I'll have to think about it - imagine what was said - and then reconstruct it into a suitable text-type; reported speech, a journalistic type text, an interview if you want to be interactive, et al.

What I said only exists in the memory / imagination of myself and others and I am no longer in that act of saying. There is no longer any sensory input (hearing and in post literate terms "hearing" with the eyes "reading") into this, the event that is described is all in the mind / intellect.
I wish to preach... that highest form of success which comes, not to the man who desires mere easy peace, but to the man who does not shrink from danger, from hardship, or from bitter toil, and who out of these wins the splendid ultimate triumph.(TR-1899)

Interesting thread. I have been working against the clock, the book by Juan Hernandez is due back at Multnomah University.
