Are we up to 50 quotes already? I cannot believe how time flies.
When I began this series, I decided to limit the quotes to those that were directly related to public speaking (as opposed to quotes on general topics that are often used in a speech). Soon afterwards, I began to wonder whether I would run out of material. I needn’t have worried. There is plenty out there.
The other day, however, my daughter Kristen suggested that I post a quote of my own. “You’ve got good ideas, Dad,” she said. “You should come up with something original from time to time.”
I was flattered by her confidence in me. “Thanks,” I responded. “Maybe I will.”
“Good,” she said, as she headed out the door. “Just don’t write anything cheesy!”
Well, given that this is the 50th quote, I have taken up the challenge. My humble contribution is below. And I will post others in the future. (Unless they’re too cheesy.)
