That is the only webpage that associates this story with Mr. Garthwaite, and it introduces the "cab driver/cab ride" story as an "excerpt from his speech." It appears to be a reputable webpage, but it sure does not look like an excerpt from a speech; unless Mr. Garthwaite stood there and read the whole story to the audience.
I saw it also referred to as a "comment by Steven Krushen," whoever that is.
Hundreds upon hundreds simply cite this quote this to "source unknown," and I think I would leave it at that.
The exact words are "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."from Maya Angelou, Professor of English Literature Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, NC
I checked out the above site and they do indeed attribuite to Carl Buechner, however I too thought I had read this from one of Mr Garthwaite's speeches. Maybe more than one person came up with the same quote!

When she was a very young child Eleanor Roosevelt’s mother called her “granny" because she saw the child as plain and awkward, rather than as beautiful and socially graceful as herself. Eleanor is described by many biographers as having a life long struggle with shyness and insecurity which can partially be tied back to her mother’s harsh criticism. Nonetheless, in her autobiography, This is My Story (1937), Eleanor Roosevelt wrote “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” http://www.firstladies.org/cur...se.aspx?firstlady=33
