The trouble with her is that she lacks the power of conversation,
but not the power of speech. 
George Bernard Shaw

Half the world is composed of people who have something to say and can't, 
and the other half who have nothing to say and keep on saying it. 
Robert Frost



For I have neither wit, 

nor words, 

nor worth, 

action nor utterance,

nor the power of speech, 

to stir men's blood. 

I only speak right on. 

I tell you that which you yourselves do know.

 William Shakespeare

  1. These quotes reminded me to let you know that I heard your wonderful Francis Bacon header quotation repeated on NPR's All Things Considered yesterday in reference to Bach...I adore that quote. Here's link to the feature---mention is at very beginning of audio: http://www.npr.org/player/v2/mediaPlayer.html?action=1&t=1&islist=false&id=132804184&m=132812674
