• Introduction and conclusion
• Use of direct quotes
I would like to first start by thanking my family, friends, and colleagues who have honored me with your presence today. Over the years, I have learned that there is not a specific formula for a long and prosperous life. However, I will share of few of the principles I live by and have found valuable.
“Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.” Winston S. Churchill
“To be gritty is to keep putting one foot in front of the other. To be gritty is to hold fast to an interesting and purposeful goal. To be gritty is to invest, day after week after year, in challenging practice. To be gritty is to fall down seven times, and rise eight.” Angela Lee Duckworth
“Always be nice to the people you meet on your way up in life as you may meet them again on the way down.” Jimmy Durante
“When you come to a fork in the road, take it!” Yogi Berra
I hope these words of wisdom help you create lives filled with peace, love, and joy. Thank you all for coming to celebrate my special day, and I look forward to our next celebration!
Part 2: Respond to a Peer
Read a post by one of your peers and respond, making sure to extend the conversation by asking questions, offering rich ideas, or sharing personal connections.

RE: Week 8 Discussion
I found the introduction and conclusion to be the most appealing. It offers rich ideas and alludes to a good speech, however, I was let down once I read the body of the speech is only quotes. While these quotes are good, it doesn’t actually accomplish anything. If one quote was placed at the beginning within the intro it could add depth and curiosity to the speech. Quotes can grab the audiences attention, however a body paragraph consisting entirely of quotes can quickly bore the audience. The speech can easily be improved by explaining why the ideals described in the quotes are important to the speaker. Instead of using the quotes as the body paragraph or the bulk of the speech, the speaker could use the quotes as inspiration on the topic. For example the lengthy quote by Angela Lee Duckworth could have been replaced with rich ideas about why grit is important to the speaker and how they use the concept of “fall down seven times rise up eight” to improve their life.
