“Most visual aids, unless simple and used sparingly, will kill a speech and deaden the attention of the audience” (Humes 67).
“If the picture is not self-explanatory and can’t be summed up quickly in a simple, catchy tag line, don’t trot it out” (Humes 67).
“[A visual] should not be your security blanket, but rather a handkerchief to pull out of your sleeve” (Humes 68).
“Visual aids should be a supplement” (Humes 69).
