Quotes for Public Speakers (No. 105)

Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900) Irish Writer

“Just as the orator marks his good things by a dramatic pause, or by raising or lowering his voice, or by gesture, so the writer marks his epigrams with italics, setting the little gem, so to speak, like a jeweller.”

— Oscar Wilde
