This month, the theme is "presentation".


It usually takes more than three weeks to prepare a good impromptu speech."
Mark Twain, US author (1835-1910)

"I can never remember being afraid of an audience. If the audience could do better, they'd be up here on stage and I'd be out there watching them."
Ethel Merman, US singer, actress (1909-1984)

"It's all right to have butterflies in your stomach. Just get them to fly in formation."
Rob Gilbert, Australian sociologist

"If I went back to college again, I'd concentrate on two areas: learning to write and to speak before an audience. Nothing in life is more important than the ability to communicate effectively."
Gerald Ford, US President (b.1913)

"No-one can say just how long a message should be, but you rarely hear complaints about a speech being too short. The amateur worries about what he is going to put into his speech. The expert worries about what he should take out. An artisitic performance is concentrated, has a central focus."
Edgar Dale, US media guru

"Before I speak, I have something important to say."
Groucho Marx, US comic actor (1890-1977)

"Put it before them briefly so they will read it, clearly so they will appreciate it, picturesquely so they will remember it, and, above all, accurately so they will be guided by its light."
Joseph Pulitzer, US newspaper publisher (1847-1911)

And finally, Murphy says...
"There are two great rules of life: never tell everything at once."
