It is the doctrine of the popular music-masters that whoever can speak can sing. So probably every man is eloquent once in his life. We have our temperaments differ in capacity of heat, or, we boil at different degrees. One man is brought to the boiling-point by the excitement of conversation in the parlor where some requires the additional caloric of a multitude, some needs antagonist and some needs nothing less than the grandeur of absolute ideas but we do at certain point and everyone realizes that.
So you may think what about it.?
Because every man is an orator, no matter how long so ever he may have been a mute, an assembly of men is so much more susceptible. So how does it affects men? The eloquence of one has potentiality to stimulates all the rest, some up to the speaking-point, and all others to a degree that makes them good receivers and conductors, and they avenge themselves for their enforced silence by increased loquacity on their return to the fireside.
The plight of these phlegmatic brains is better than that of those who prematurely boil, and who impatiently break silence before their time. In our world we often exhibit a small-pot-soon-hot style of eloquence. Then each one in turn exhibits similar symptoms,—redness in the face, volubility, violent gesticulation, delirious attitudes, occasional stamping, a selfish enjoyment of his sensations, and loss of perception of the sufferings of the audience.
So always have lust to speak eloquent but not being irascible. It marks the universal feeling of the energy of the world engine, and the curiosity men feel to touch the springs. It can careworn the most wonderful effects that you would had never imagined.

Terror and beauty on their wing’
