As the speech was held when FDR was nearing the end of his fourth and final term as president, the popularity he gained from his difficult times as the president established a trustworthy character, thus giving him great ethos. Roosevelt’s immediate audience for this speech was the members of the United State Congress, as he asks them to make a formal declaration of war. The other audience for this speech was the United States public as a whole. The people of the United States was very receptive, and over 81 percent of American homes tuned in to hear the
Elvis started out as a middle-class working American (Scheiber). President at the time, Jimmy Carter, said that he was America’s “vitality, rebelliousness, and good humor” (“Elvis Presley” St. James Encyclopedia of Popular Culture). This comment shows how Elvis impacted America by being full of energy, crazy, and funny. Of course everyone liked him as well as the president of the United States. He represented America in a way.
He got the audience’s attention by channeling the symbolic meaning of the song ‘My Country tis of Thee’. For example, King “Envisioning an America whose children could all sing with new and true meaning the proud claim “sweet land of liberty” in its namesake hymn, he brought his speech to its unforgettable crescendo with his refrain: “I have a dream”—a dream not apart from or against, but rather of, from, and for America—“a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.”(Myers). Referring back to I’ve Been to the Mountaintop, King grabbed the audience by diving right into the
Bill Shankly is arguably the most famous figure in Liverpool Football Club's illustrious history. A charismatic man who realised his dream of turning us into English football's most dominant force, the Scot's spirit has quite rightly been immortalised in the very foundations of our club. His name is synonymous with the very meaning of the 'Liverpool way' and it is his legacy that has seen us go on and conquer Europe on no fewer than five occasions, while monopolising the domestic game for over two decades. And yet, such glory was way beyond even the most optimistic Kopites' dreams when Shanks was appointed Liverpool's ninth manager on December 1, 1959. As the final whistle blew on his first match in charge 18 days later the prospect
People can hear the same speech and interpret it differently. John F. Kennedy, the 35th president of the Unites States, knew this fact when addressing the world through his “Inaugural Address”. His speech was given in Washington D.C., on the east front of the Capitol, on July 20th 1961. There were high expectations placed on his inaugural address, as he had won the election by one of the smallest vote margins in history. Many people were concerned since Kennedy, the youngest to be elected to office, was succeeding the then oldest U.S. President, Dwight Eisenhower.
On a cold day in 1961, John F. Kennedy delivered a speech to the citizens and peoples of both America and the world. After the end of a close and competitive election, he used this speech not to celebrate his victory as president, but to unite the audience. He addresses the audience with a statement that would be remembered for years to come, as its call to duty is a powerful one. A strong appeal to ethics─ not only his ethics but our ethics as a country united through shared values─ and powerfully emotional and logical arguments are used to convince the audience to take a stand and make a difference. Additionally, he appeals to the rest of the world by referring to different areas and countries of the globe while also connecting all human beings together as one population.

When he stated, “He must therefore be a fox to discern toils, and a lion to drive off wolves,” (46) he expresses that a prince should be able to discern whether to use force or deceit when dealing with different situations. Machiavelli also stated that princes that played the fox had more success than those who fully relied on the lion. His most important statement about wisdom is that a prince should know when to exhibit good conduct to preserve his rule, but also is able to use evil methods when he has
Yann Martel compares Christ’s suffering with the suffering of Pi on the lifeboat with no water. With that aspects being compared the reader can already estimate the future conditions that there will be a positive outcome of Pi’s tragic journey just like there was with Christ. Pi could not let his fear for the tiger stand in his way of being alive. If he would have allowed that, that would have caused him to get scared, lose his concentration and becoming vulnerable to the tiger. Deep down he knew there was a living God that will help and guide
