The Speaker's Quote Book
Everyone who speaks or preaches needs a ready supply of thought-provoking and illustrative resource material. "The Speaker's Quote Book" provides the attention-getting story or that "just right" quote that adds depth to any sermon or presentation.
Most people are familiar with Emerson's remark about the person who builds a better mousetrap. Pastors and speakers might be surprised to know that the full quote attributed to him states:
"If a man can write a better book, preach a better sermon, or make a better mousetrap than his neighbor, though he builds his house in the woods, the world will make a beaten path to his door."
This and over 4,500 more quotes, stories, anecdotes, and illustrations from "The Speaker's Quote Book" will help the pastor prepare a better sermon or the speaker present a better speech. This new collection of both contemporary and classic material puts a wealth of interest-building illustrations at one's fingertips.
