Famous quotes containing the word speak:

    Most blest believer he!
    Who in that land of darkness and blind eyes
    Thy long-expected healing wings could see,
    When thou didst rise,
    And what can never more be done
    Did at midnight speak with the Sun!
    Henry Vaughan (1622–1695)

    I shall not be forward to think him mistaken in his method who quickest succeeds to liberate the slave. I speak for the slave when I say that I prefer the philanthropy of Captain Brown to that philanthropy which neither shoots me nor liberates me.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Faultless honesty is a sine qua non of business life. Not alone the honesty according to the moral code and the Bible. When I speak of honesty I refer to the small, hidden, evasive meannesses of our natures. I speak of the honesty of ourselves to ourselves.
    Alice Foote MacDougall (1867–1945)
