Voiceless Quotes (displaying: 1 - 17 of 17 quotes )
A beautiful woman risking everything for a mad passion. A few wild weeks of happiness cut short by a hideous, treacherous crime. Months of voiceless agony, and then a child born in pain.

I am the voice of the voiceless; Through me the dumb shall speak. Till a deaf world's ear. Shall be made to hear. The wrongs of the wordless weak. The same force formed the sparrow.
