This Goes Way Back

in my early days as a Toastmaster, Larry Welch, the founder of our club, once used a promotional flyer featuring the idea “Language is the Dress of Thought.” I never knew where the thought came from (I suppose I  thought it was original), but now, on Sam Johnson’s birthday, I learn that the quotation was “borrowed.”

In my enthusiasm at the time I used the quotation in what is probably the earliest example of a flyer for this club. Enjoy this brief glimpse into our club history, and let it be a reminder to us all always to attribute the material you use.
