How To Interrupt Gracefully

Gene Griessman

If you are interrupted and wish to add a point or if you want to make a point after you have finished speaking and the conversation has moved on, one way to re-enter the conversation is to say: “If I could (might) add…”

Also you  increase the odds of a successful re-entry if you call the person by name: “Bob, if I could (might) add…”

Don’t get embarrassed using a spurious Lincoln quote. Here’s a quotation book you can trust

The Words Lincoln Lived By is a stirring, inspirational treasury of quotations from our greatest and most admired president. Composed of Lincoln’s profound observations—one for every week of the year, each followed by a short commentary that provides historical context—the book offers rich material for interpretation, reflection, and spiritual guidance. In these pages, Lincoln, famed as an orator, shares his wisdom on courage and determination, compassion and compromise, tolerance and tact—the essential traits that define character. The timeless impact of his words is as powerful as the achievements that have helped to make him an American hero.

Every Lincoln quotation in this book is authentic.
