Many of Hitler's speeches were very powerful. He was supposedly a great public speaker, although I suppose you have to be to somehow convince a nations military that persecuting millions of innocents is right.

That until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned: That until there are no longer first-class and second class citizens of any nation; That until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes; That until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race; That until that day, the dream of lasting peace and world citizenship and the rule of international morality will remain but a fleeting illusion, to be pursued but never attained; And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes that hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique and in South Africa in subhuman bondage have been toppled and destroyed; Until bigotry and prejudice and malicious and inhuman self-interest have been replaced by understanding and tolerance and good-will; Until all Africans stand and speak as free beings, equal in the eyes of all men, as they are in the eyes of Heaven; Until that day, the African continent will not know peace. We Africans will fight, if necessary, and we know that we shall win, as we are confident in the victory of good over evil.

I got in everyone's hostile little face. Yes, these are bruises from fighting. Yes, I'm comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

Actually, a lot of people was antisemitic at that time (the US refused to bomb Aushwitz because they didn't want the holocaust to end... says SOME people ). Even here in Sweden we had antisemitic rallies before the start of WWII (not huge ones, but still).

A lot of ignorant people will go to great lengths to find a new scape goat, and this time it just happened to be the Jews.

Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.

Quote by Teddy Roosevelt, 1910
"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

Robert F. Kennedy gave a speech the night Martin Luther King Jr. was killed. Throughout the US, riots erupted in every major city, except Indianapolis, the city in which this speech was delivered. Every word was completely impromptu.

Nay, he convinced congress it was ok. All you need to do to get congress's support is give them a free box of crayons, a 'color the numbers' book, and a few firecrackers to play with.

Martin Luther King.

Listen to "I've been to the mountaintop" to realise not to take your life for granted.
And of course "I have a dream" for equality of all races.


And it's a shame Warren25smash took his old account down, some of his rants were quite inspiring.
I hope it doesn't seem, like I'm young, foolish, and green.
Let me in for a minute, you're not my life but I want you in it
