I never understood people who said their greatest fear was public speaking, or spiders, or any of the other minor terrors. How could you fear anything more than death?

Speakers find joy in public speaking when they realize that a speech is all about the audience, not the speaker. Most speakers are so caught up in their own concerns and so driven to cover certain points or get a certain message across that they can't be bothered to think in more than a perfunctory way about the audience. And the irony is, of course, that there is no hope of getting your message across if that's all the energy you put into the audience. So let go, and give the moment to the audience.

— Nick Morgan

So, I don't enjoy public speaking and I have every sympathy for anyone who has to do it and doesn't enjoy it.

— Helena Bonham Carter

Public Speaking is very easy.

— Dan Quayle
