Thanksgiving is almost here. Time for gathering around the dining room table with family and friends to reflect on the many blessings bestowed upon us. But will you be ready to deliver the perfect toast? Well, there is no better way to make the moment memorable, and even impress your guests, than by borrowing from some of the best wordsmiths in history.
