Lesson 31, “Putting It All Together” pp. 149-152.
Wilson close this book with a reminder that the rhetorician must remember a great many details. Wilson strongly recommends that the confidence needed for public speaking be placed not in the speaker or his preparation, but in God (Wilson 2011, 149). A great deal of preparation must always go into speaking well, practicing the skill of pulling ethos, pathos, and logos together, practicing the mechanics, and being well prepared (Wilson 2011, 150-151).
