Excerpt from Evolution of Expression, Vol. 3 of 4: A Compilation of Selections Illustrating the Four Stages of Development in Art as Applied to Oratory
It cannot be too often emphasized that introspection is not conducive to vitality of the art product. The student who, while... Speaking, turns his thought inward upon his own mind, trying to determine whether he sees the picture he is present ing, defeats his own purpose. Such practice may serve him as preliminary exercise, but when in the presence of his audience their minds should become the objective point of his every effort. In quiescent concentration the pupil, inspired by his desire to give, is engaged in seeing clearly. But in the act of giving, of presenting the pictures to others, he must, even when practising alone, hold steadily in his mind an imaginary audience in whose minds he attempts to create vital, glowing pictures.
