He went off to organize the first Civil Rights protest in the United States. Pathos really helped Wallace’s speech be more effective because people want to believe and feel that they can trust him. Little by little he starts to gain the trust of people by changing his beliefs. Wallace never spoke out in violence about black people, but he did want segregation because he knew he was more liked by people in that form. His famous words, “Segregation today, segregation tomorrow, and segregation forever,” really stayed in people’s minds.
However, both “Letter From Birmingham Jail” and “I Have a Dream’ both contain examples of logos and pathos. When responding to criticisms or try to make a point that helps your cause, the best idea is to use logical responses to prove your point or logos.

The belief of an ideal such as the public good has been the fuel for past leaders that have sought to establish a world of harmony. Plato’s dialogue “The Republic” has sparked countless publications creating such utopian worlds in which the good of the many is sought. The United Nations established the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights” so as to lay the foundation for the good of the public in contemporary times. Revolutionists willing to sacrifice their very lives for the public good are admired for their courage and fearlessness. Yet; history also contains moments when a leaders’ profession to care for the public good was manifested through Nazi concentration camps, Communist societies and the adherence of principles set for Machiavelli’s Prince in maintaining the appearance of desiring the public good in exchange for power.
India is a nation that is known all around for it’s unique cultural and heritage and it is one of the few nations to be so diverse in culture yet so united in its people. I as a citizen of India, am extremely proud to uphold our traditional and cultural value and represent our prosperous nation in countries all around the world. Rabindranath Tagore has been a philosopher I have looked up to ever since I was a child and his philosophies on life and education have inspired me to live a life that I will be proud of. Tagore is a founder of our nation and he harnessed the Indian power during our freedom struggle and funneled them, along with Mahatma Gandhi, to achieve the ultimate right of freedom. Tagore has shaped the modern Indian through his philosophy on teaching and I, like many other young Indians, have benefited from his teachings and plan to carry and teach his philosophies and ideals to the generations to come.
Aaron Tippin’s lyrics show it in a very straightforward way – “I pledge the allegiance to this flag”. Although it could be hard, to stand up after the horrific attacks, people still have a hope and determination to the further fight for their values. This is a theme in the Hank Williams’ “America Will Survive”. But the support and the respect are not only shown by being proud of own country, it is also about appreciating what made the country look like it looks now. As Darry Worley wrote – “We didn’t get to keep ‘em by backing down”.
A good sporting role model should inspire you to better yourself in the sport and in your life. This is exactly what Lance did through his charity work. Lance Armstrong was a hard worker and encouraged millions of people to push their limits and challenge the impossible. He was a true inspiration and had the characteristics to embody a great sporting role model.

People become successful in their careers because they learn from their failures and they do not let negativity affect their work. They keep trying because they believe that they will succeed one day. Our school motto was “Strive for the best, for the best is still to come” and this motto was imbibed in us every day by our school principal during his speech in the morning assembly. Whenever I face daunting challenges, I remember this motto and try to overcome the challenges.
