Monday, August 28

One of the first great men in history to recognize the social value of majority rule was St. Augustine.

When St. Augustine dispatched St. Ambrose from Milan to Rome, Ambrose was confused about the proper day on which to fast, for in Rome, it was then the custom to fast on Saturday.  

He asked St. Augustine which fast day to observe.  The learned Augustine remarked, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.”  Because these words of St Augustine were both wise and practical, they have become one of the world’s noblest maxims.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking - Quick Tips

  1. Keep it short and sweet.
  2. Slow down: Don’t talk too fast.
  3. Look up! – It it’s too scary to look at the audience in the front row, look at the people in the back of the room.
  4. Smile : Look confident, even if you don’t feel confident.
  5. Pretend: Find a friendly face in the audience and pretend you’re only talking to that person.
  6. Practice: Join a debating team, dare yourself. To speak up in class, give a speech in front of a mirror. The more opportunities you have speak in public the easier it gets.
  7. Biggest asset: Self-confidence. Actas though you have a right to be there-because you do.
