking to us.
We are obliged, therefore, to say that whoever speaks that which is foreign to religion is using many words, while he who speaks the words of truth, even should he go over the whole field and omit nothing, is always speaking the one word.
I think that my career speaks for itself and shows the type of player I am. I have never had a teammate who didn’t enjoy playing with me. There are always going to be skeptics, but chemistry will definitely not be an issue.
Chris Webber
Where words fail, music speaks.
Hans Christian Andersen
Movie dialogue is movie dialogue. It can sound real, but no one speaks that way.
We can’t get at crime unless we know what language it speaks. Otherwise, we are just suppressing the cough, not curing the disease.
Cafe De Flore speaks of love, its joys, its pains and its dramasto love and to lose. This story upset me, I was upside-down, in the depths of myself.
God hears no more than the heart speaks; and if the heart be dumb, God will certainly be deaf.
Thomas Brooks
Obviously, talent speaks for itself, so, yeah, you got to go in there, and you got to play well. You got to play your game, but that’s kind of the easy part in some ways.
I don’t know French at all. I took some lessons when I was younger but all I know are the numbers. I’ve been told basically everyone in Monaco speaks English because of it being a huge vacation spot so I’m excited about that. I might not need to learn French after all.
If you can prove that you’re in that elite class on a consistent basis, it speaks volumes about a player’s longevity. It also says that as a player, you were steady, stable, and great and that you deserve to be recognized.
The death of a language. The word has the same kind of reluctant resonance as it has when we talk about the death of a person. And indeed, that’s how it should be. For that’s how it is. A language dies only when the last person who speaks it dies.
I have a very lively and colourful show. It’s two hours of hits and the music speaks for itself.
It speaks to the incredible risk of doing business with the Islamic Republic of Iran if American companies have to turn to federally guaranteed funding mechanisms to support their business there.
A lot of people have said that I’ve got a voice that speaks to children. I think I’ve got a natural naivety to me. I’m childish.
You want to feel that your reader does identify with the characters so that there’s a real entry into the story – that some quality speaks to the individual.
About 25 years ago, when I was 15, I wrote a song called ‘Indradhanush’, which speaks about the seven colours, equating each with emotions that we as human beings experience.
I think the music that speaks to me the most is music that is personal. And that’s the music that I’m trying to make.
If you want music that speaks to you, that LISTENS to you, you have to go out of your way, which I enjoy actually. I’m constantly on a private-eye kick to find the totally obscure.
Trevor Dunn
It is a pleasure to play under Jose Mourinho, and everything is OK. I learn every day. He is a normal coach. He speaks a lot with the players. I like it when the manager speaks a lot with you because it gives you confidence.
For people of color – especially African Americans – the idea that racist cops might frame members of their community is no abstract notion, let alone an exercise in irrational conspiracy theorizing. Rather, it speaks to a social reality about which blacks are acutely aware.
My mom speaks English – she moved to England in the ’70s, so she’s fluent in English. We use to speak in Spanish when I was a kid all the time, me and my mom. But when I went to boarding school, I kind of lost it a little bit.
Ed Weeks
I set the bar high because I don’t want to do just any other show just to keep working. I want to do something special that means something to people and speaks to them. Those kinds of opportunities don’t come along all the time!
Sometimes you don’t have to say anything. Silence speaks it all.
No matter where you’re born or what country you’re from, you connect with ‘This is America.’ It speaks to people; it connects right to your soul. It calls out injustice, celebrates life, and reunites us all at the same time.
Its roots are in American Negro culture, which is part of the whole country’s heritage, but the dance speaks to everyone… Otherwise, it wouldn’t work.
Alvin Ailey
It always trips me out that America, the most powerful and magnificent nation in the history of the world, whose might was built by immigrants from all over the world, only speaks one language.
Just as a flower which seems beautiful and has color but no perfume, so are the fruitless words of the man who speaks them but does them not.
John Dewey
Freedom possesses many meanings. It speaks not merely in terms of political and religious liberty but also in terms of economic and social progress.
