More Longwindedness Anecdotes

 

An ambassador having come to Sparta from Perinthus, spoke at great length.

 

“What answer shall I return to the Perinthians?”, he asked.

 

“Say, said the King, that you talked a great deal, and I didn’t utter a word”.

Present Generation and Posterity

 

 

General Alexander Smith of Virginia, a man of ability, was an excessively tedious speaker, worrying the House and prolonging his speeches by numerous quotations. On one occasion when he had been more than ordinarily tiresome he turned to Henry Clay who was sitting near him.

 

“You, sir, speak for the present generation; but I speak for the posterity,” said Smith.

 

“Yes, said Mr Clay, and you seem resolved to speak until the arrival of your audience”.

TIME and ETERNITY

 

On one occasion a person who was present at a sitting of the Court of Sessions in England, returned late in the afternoon and found the same case still on and the same advocate talking. He remarked to Lord Cockburn,

 

“Surely he is wasting a great deal of time”.

 

“Time, the jurist replied, long ago he has exhausted time. Now he is encroaching upon eternity”.

Help me to Find my way back, Please!

 

The late Gilman Marston of New Hampshire was arguing a complicated case, and had looked up authorities back to Julius Caesar.

 

At the end of an hour and a half, in the most intricate part of his plea, he was pained to see what looked like Inattention.

 

The judge was unable to appreciate the nicer points of his argument.

 

“Your honour, he said, I beg your pardon, but do you follow me?”

 

“I have so far, answered the judge shifting wearily in his chair, but I will say frankly that if I thought I could find my way back, I would quit right here”.

Nothing there to Stop!

 

And then there was the case of that other counsel, this was an Irishman, who also developed an inexhaustible argument upon an exhaustible case. After he had gone on for four hours the President of the Court said to him,

 

“Mr Murphy, is it any good for you to continue? Everything you say goes in at one ear and comes out of the other”.

 

“Why not, said the counsel, there is little enough to stop it”.
