Spoke Quotations

Sometimes I've been to a party where no one spoke to me for a whole evening. The men, frightened by their wives or sweeties, would give me a wide berth. And the ladies would gang up in a corner to discuss my dangerous character.
Marilyn Monroe

I had no idea there was ever going to be rap music. Those rhymes were something you would do on the street. There was an album, if you research it, called 'Hustler's Convention,' and it was like, old cats saying rhymes. You had The Last Poets. Then you had Gil Scott-Heron. Iceberg Slim even did an album called 'Reflection' where he spoke in rhyme.
Ice T

I liked to write from the time I was about 12 or 13. I loved to read. And since I only spoke to my brother, I would write down my thoughts. And I think I wrote some of the worst poetry west of the Rockies. But by the time I was in my 20s, I found myself writing little essays and more poetry - writing at writing.
Maya Angelou

Then, in that hour of deliverance, my heart spoke. Does not such a country, and such defenders of their country, deserve a song?
Francis Scott Key

It is plain indeed that in spite of later estrangement Hobbits are relatives of ours: far nearer to us than Elves, or even than Dwarves. Of old they spoke the languages of Men, after their own fashion, and liked and disliked much the same things as Men did. But what exactly our relationship is can no longer be discovered.
J. R. R. Tolkien