I’m not a follower. I’m a leader. And anyone who speaks their mind is always criticised.
There is no point having team meetings where no one speaks because you don’t learn anything.
In some ways I believe music is the more convincing communicator of ideas than words. For instance, we can hear of Kordaly and Bartok and recognise them as Hungarian, but very few of us speak Hungarian, but the music itself speaks to more people.
Pre-‘Tokyo Drift,’ I was like: ‘Am I gonna play Yakuza #1 and Chinese Waiter #2 for the rest of my life? Is America even ready for an Asian face that speaks English, that doesn’t do Kung Fu?’
Sung Kang
As a footballer I think your own history speaks for itself.
I just have a belief that when there is a rare script out there that speaks to you, you have to stick with it. You have to.
Heather Matarazzo
When you want to make a film abroad, you need producers and people who support you. You need a team that speaks your language.
In Chicago, you have an absence of strong family units, and that absence gets filled by gangs. You have a failure in the school system, after-school programs and other social programs to help keep kids off the streets. Amnesty International speaks to that in some way, by keeping these issues in the forefront.
I’m fluent in Spanish, so I can do a character that speaks Spanish.
My record speaks for itself.
Anybody who speaks quietly and shrivels up in company is unbelievably arrogant.
No one really speaks for the president other than the president.
I think that a song, when it works, never mind a piece of long form music, even a song is something that speaks to itself but has a language all of its own, ideally.
Steve Hackett
Music that speaks of politics is less listened to than the music of partying, but it’s still there.
I think there’s a huge lack of political artists in America, and I think it really speaks to our consumeristic culture and how people are driven to be financially successful here. It’s such a shame that we don’t have people who are more inspired than that.
My record speaks for itself.
My dad always speaks HIS truth. Sometimes it can be off-putting, polarizing, and misunderstood but underneath it all has a heart of gold and would do anything for his family.
‘Quick Change’ was my first real movie. It was an interesting audition process because there were no lines in the script. Bill Murray’s character would say something, and Geena Davis and Randy Quaid would say something, and then it would just say, ‘The cabbie speaks.’ How do you audition for that?
Hard work speaks for itself.
All I can say is that I’ve had too many people in the hip-hop industry really like what I’m doing. I know where I’m coming from, and the album speaks for itself.
The fact that hardly anyone is ever prepared to admit to racist behaviour is perhaps a sort of strength: it speaks to the fact that racism is socially inadmissible.
Great art speaks a language which every intelligent person can understand. The people who call themselves modernists today speak a different language.
Like, I just feel like the way a man speaks to a woman – the way that people speak to each other – it’s a respect thing.
A judgment about life has no meaning except the truth of the one who speaks last, and the mind is at ease only at the moment when everyone is shouting at once and no one can hear a thing.
Georges Bataille
The Conservative Party absolutely can be a party that speaks to mining communities in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, and communities based around heavy industry in Yorkshire and County Durham, Wales and Cornwall as well as urban areas like London.
We’ve got so many different cultural groups in my family that I’ve had to learn to accommodate them in different ways. My father speaks different to my mum. My mum speaks different to my grandmother. Everybody speaks different, so you find you start tweaking your language to be more accessible to people.
Money speaks, but it speaks with a male voice.
If you’re going to reboot something, reboot it in a totally original way that speaks to a new generation.
When one sings, one does not speak about the problems of the every day. One speaks about the things which inspire us, which helped us.
Yannick Noah
I think that’s something that we as black people in this country have been robbed of. I compare it to my brother’s wife, who is Hispanic. She was born in America but her parents are from Honduras. She speaks Spanish. She knows the culture. But most black people, we were robbed of that. We don’t know our heritage.
I grew up doing a lot of traveling. My mom left home when she was 15 and traveled to 48 different countries and speaks six different languages. So I grew up with my eyes open. She raised me so that if my heart says something is wrong, I have to go help. What’s right is right and what’s wrong is wrong.
