Stein shares, “My father was the first Stein in all history, as far as we know, to have accumulated any real capital. He did that by getting a fine education at Williams College and then at the University of Chicago. He was a stone genius, and among his many aspects of genius was that he knew that he must regularly convert his human capital - his intelligence and education and connections - into financial capital: namely, savings.” By using this story Ben Stein uses ethos because he is a credible source in the situation. He shares this story in spite of trying to prove a point to his son Tommy, that his grandfather started a very important task in life by working hard and saving while he could in order to be successful and for his family to have the opportunity to be successful as well.

Admiral William H. Mcraven addressed the 2014 graduating class at the University of Austin, Texas with more than eight thousand students in attendance. The address given by Adm. Mcraven touched the hearts of millions from all around the world by his inspirational message of how one person can change the world if they simply helped change the lives of ten others in their lifetime. I chose this speech for my rhetorical analysis because of the simple message it portrays, how helping a few can eventually help many. Adm.

In Washington’s 1911 memoir: My Larger Education: Being Chapters from My Experience, Carver was given praise. Washington claimed carver to be “one of the most thoroughly scientific men of the [Black] race who I am aquatinted.” The next leader of the Tuskegee institute, who took over after Washington’s 1915 death, was a lot less strict and demanding as Washington.
