The one detail I can tell you there is always a few that will linger and stick around in your head. These speeches go through history as being remembered and studied for decades. A few that come to mind happen to be “I have a dream” by Martin Luther King, “Never give up…Don’t ever give up,” by Jimmy Valvano and “You’ve got to find what you love,” by Steve Jobs.

    When I began writing my commencement speech I knew that I wanted to use humor as a main theme. When we watched the speech examples in class the ones that I really took material away from and the ones that stuck with me the longest were the ones that were funny and had humor sprinkled throughout. Other than the humor part I had no idea what I wanted my speech to be about but I knew that I needed to stick with a common theme throughout or it would be a mess. Once I had the reoccurring dream about

    Education is knowledge obtained in order to reach one’s full potential. A human being is not in the proper sense until they are educated. Two commencement speeches, “Failure and Imagination” by J.K. Rowling and “Real Freedom?” by David Wallace, and an article titled “The 4-Stage Response to Low Student Achievement” by John Lemuel, all have several aspects of education in common and provide knowledge and inspiration about the real idea and necessity for education. In these works, they all use personal

    In the world of speeches, two powerful types of speeches stand out above the rest. Church sermons and campaign speeches are very important.

    I can also look at the different forms of personal pronouns that are used by the speakers. Both Cook and Pichai’s speeches use “We” the vast majority of the time, but occasionally use “I”, depending on the context. There are no significant differences between the two speakers’ use of language here. “I” is occasionally used when the speaker is talking about something personal to them - as in “I know this is incredibly important”, from Cook’s speech. This is used to separate the speaker from the

    The speeches of Aphrodite and Artemis give great insight on cosmic order of the world and the roles a god and man automatically align with. Aphrodite’s speech shows the gods’ immense power to predestine events, actions, and behavior. Artemis’ speech delves into the restrictions on gods such as the inability to go against another gods wishes. The two express their love for humans that worship them, but the justice they portray is not a favorable one. Aphrodite shows how gods’ ambitions could override

    Some people have asked to read the commencement address I delivered this morning to the 2013 graduates of Butler University. So here it is. My own commencement speaker, who shall remain nameless, began with a lame joke about how these speeches only come in two varieties: Short and bad. This raised my expectations, and then he went onto speak for 26 minutes, so I’m just going to tell you now: 12 minutes flat, 11:45 if you don’t laugh. Congratulations to all of you here today, and I do mean all of
