Yes, I really think MLK's "I had a dream" speech takes some beating. Probably, for rhetoric and passion some of Hitler's speeches were a lot more powerful but as I don't speak any German I really couldn't say.

Why must you bring Hitler into nearly every conversation?

I don't think I've ever mentioned Hitler at all but please feel free to draw my attention to any specific posts.

I brought Hitler into this particular thread because his extraordinary skill as an orator is widely acknowledged and as we are talking about great speeches thought it a valid contribution.

So what's your problem?

I liked Kennedy's...

"And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you- ask what you can do for your country.

My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man."

Martin Luther King's speech was great though.

I think Howard is right. The Nazi's came to power in Germany because, partly, of Hitler's excellent skills as an orator.

What? You got the "impression" that I bring Hitler into every thread? How odd.

The greatest speech, simpy was, "Look guys, don't arrest me, it's not my car, honest" - Quite simply the most funny, memorable quote ever by Arfano K Hussain.

Error.
It was the most memorable quote of all time, in my view.

Marc Antony's oration at Caesar's funeral.
Except that wasn't a real one - that was Shakespeare. He wrote a few good ones

My favourite film one at the moment is "I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of Men fails; when we forsake our friends, and break all bonds of fellowship. An hour of woes and shattered shields when the world of Men comes crashing down, but it is not this day! This day, we fight!"

Followed, shortly afterwards, by the shortest but most moving - "For Frodo."

Obsessive, moi?

Anyway, back to real life - I'd say some of Churchill's speeches in the war "We will fight them on the beaches..." "...If the British Empire last a thousand years, men will still say 'This was their finest hour.' "
