Thanks for posting the video link. I've read the speech and seen clips of pieces, but never seen the entire speech.

Yes, you do it again Garr. Thanks for the video on this day, and the good insights. Content is important, but behavior reigns.

Garr -

Thank you for another insightful posting. It is crucial to review performances by some of the great speakers of our time, like MLK, in order to see that a speech, or public speaking performance, includes countless variables as important, and sometimes more important, than words. How a speaker express himself or herself through body movement, inflection, expressions, emotions, etc. is critical to effectively communicating a message.

Another quote in the same spirit that come to my mind, and I guess it came to you as well, is from Hagakure: "It is bad when one thing becomes two". Unfortunately I don't know the 'surrounding' text, but it's definitely in the same garden as Jefferson.

John Windsor

Thanks for posting that, Garr. It really is a moving speech.
