The formula in public speaking
An English professor was asked the formula of success in public speaking.
"Well", he said, "in promulgating your esoteric cogitations and articulating superficial, sentimental and psychological observations, beware of platitudinous ponderosity.
Let your extemporaneous decantation and unpremeditated expatiations have intelligibility and veracious veracity without rodomontade and thrasonical bombast.
Sedulously avoid all polysyllabic profundity, pusillanimous vacuity, pestiferous profanity, and similar transgressions".
Then he asked,
"Did u get the formula of success in public speaking?"
"To put it a bit differently", He concluded, "talk simply, naturally and above all don't use difficult words".
