    nope. speechmarks imply spoken words.


    BUT:

    if it's an important thought, or if you want to highlight it, try something else to give it impact.

    maybe italics, or putting it on a line on its own.

    :)

    Italics would be the best way, as already suggested, on their own line.

    Mr_Wobble ;)
