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?'
Passion moves freely across borders, speaks every language, and flourishes in every culture. The movement of passion is the most gratifying satisfaction in any moviemaker's life.
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 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
Even Echo speaks not on these radiant moors.
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.
James E. Faust
At 20, 25, 30, we begin to realise that the possibilities of escape are getting fewer. We have jobs, children, partners, debts. This is the part of us to which literary fiction speaks.
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.
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.
Ojibwe prophecy speaks of a time during the seventh fire when our people will have a choice between two paths. The first path is well-worn and scorched. The second path is new and green. It is our choice as communities and as individuals how we will proceed.
My uncle is so funny - Don Vito. He was always fat with the craziest voice. Dude, he barely speaks English; it's just full-blown jibber-jabber. It's so funny to watch on TV because you really need subtitles because you can't understand him.
Historical grammar is a study of how, say, modern English developed from Middle English, and how that developed from Early and Old English, and how that developed from Germanic, and that developed from what's called Proto-Indo-European, a source system that nobody speaks, so you have to try to reconstruct it.
An author who speaks about their own books is almost as bad as a mother who speaks about her own children.
The words that a father speaks to his children in the privacy of home are not heard by the world, but, as in whispering galleries, they are clearly heard at the end, and by posterity.
Scientists in different disciplines don't speak the same language. They publish in different journals. It's like the United Nations: You come together, but no one speaks the same language, so you need some translators.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
There are widows who long for friendly voices and that spirit of anxious concern which speaks of love.
Gordon B. Hinckley
It is hard enough to be good at all, but to be good in comedy speaks for your character.
Who speaks to the instincts speaks to the deepest in mankind, and finds the readiest response.
Amos Bronson Alcott
Every so often you read a play and a character just speaks to you - almost seems to speak through you, in fact.
I don't speak for all Libertarians any more than Sean Penn speaks for all Democrats.
A man speaks only when driven to speech by something outside himself - like, for instance, he can't find any clean socks.
Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.
Charles de Gaulle
For me it's all about personal vision; is there something about a subject that uniquely speaks to me.
He who speaks evil only differs from his who does evil in that he lacks opportunity.
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.
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.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
