Demosthenes (384 – 322 BC) Greek Orator and Statesman
I completely agree! In fact on my blog, you can find more on the need for action in any talk.
Thanks, Craig. I like the quote by Seth Godin that you cite in your post. I too ascribe the “change the world” quote to Kennedy – see this post – but I know that there is some debate about the matter. Do you know exactly where and when he said it?
No, I don’t know for sure whether JFK said that. I just know Nancy Duarte cited JFK as saying it, which appears on page 194 of the print edition of Resonate, or page 230 of the digital edition.
Yes, I have also seen the reference as I have the book. And many others say it as well. But in one of his books, Nick Morgan say that an old friend of his used to say it. (Maybe the friend got it from Kennedy.) And I have seen other references to it without mentioning Kennedy. It’s more of a curiosity for me. I’d like to know the speech in which he said it. Then again, perhaps he just said it while having coffee with someone!
