How to select all text in Illustrator

Here's something I thought I wouldn't need to know in Illustrator. A little while ago I was working on an illustration for a document. This diagram had numerous individual pieces of text. I eventually needed to select all. Here's how to do it without choosing each individually. 

1. Go to the "Select" menu  at the top of the interface.

2. Choose "Object", "Text Objects"...

and all text objects should now be selected.
