The day started with Edward Everett giving a 13,607 word speech. It was two hours long. Very common at the time.
Abraham Lincoln followed with 271 words which would later be known as the real Gettysburg Address.
All it took was 271 words to heal a nation.
You don’t need thousands of words when a hundred will suffice.
And the same is true about money or politics.
One person is enough to change the course of things.
