Word of Advice?

One day shortly before leaving office, Teddy Roosevelt, in the process of planning an Africa safari, discovered that certain a legendary big-game hunter was visiting Washington and invited the man to drop by to impart some advice.

Visiting Roosevelt at the White House, the hunter, after a two hour meeting, emerged from the president's office in something of a daze. "What did you tell the president?" someone asked. "My name," the baffled man replied. "After that he did all the talking!"

[According to one of Roosevelt's sons: "Father always had to be the center of attention. When he went to a wedding, he wanted to be the bridegroom; and when he went to a funeral, he wanted to be the corpse."]
