speech

A Quote by U.S. Supreme Court on absence, censorship, contentment, democracy, freedom, ideas, interest, society, speech, and traditions

As a matter of constitutional tradition, in the absence of evidence to the contrary, we presume that governmental regulation of the content of speech is more likely to interfere with the free exchange of ideas than to encourage it. The interest in encouraging freedom of expression in a democratic society outweighs any theoretical but unproven benefit of censorship.

A Quote by Thomas Stearns Eliot on garden, giving, grace, journeys, life, love, memory, motherhood, satisfaction, and speech

Lady of silences Calm and distressed Torn and most whole Rose of memory Rose of forgetfulness Exhausted and life-giving Worried reposeful The single Rose Is now the Garden Where all loves end Terminate torment Of love unsatisfied The greater torment Of love satisfied End of the endless Journey to no end Conclusion of all that Is inconclusible Speech without word and Word of no speech Grace to the Mother For the Garden Where all love ends.

A Quote by Tom Blair on art, conversation, silence, speech, and women

Silence is one of the great arts of conversation, as allowed by Cicero himself, who says, 'there is not only an art, but an eloquence in it.' A well bred woman may easily and effectually promote the most useful and elegant conversation without speaking a word. The modes of speech are scarcely more variable than the modes of silence.

Speech is civilization itself. The word, even the most contradictions word, preserves contact - it is silence which isolates.
