Enthusiasm = eloquence

The emails from A Word a Day don’t only help you to increase your vocabulary, but also offer great quotes from authors and philosophers.

This one, from the American author Washington Irving—best known for the story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow— is a reminder for all speakers:

There is an eloquence in true enthusiasm that is not to be doubted.

Write it down somewhere, and then read it before your talks.
