Audiences are the driving force for an orator, musician, dancer or any performer. The response of the audiences is so very crucial that they direct you in the right direction. “To keep the audiences in rapt attention, it is necessary to get into the subject first, then to get into the subject your self and get the subject into the heart of the audiences” says Alexander Gregg, which is a very valuable advice for the novice.
The audiences are a part of the performers and they are not the customers because the audiences almost instantly respond to the good and bad aspects of the performer. While offering a speech, the audiences must not lose their attention and it is a good piece of advice to finish speaking before they get too bored. The collection of quotes on audience is an eye opener and is the personal experience of some and hearsay experiences of others. Anyhow, all of them are useful.
