Committing Quotable Quips To Memory Makes Your Conversations More Interesting And Your Speeches Colorful.
- "The Tongue Has No Bones, But Is Strong And Powerful Enough To Illustrate, Elevate, Illuminate, Agitate, Eliminate, Motivate, Help, Hurt, Humble And Heal. Written Words Allow Us To Re-read And Regurgitate The Life Lessons Learned And Turn Them Into Everyday Thoughts And Accompanying Behaviors." - Dan Clark
- “My task, which I am trying to achieve by the written word, is not just to make you hear and to make you feel – but to make you see.” – Joseph Conrad
- “Don’t diminish the power of words, for they move hearts and hearts move limbs.” – Hamza Yusuf
- “If we understood the power of our thoughts, we would guard them more closely. If we understood the awesome power of our words, we would prefer silence to almost anything negative. In our thoughts and words, we create our own weaknesses, limitations, strengths and joys – and therefore can replace the negative with the positive at will.” - Betty Eadie
Dan Clark is founder and CEO of Dan Clark and Associates - an international communications and training firm; High Performance Business Coach; University Professor; an Award Winning Athlete who fought his way back from a paralyzing injury that cut short his football career; Adventurer; Gold Record Songwriter; and a New York Times Best Selling Author.
In 1982, Dan was sponsored into the National speakers Association by world renown Mr. Zig Ziglar, who took him under his wing, and for thirty years personally mentored Dan in the art of motivational teaching. Because Zig was a master storyteller, Dan became a master storyteller. Because Zig said amusing things like, “His smile was so wide he could have eaten a banana sideways,” Dan yearned to be able to create these same word pictures.
However, it was Dan’s mother Ruby who introduced him to the power of quotes, which to this day he still collects and memorizes, transposing them from mere entertainment to life changing nuggets of golden wisdom that constantly improve his vocabulary and illuminate his comprehension of the world. Consequently, Dan has also become a hit songwriter, learning to edit so ‘every word pays its own way,’ knowing it’s the short catchy one-line ‘hook’ that sells the song.
Dan attributes his long speaking career and phenomenal success as a primary contributing author to the Chicken Soup For The Soul book series to his understanding of the power of cleverly created phrases, which since 1982, Dan has shared in his own 34 best selling books, and sprinkled throughout his speeches to millions of people, in over 5800 audiences, in all 50 states, in 68 countries, on 6 continents.
Dan has been inducted into the National Speakers Hall of Fame, has been named one of the Top Ten Motivational Speakers In The World, and smiles his own ‘banana smile’ when he hears other speakers quote his ‘Clarkisms,’ knowing his quotes are some of the most posted truths on the internet - also available as beautiful posters on Dan’s website!