Vivid images are like a beautiful melody that speaks to you on an emotional level. It bypasses your logic centers and even your intellect and goes to a different part of the brain.
Steven Bochco
The sea speaks a language polite people never repeat. It is a colossal scavenger slang and has no respect.
In the ’70s, the newspaper guild managed to get people paid what they were worth, but the reporters suddenly became middle class. It’s much more respectable, more uptight, and everyone speaks in guarded tones. And the writing isn’t as good. We always had guys who were failed poets and failed novelists who did it to eat.
The Special Olympics motto, ‘Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt,’ really speaks to me because it embodies exactly what I have pursued in my life. Really, that’s all any of us can hope for – a chance to be brave and to pursue a dream.
When I do an action thing, it speaks louder than the things that I’ve done that are dramatic and comedy. Actually, if you look at my resume, I have just as much comedic things as dramas, and I have far less action things than all of the other things, but I’m kind of defined as an action person.
It’s useless to criticize things that people love and something that speaks to them.
He that speaketh against his own reason speaks against his own conscience, and therefore it is certain that no man serves God with a good conscience who serves him against his reason.
We have laws against torture. The Constitution says nothing whatever about torture. It speaks of punishment; ‘cruel and unusualpunishments are forbidden.
With the coming of radio as a mass medium, suddenly the world changed. It became about, ‘Can this leader project emotional connection through the way he speaks on the radio?’ And the anxiety about whether he could do that, we’ve inherited.
I speak from the heart. Certain people follow lyricists and people that put words on a dictionary together, and this and that. I’m more of a rapper that speaks how I feel. I just tell it how it is.
My heart seems to heal, so that speaks well for my future.
When Klopp speaks about his football being heavy metal, I understand completely. It is so aggressive. For the fans, it is really good.
Having discussions over the years is normal, as I am someone who is very direct and always speaks the truth.
You can’t ever create defensively. You just have to create the next thing that really speaks to you.
It’s good to have someone who speaks your own language just to get your mind off of basketball.
In the South, everyone speaks, if you know each other or not. I’m raising my daughter more Southern, like how her father and I were raised.
The view of how America speaks is reflected in our laws. And one of the laws is fair housing. It very clearly prohibits discrimination in the sale and rental of housing in America. It’s been a sad fact of American life that the practice in many communities has been quite the opposite.
A quotation in a speech, article or book is like a rifle in the hands of an infantryman. It speaks with authority.
I do not believe in pure idioms. I think there is naturally a desire, for whoever speaks or writes, to sign in an idiomatic, irreplaceable manner.
What people love about Santorum is he is who is he. He speaks his words. He loves God. He loves his country, and he loves gays.
I’m special, in a way that is good. I don’t have to explain ‘special.’ There is no definition for special. Special speaks for itself.
It’s rare to find an Indian who speaks Chinese. It’s rare to find a Chinese who can speak any of the Indian languages. Neither of them at the trading level – I want to repeat this, at the trading level – can speak English, either.
I think the legacy left behind by ‘Battlestar’ speaks for itself. I thought that these avid fans, most of whom were skeptical at first… to turn them into a fan of ‘Caprica’ as well is a daunting task, a big challenge.
Unless one always speaks the truth, one cannot find God Who is the soul of truth.
Action speaks louder than words but not nearly as often.
When the heart speaks, its language is the same under all latitudes.
To him who in the love of Nature holds Communion with her visible forms, she speaks A various language.
I just make the music and then the music speaks for itself.
John Hartson, he speaks fluent Welsh and has the tattoos all over him to prove his Welshness. But in my own world, no one is more Welsh than myself.
The fact that that’s the difference between Mexicans and Cubans is pronounced. It’s so immediately recognizable, the way a Cuban speaks, the way a Cuban moves the hands.
Hector Elizondo
I’ve worked hard and tried to approach my career with as much honesty and integrity as possible. I’ve also had many blessings along the way and feel very fortunate to have a career that speaks so much to my soul.
For better or worse, when Sen. Inhofe speaks, the Republican Party follows. And when the Republican Party follows, it is impossible to get real work done in the Congress.
