Quote for the Day

Need a good story for a speech? Here’s one, courtesy of Bessemer Trust’s Steve R. Akers speaking at a CLE seminar I attended today at the Utah Bar in Salt Lake City. He got the story from Conrad Teitell, who spoke at this year’s Heckerling Institute (an annual estate planning conference) in Orlando:

A son wanted to get his mother a special gift for her birthday. He decided on a parrot to keep her company. He called his mother later to ask how she liked her birthday present. She said, “It was delicious. My friend Louise and I got together and . . . ” The son exclaimed, “Mother, that was a rare parrot, taught by an interpreter at the United Nations to speak 14 languages.” His mother quietly responded, “He should have said something.”

Have a nice day.
