The manner in which our leaders speak is important. Not because it shows their own learnedness, but because it stirs the soul. When a man’s soul is stirred it makes for wonderful and horrendous deeds.
We are capable of such wonderful works, but without inspiration we tend not to push ourselves to the levels where such deeds can be done. For the last eight years, in the United States, we have dealt with a President who we can only hope will be the least eloquent of our lifetime.