On telly, there’s been a move towards entertainment – with some very high-powered, fast-moving dramas. Then we have the Internet, where we get our information but it’s all in bite-size pieces. I think the documentary, as a form, actually speaks to what’s missing.
The history of Pantera speaks for itself.
Unfortunately, though both Mahatma Gandhi and Narendra Modi hail from Gujarat, Gandhi never lied, and Modi never speaks the truth.
Part of the popularity with Louis Farrakhan has less to do with the content of his message and more to do with the form that he portrays himself – as being a free black person who speaks what is on his mind with boldness and fearlessness. Who is willing to pay the consequences.
He’s not a coach who speaks to you every day. Wenger has spoken to me two or three times. He’s told me he’s very impressed by how I train and how I’m a disciplined character.
The Chinese are brought up to believe that you should be silent in class. The teacher speaks, and you just listen and absorb what they say.
Caleb Deschanel
To be in a situation where you have another year on your deal and the team still wants to extend that – they see your value, they want you in the building, and they want to build around you – that speaks volumes. That’s very, very important to a player like me.
If you see something that speaks to you and you can swing it, don’t question. I don’t regret anything that I’ve ever bought, only the things that slipped away.
Firstly you must always implicitly obey orders, without attempting to form any opinion of your own regarding their propriety. Secondly, you must consider every man your enemy who speaks ill of your king; and thirdly you must hate a Frenchman as you hate the devil.
Horatio Nelson
There are widows who long for friendly voices and that spirit of anxious concern which speaks of love.
The only way a ventriloquist speaks differently is that he forgoes using his or her lips, and learns to reproduce sounds using the tongue, upper palate, and teeth only. Those ‘difficult’ letters are B, F, M, P, V, W, and Y.
There is only one person who represents all Americans. We need a president who speaks out and condemns racism and anti-Semitism. We need a president who recognizes everyone is equal. We are not perfect, but we all deserve respect.
That’s the great thing about being an actor: getting the opportunity to do something that really speaks to you.
Music speaks to people in a way that breaks down boundaries that words and actions sometimes can’t.
I’m always drawn toward family drama, and dysfunctional family stories. It speaks to me, in a really profound way, and I think there’s so much to explore within it.
I think camp is a really fascinating thing, and it’s hard to define and hard to apply consciously. It’s almost something you take from material that’s already existed in the world, a reading of the world. But I think it speaks of a long tradition of gay reading of the world, before gays were allowed to be visible.
It feels good to just play in the All-Star Game. To be the first un-drafted player to start, I think it speaks volumes for those guys trying to make to the league that there are always opportunities if you just stay prepared.
I am a straight, non-alcoholic, non-partying guy who speaks straight. I have no knowledge of literature. This is my language of communication, and what I see, what I observe, I reflect.
Especially when I’m nervous, my mind is running a mile a minute. My ADHD speaks for me before I can speak for me.
When a president speaks, it’s to multiple audiences.
There are two voices: the first says write; the second hardly speaks, but I know what he wants. And if I let him, nothing would get done. He hovers at the edges.
I might be more fluent in Swedish than I am in Spanish. My wife speaks it to our kids, and they’re fluent so I hear it all the time, so I’ve got that under my belt.
The music speaks for itself. You either like it or you don’t, or you’re somewhere in between. That doesn’t change whether I’m in the band or not.
Bun E. Carlos
Shirley Valentine is a beautiful character and so well written. What Shirley speaks and thinks is so logical.
I must listen as God speaks to my soul through good thoughts, inspirations, and intuitions.
Music has always been a part of my life, and it helps me a lot because it speaks for me when I can’t speak for myself.
My upbringing is so fundamentally different to my parents’. It must be strange to look at your child who not only speaks with a different accent but has a totally different view of the world.
Hip-hop is the streets. Hip-hop is a couple of elements that it comes from back in the days… that feel of music with urgency that speaks to you. It speaks to your livelihood and it’s not compromised. It’s blunt. It’s raw, straight off the street – from the beat to the voice to the words.
