CALL AUDITORIUM—Steve Forbes, Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Magazine, is expected to impart a previously unreleased Forbes Quote of the Day on the audience at his Wednesday speech on Cornell’s campus.
“I always love seeing inspirational quotes from figures such as Mark Zuckerberg and Whoopi Goldberg while I wait to read the article I clicked on,” said Tim Zhang ‘21, who says he can’t wait to brag to all his friends about being one of the first to hear this new quote. “Sometimes I’ll just click on articles I don’t want to read just to view one of the quotes. This time, I won’t be forced to look at one of Forbes’ subpar articles after hearing the quote!”
Not everyone is excited to hear the quote though. “If I have to wait 5 seconds before the rest of the speech tonight, I may as well just walk out instead of wasting my time,” said Cory Harris ‘19.
As of Wednesday morning, dozens of students have already paused Adblock so they can get into the event.
