Quote-ables

Using quotes from experts, authors or famous people is a great technique for adding interest and credibility to what you write, say or present. Just be sure to indicate who the author is when not a commonly recognized person.

Here are three you might like:

  • “Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
  • “Too many slides make an audience sleepy.” – Richard Nixon
  • “Speak plain and to the purpose.” – William Shakespeare

(Yes … I assumed you recognized those authors.)

If you have some favorite communication, business or management quotes, send them in.  I’ll be happy to share them with everyone in future posts.
