You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.

Flaming enthusiasm, backed by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success.

It isn't what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.

Why not use the same common sense when fishing for people?”... More

There is only one excuse for a speaker's asking the attention of his audience: he must have either truth or entertainment for them.

A talk is a voyage. It must be charted. The speaker who starts nowhere, usually gets there.
Be absorbed by your subject.

Speakers who talk about what life has taught them never fail to keep the attention of their listeners.

Observe Nature, study her laws, and obey them in your speaking... More
