I'm reading a book on public speaking.  I like these quotes.


Today's public figures can no longer write their own speeches or books, and there is some evidence that they can't read them either.

- Gore Vidal



Commencement speeches were invented largely in the belief that outgoing college students should never be released into the world until they have been properly sedated.

- G.B. Trudeau



The best way to sound like you know what you're talking about is to know what you're talking about.
