Take Pause

” The most precious things in speech are the pauses.”   Sir Ralph Richardson, famed 20th century English stage and film actor

“Well-timed silence hath more eloquence than speech.”   Martin Farquhar Tupper, 19th century English writer and poet

‘The right word may be effective, but no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause.” – Mark Twain

(Wish I had said that … actually, I have.  A ‘Phil’s Faves’ often heard in my presentation skill workshops and executive coaching engagements is ‘Harness the Power of the Pause!’. And, … you can quote me.)
