Invited Speaker

Famous quotes containing the words invited and/or speaker:

    If my books had been any worse, I should not have been invited to Hollywood, and ... if they had been any better, I should not have come.
    Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)

    For, though the origin of most of our words is forgotten, each word was at first a stroke of genius, and obtained currency, because for the moment it symbolized the world to the first speaker and to the hearer. The etymologist finds the deadest word to have been once a brilliant picture.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
