meetings

A Quote by Mitch on on time, meetings, travel, and decision

The best way to be on time is to simply decide to be on time and to acknowledge that travel and meetings always take more time than originally anticipated.

A Quote by W.H. Murray on boldness, chance, commitment, creation, decisions, dreams, genius, ideas, ignorance, learning, magic, meetings, planning, power, providence, respect, and truth

Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness concerning all acts of initiative and creation. There is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans; that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.

All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen events, meetings and material assistance which no one could have dreamed would have come their way.

I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets: "Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now!"

W.H. Murray

A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on inspiration, learning, meetings, quotations, and style

Adlai Stevenson, himself a notable speaker, often reminisced about his last meeting with Churchill. I asked him on whom or what he had based his oratorical style. Churchill replied, "It was an American statesman who inspired me and taught me how to use every note of the human voice like an organ." Winston then to my amazement started to quote long excerpts from Bourke Cockran's speeches of 60 years before. "He was my model," Churchill said. "I learned from him how to hold thousands in thrall."
