How to use "Hold forth" in context?

All around us people are holding forth, spouting on about their latest insights into the way the world works or their deep thoughts about life. And in many cases, we might be inclined to listen if the speaker had something new to say. But in many cases, the person holding forth either doesn't have anything new to say or is just reiterating what everyone else is saying. In other cases, the speaker might be trying to hold forth, but they're simply not very good at it. When you're trying to hold forth, it's important to be clear and concise, to tell your story in a way that's easy to understand.
