As an atheist, I am angry that we live in a society in which the plain truth cannot be spoken without offending 90% of the population.
Persuasion is achieved by the speaker's personal character when the speech is so spoken as to make us think him credible. We believe good men more fully and more readily than others: this is true generally whatever the question is, and absolutely true where exact certainty is impossible and opinions are divided.
I often regret that I have spoken; never that I have been silent.
Everything becomes a little different as soon as it is spoken out loud.
I believe that one key to success is to accept truth, no matter how it's spoken.
I cannot improve on those spoken for many years by a true legend who preceded me at CBS News. He would say, simply, 'good night, and good luck.'
Christlike communications are expressions of affection and not anger, truth and not fabrication, compassion and not contention, respect and not ridicule, counsel and not criticism, correction and not condemnation. They are spoken with clarity and not with confusion. They may be tender or they may be tough, but they must always be tempered.
L. Lionel Kendrick

An idea, like a ghost, must be spoken to a little before it will explain itself.
In the old days, a con man would be good looking, suave, well dressed, well spoken and presented themselves real well. Those days are gone because it's not necessary. The people committing these crimes are doing them from hundreds of miles away.

What makes us human, I think, is an ability to ask questions, a consequence of our sophisticated spoken language.
Growing up, politics never trickled down to the areas we come from. But people from Obama's camp, and Obama himself, reached out to me and asked for my help on the campaign. We've sat and had dinner, and we've spoken on the phone. He's a very sharp guy. Very charming. Very cool.
