One condition is basic for an spontaneous public speech, and that is that
one spend perhaps the better part of a month preparing it, editing it and
then reducing it. One should never speak for twenty minutes when one has a
thirty second idea. If it takes you more than twenty minutes to state your
ideas, you are not suited for public speaking, you are called to be an
author, and if no one else is willing to call you, know that I am willing,
at least as a public service.
