What would be correct?

  1. I'd like to say the first two paragraphs from the speech.

  2. I'd like to speak the first two paragraphs from the speech.

It's not to be read out from a written sheet, please note; it's to be memory based. Any other verb which would more appropriate may also be suggested.

"Say" would be more common than "speak".

It would depend on the context, but I can imagine something like:

I'd like to share the first two paragraphs from the speech.

Or perhaps something like this would be appropriate in certain contexts:

I'd like to recite the first two paragraphs from the speech.
