on speaking

Almighty God,
   bestow on us the meaning of words,
   the light of understanding,
   the nobility of diction,
   and the faith of the true nature.
And grant that what we believe
   we may also speak.

Hilary of Poitiers c. 310 – c. 367, Bishop of Poitiers (France)

If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God.
