I Have Nothing to Say

Today in the Word, September, 1998, p. 17

Albert Einstein once attended a dinner at which he received an award. Although Einstein was not scheduled to speak, the audience clamored for the great scientist. Einstein stood and said, "Ladies and gentlemen, I am very sorry, but I have nothing to say." Einstein sat down, but rose a few seconds later and added, "In case I do have something to say, I'll come back."
