2016-06-09 Helmsmen Toastmasters Club 2412 Meeting 2834 Minutes

“I’d rather be a could-be if I cannot be an are; because a could-be is a maybe who is reaching for a star. I’d rather be a has-been than a might-have-been, by far; for a might have-been has never been, but a has-been was once an are.”
Milton Berle — Opening quote provided by Nekisha Tate
