Brisk talkers are generally slow thinkers.
      - Jonathan Swift

Brisk talkers are usually slow thinkers. There is, indeed, no wild beast more to be dreaded than a communicative man having nothing to communicate. If you are civil to the voluble they will abuse your patience; if brusque, your character.
      - Jonathan Swift

The common fluency of speech in many men, and most women, is owing to a scarcity of matter and a scarcity of words; for whosoever is a master of language, and hath a mind full of ideas, will be apt, in speaking, to hesitate upon the choice of both.
      - Jonathan Swift

Great knowledge, if it be without vanity, is the most severe bridle of the tongue. For so have I heard that all the noises and prating of the pool, the croaking of frogs and toads, is hushed and appeased upon the instant of bringing upon them the light of a candle or torch. Every beam of reason and ray of knowledge checks the dissolutions of the tongue.
      - Jeremy Taylor

The greatest talkers in the days of peace have been the most pusillanimous in the day of temptation.
      - Jeremy Taylor

He who indulges in liberty of speech, will hear things in return which he will not like.
      - Terence (Publius Terentius Afer)

If I were queen, I should command Madame de Stael to talk to me every day.
      - Madame Tesse

Talking over the things which you have read with your companions fixes them on the mind.
      - Isaac Watts

Intemperance in talk makes dreadful havoc in the heart.
      - Thomas Wilson (2)

The inexhaustible talk that was the flow of a golden sea of eloquence and wisdom.
      - William Winter

Nor did we fail to see within ourselves
  What need there is to be reserved in speech,
    And temper all our thoughts with charity.
      - William Wordsworth

Men talk only to conceal the mind.
      - Edward Young
