After-Dinner Speeches: An after-dinner speech should be like a lady's dress: long enough to cover the subject and short enough to be interesting (p. 11).
Conferences: A conference is a gathering of important people who singly can do nothing but together can decide that nothing can be done (Fred Allen, p. 53).
Writing: Writing is easy. All you do is stare at a blank sheet of paper until drops of blood form on your forehead (Gene Fowler, p. 228).
Impromptu Speeches: It usually takes me more than three weeks to prepare a good impromptu speech (Mark Twain, p. 119).
Conversations: The art of conversation is not knowing what you ought to say but what one ought not to say (p. 56).
Speeches: Speeches are like babies--easy to conceive but hard to deliver (Pat O'Malley, p. 200).