When your heart speaks to you about what you need to do to sustain life on this planet, listen to it, make a difference, and be an inspiration for generations to come. Be inspired by people like Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Christopher Reeve, Albert Schweitzer, Helen Keller, and many others.
My body of work speaks for itself. I don’t need anybody in the media to tell me I’m a good defensive player.
I think the 16 years that I spent in Green Bay speaks for itself.
My customers come and go, cycle in and out. They eat others’ foods, too. It’s cool. They move on, and they come back. My quality, in food and execution, speaks for itself.
Hamas is a terror organization with a covenant that speaks about the elimination of the Jewish people and the State of Israel. They are not partners for negotiations.
To be censored is one sure way of knowing you have been taken dead seriously. It also speaks to the continuing power of the printed word, almost fifteen hundred years after that amazing invention.

When holiness is achieved by conforming to God’s will, one knows intuitively that which is wrong and that which is right before the Lord. Holiness speaks when there is silence, encouraging that which is good or reproving that which is wrong.
He who speaks evil only differs from his who does evil in that he lacks opportunity.
The only problem was that I couldn’t communicate with Dario. He speaks Italian and I don’t. We had a translator the whole time. I just felt that something was lost with the go between. He was a delightful man, but I wish we could have spoken the same language.

Beto O’Rourke speaks in annoyingly pert platitudes like some mediocre yoga instructor who promises to ‘build a movement.’
I’m kind of down for anything, as long as it’s an amazing script that speaks to me, so I’m just constantly reading and constantly looking.
I am endorsing Barack Obama because he is a new kind of leader: he speaks with a different voice; he brings a new perspective and inspires a real excitement from the American people.
I tend to be one who just speaks from my soul, and so what comes out sometimes is rather harsh. In that sense, I’m very much a part of the tradition of a Frederick Douglass or a Malcolm X who used hyperbolic language at times to bring attention to the state of emergency.
I actually did a lot of interviews with Benjamin Bratt, and I learned a lot about him in all of those 60 something interviews that we did, because it was a junket. He speaks very well, and I learned that from him.
Some museum boards think that choosing an architect can be reduced to a science, but it comes down to a matter of taste, pure and simple. A shortlist of prospective designers speaks volumes about the likely outcome. If the candidates‘ styles are too divergent, the search committee doesn’t know what it wants.
The best music to dance to is my music! Haha! I say anything that speaks to you. I personally enjoy dancing to hip-hop, R&B music, EDM/trap music.
If you believe that there is a God, then you know that God doesn’t show his face. He speaks to you, you feel him, but you’ve never seen him.
The point is that there is tremendous hypocrisy among the Christian right. And I think that Christian voters should start looking at global warming and extreme poverty as a religious issue that speaks to the culture of life.
I think my music speaks for itself – it backs me up.
Nonfiction speaks to the head. Fiction speaks to the heart. Poetry speaks to the soul. It’s the essence of beauty. The essence of pain. It pleases the eye and the ear.
Ellen Hopkins
I love any of Rick Stein’s television productions – the way he speaks about food is with such love and respect.
My mother is not a woman of ordinary culture. She knows literature and speaks Spanish better than I do. She even corrected my poems and gave me advice when I was studying rhetoric.
Our trials and our times of pain get the most recognition, but ‘Straight Outta Compton’ speaks to triumph. When it’s doubtful, when nobody is on your side, when your back is against the wall, you triumph and make it through. Showing growth through movies promotes growth.
O’Shea Jackson, Jr.
A voice and an accent are two very different things. The voice of a man is how he speaks from his heart, right in the middle of him… And then you stick an accent on top of that.
Trump is like a Shakespearean ‘fool’: he seems crass because he speaks the truth.
Great actors can transform, but sometimes there’s just this person who speaks right to the role. When they walk in the room, you know they’re that character. That is something you can’t teach an actor; that’s something that’s luck and chance.
I’m always for the person who speaks their mind.
