We’ve collected the best Speaks Quotes from the greatest minds of the world: Princess Nokia, Marie Antoinette, Ivor Novello, Elena Roger, Donald Trump. Use them as an inspiration.

Music is like a conversation. One person says one thing that speaks with a harmonica, with a bass, with a drum. They’re all conversating, and we’re just trying to find a way to make conversation rather than blah, blah, blah. But it’s not really so hard a thing to do if you know the way to approach it.
Lennon has an amazing ability to think before she speaks. She doesn’t have to constantly be talking. She just thinks, and when she speaks, it’s thoughtful. She’s very calm. I’m trying to learn that from her.

When he to whom one speaks does not understand, and he who speaks himself does not understand, that is metaphysics.

German accents and Hassidic accents aren’t that romantic. They’re more harsh. Although Hebrew, when spoken by certain people, sounds beautiful. There’s this beautiful woman I know who speaks Hebrew, and when she speaks, it’s so attractive. Maybe it’s who’s speaking it.
So, rap has that quality, for youth anyway; it’s a kind of blues element. It’s physical, almost gymnastic. It speaks to you organically. Rap grows out of what young people really are today, not only black youth, but white – everybody.
Nothing is more untoward than a grown man tasking another with snapping a pic expressly so he can ‘flex the ‘fit.’ It’s tacky -self-aggrandizing – and speaks to an existential neediness typically reserved for failed actresses and phenomenally successful rappers.
It only stands to reason that where there’s sacrifice, there’s someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there’s service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master.
‘Faithfully‘ speaks to me. It’s about a guy who’s busy with his work, always on the road, but I’m still completely into you. If you just hold on, I’ll completely give myself to you. Just stick along for the ride.
I don’t speak for all Libertarians any more than Sean Penn speaks for all Democrats.
Surrealism is my stamp. I have a post graduate diploma in theatre and I was introduced to this concept and it stuck by me because it speaks of the hypocritical nature of the reality. We are something more inside and I want to portray the pluralities in thought.

I don’t have anything to prove because I’ve already validated myself and my work speaks for itself.

I want a language that speaks the truth.
Unlike most politicians who speak only from their mind, Amar Singhji thinks and speaks both from his mind and heart.

I could relate to Balu in the way he speaks, his mannerisms and how he cannot understand why such a big deal is being made when two people fall in love. It’s a fresh perspective of ‘Maro Charitra,’ something like what Anurag Kashyap did with Devdas in ‘Dev D.’
I think it speaks of all women having those few special things that make them feel feminine. And so when I was a little girl, I would associate Guerlain with that.
In accordance to the way that Benn speaks, he is not educated. Sure, he’s educated to a certain extent, but under different circumstances he would be a bouncer on some door in the West End and he’d have three kids from three different women… I am a superior person to that. I have finer points.
Here’s what I’ve learned about Hillary Clinton: She will be criticized when she speaks; she will be criticized when she doesn’t speak. And so I think she should speak her mind.

‘Carrie Diaries‘ was one of the scripts that was sent my way, and it was instantly something I wanted to work on. It was very charming, and there’s a lot of heart to it. It was touching and nostalgic and relatable, and it validates so many coming-of-age issues in an open and honest way. I think it speaks to real life.
Herbert Hoover was a man of genuine, fine character, but he lacked practical political sense. And he couldn’t bend and shift and change with the requirements of the time. And he was a ruined President, because he was such a, I think, stiff-backed ideologue. And I think that speaks volumes about his character.
I feel like my work speaks for itself.
Music is something so mystical, so unexplainably a thing you cannot put in the rules or boundaries, you know? It speaks about our feelings about questions of life and death. It goes absolutely beyond any kind of rules.

It’s one thing to be writing in South or Latin America, where, except for Brazil, every country, however small and hard to find on a map, speaks Spanish, but quite another to be writing in, say, Hungary, a landlocked nation of 10 million people, with a language that very few people outside Hungary can read or speak.

It’s a dead give away of an inexperienced writer if every character speaks with the same voice.

We still need a voice that thinks before it speaks.
When your work speaks for itself, don’t interrupt.

I appreciate actors who work very hard to get at the truth of the character they’re playing. That speaks to me, and I try to protect that process because I value the focus and intention behind it.
More than any other art form I know of in America, country music speaks of the true relationship between the American male and the American female… Terrible and impossible.
One thing that sticks in my mind is that jazz means freedom and openness. It’s a music that, although it developed out of the African American experience, speaks more about the human experience than the experience of a particular people.

Race affects everything that I do, and everything that I create speaks to intersectionality.
I’m just first of all looking for a part that’s well written and speaks to me.

Whoever speaks of Europe is wrong: it is a geographical expression.
I make music that speaks to me.
We need to recognize that the situation in Ferguson speaks to broader challenges that we still face as a nation.

The superior man acts before he speaks, and afterwards speaks according to his action.

It’s not new to attempt to vilify the minority that speaks about their oppression. That’s not a new thing.

My son has autism, and I founded the government relations department at Autism Speaks.
There are lots of actors who insist on speaking the lines themselves, and you hear the same thing from directors and the audience, but I don’t think it’s worth getting het up about. I think it makes more sense to use someone who speaks that country’s language: that’s what voice actors are for.

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’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.

Every so often you read a play and a character just speaks to you – almost seems to speak through you, in fact.

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.
Subramaniyam Swami is a very qualified man; whenever he speaks, he speaks something new.
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.

Creating a character is about what they look like. The look speaks volume to the audience.

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.
Cinematography speaks to everything that women do inherently well: It’s multitasking, it’s empathy, and it’s channeling visuals into human emotion.

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.
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.

He speaks like an American. He’s going to Wharton.

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.

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.

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.
Where words fail, music speaks.
Movie dialogue is movie dialogue. It can sound real, but no one speaks that way.

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.

As a footballer I think your own history speaks for itself.
In Chicago, you have an absence of strong family units, and that absence gets filled by gangs.

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.

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.
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.

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.
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.

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.

You can’t ever create defensively. You just have to create the next thing that really speaks to you.

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.

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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
I love any of Rick Stein’s television productions – the way he speaks about food is with such love and respect.
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.
