    I always look forward to the Quotes for Public Speakers. Oscar Wilde’s advice is great. He didn’t use a lot of words, but he sent a powerful message. “Be yourself: everyone else is already taken,” reminds me that I am unique and that I need to throw myself full throttle into being all that I was created to be. Toastmasters Club has challenged me to “fan into flame” my passions in life.
