Greatest Quotes Of All Time


Recommended Posts

I have been chosen to speak at an employer appreciation breakfast for my co-op. There will be 500 employers, teachers, and students at this event at a local golf club. I need some suggestions on an opening quote, because, as everyone knows, the best speech starts with a quote! Thanks :D
