His speeches to an hourglass,
Do some resemblance show,
Because the longer time they run,
The shallower they grow.

    John, this has to be one of the best public speaking quotes that I’ve heard. With the possible exception of the possibly apocryphal quote of Einstein who spoke of a long-winded speaker “I now have a new definition of infinity.”

    Thanks, you made my day.
