Quote #204, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

I love Quotes. I love them because they make me think. What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?

Here goes blog quote #204...

"There is a direct proportion to how fast you speak and how little people understand."
-Fran Loeber, my awesome godfather-

Does anyone have the challenge that I have.. in that I talk too fast? Let me clarify; I'm not a fast talker( as in slick), I'm just a spaz and whatever I'm trying to say seems to rush out of my mouth.
Perhaps it's just that my mind is racing at 123 miles per hour. Maybe, I'm thinking, if I don't get it out in a hurry, I'll forget what I wanted to say?

Well, when Uncle Fran told me the above quote, it really made sense. The faster I speak, the less people will comprehend. Clear communication begins with S-l-o-w-i-n-g D-o-w-n.

Much work to do for me, but let's just say I'm a 'work in progress'. Who isn't?

That's my view....... What Say You?
