Lou Gehrig’s speech, Farewell to Baseball Address, delivers an emotional punch to the gut as he explains about how lucky he is to have had a wonderful life with some amazing people. He states “I might have been given a bad break, but I have much to live for,” infers his will to live. Because of his positive standing with his fans and many other baseball players, Gehrig was able to utilize effectively ethos throughout his speech. Ethical proof is dependent upon the rhetor’s reputation among his audience and other people; for Gehrig, his reputation was one of a hard-working and determined man and so his audience already held favor with Gehrig. In fact, the first word in Gehrig’s speech is “Fans.” He immediately directly addresses the fans and by doing this, he is unselfishly noting that this speech is for them, the people who had always been there for him.
He has given out excellent points that lead him to his and he has used real life examples to posit the question. “ is this what a Negro American Dream looks like?” clearly, then Mr. Buckley acknowledge he could not fight the ethos of that argument and rather he focused on underestimating the credibility of Baldwin’s and not answering the debate questions.. Buckley wasted lots of time on fancy words and empty bombast before making his points. Mr. Baldwin was very relaxed, comfortable and delivers his speech slowly. When Mr. Baldwin was done speaking the entire audience stood to applaud. Since Baldwin was passionate about the topic, it leads him to win the
Despite his recent diagnosis with ALS, a neurological disorder with no cure, Lou Gehrig is able to maintain a positive and inspirational tone through his use of positive diction in order to stop his fans from pitying him because he still has so much to live for. Gehrig uses many words with a positive connotation, which help create his positive tone. When describing his encounters with “these grand men,” Gehrig uses phrases such as “the highlight of his career” and “honor” to show how lucky he has been. These phrases emphasize his wonderful experiences meeting such famous figures and help him prove, to the audience, that he has lived an incredible life, which he uses to deflect pity from the audience. Gehrig’s word choice has a large impact
It 's not everyday that your opposing candidate actually congratulates you upon their defeat, but this wasn 't the case with Sanders. In fact, this statement concludes that Hilary Clinton did so despite the obvious tension between them, "Secretary Clinton called and was very gracious in her congratulations. I thank her for her call, and I congratulate her and her supporters for the vigorous campaign that they ran in New Hampshire" (Washington Post, 2016). What this shows is that his opposition respects him for the man he is and acknowledges his somewhat effective strategy. Not only that, but in the latter part of his statement he gives his earnest admiration for the effort put forth by the other candidate 's support team.
The volume of Martin Luther King Jr. voices was loud enough where you would go home that night and hear him in your dreams. Martin Luther King Jr. expressed nothing but heart and passion while delivering the speech. He was quite a natural at public
I think by reading this book, that perhaps Harper Lee has fulfilled her intentions with me as a reader, that I have therefore become a better person. I find Atticus a very idealistic, moral character. He has a great sense of humor and tries his best to raise his children as a single parent. I like how Lee used the first part of To Kill a Mockingbird for us to get to know Atticus as a person and a father, not just as a white lawyer defending an African American. Atticus also has strong views on the treatment of whites toward blacks; I loved what he said in the book: "As you grow older, you'll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don't you forget it - whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is
Now, the characters in Everybody Wants Some are great, even if they are ungodly obnoxious. Most of the characters are arrogant, hyperly sexual college boys. Under a different writer, these characters would come off as generic or boring, but Linklater is able to give each character enough development and screen time to make you see under their rough exterior. Glen Powell as the mustached smooth-talking virgin, Finnegan, is a personal favorite, as he spouts deep philosophical teachings to his group of obnoxious baseball teammates. Blake Jenner as Jake, pulls off the nice guy performance perfectly and his chemistry with Zoey Deutch’s Beverly works very nicely too.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer once said ,“ It is very easy to overestimate the importance of our own achievements in comparison with what we owe others.” His quote is very informative as it is very common for people to get lost in the thoughts of how important the things they do are for them. In Beowulf was very proud of all of his achievements which overtime greatly affected him negatively. Where as in Hamlet is more focused on other personal issues, that keeps him distracted from self-achievement. With Beowulf and Hamlet’s personal characteristic of loyalty, bravery, and honor These characteristics are a huge part of how Beowulf and Hamlet are very different, along with how similar they can be as well. Loyalty is being faithful and devoted to someone or something.
You can see this when he repeatedly says, “I…” (1-). Malcolm X likes to refer this situation back to himself, as if he were the only man with the problem. The fact that he does this shows us how he is very into himself instead of worrying about the millions of people this also affects. This proves that King’s “I Have a Dream” speech is much more effective than Malcolm X’s “Ballot or Bullet” speech, just one the count of his personal concern for
At the very beginning of Robbins’ speech, he establishes his credibility and takes hold of the audience's emotions in order to push his message into the minds of his audience. He prompts laughter when he states that as a motivational speaker “the shortest seminar I usually do is 50 hours.” Their confidence in his ability to provide excellent knowledge on this topic is strong, allowing the information to settle in their minds without doubts. Combined with the pathetic response to his quote, the audience becomes relaxed and trusting. Robbins gets their emotions involved from the very start because he knows that they are one of the biggest motivating factors behind actions.

It made many people support him in his sad and frightening time of need. So many people were brought together for giving their love for one of the greats of all time. Who would have thought that a disaster like this would bring so many together. This man had made his career well known for being spoken out for his great hitting records and of course playing for one of, if not, the greatest team to ever exist, The 1920’s New York Yankees. Not many people could do what he did.
I saw so many posts on facebook about the cubs winning and saying they were the fans since day one i started laughing because i knew most of them are lies. My favorite team is the white sox but i was rooting for the cubs because there the other chicago team. I will admit that they had a good roster and good plays this season they played as hard as they can and won. What inspired me was that they never quit when it seemed like they were going to lose. David Ross last game was on November 2 and retired like a champion, it was a good way to leave the MLB that night.
But he takes in stride. “I guess it affects me daily, but at this point it’s something I have to consciously think about. You just kind of deal with it,” Matt says. Talking to Matt, it’d be impossible to tell he lives with such a burden unless you dug past the surface. He stays active, loves English class, and his friends will be quick to tell you, matter-of-factly, he’s “the nicest guy you’ll ever meet.” Baseball has been his favorite sport, favorite hobby, favorite thing in the world for as long as he can remember.
“A Time For Choosing” is a historical speech not in light of its moving words or its suggestion to take action but because of a humble and influential man with the ability to fluently and eloquently speak to the American people with a stern honesty. Reagan’s speech was publicly reran multiple times. its value is still reflected on to this day to be one of the most effective speeches and is notable for redefining the conservative Republican party and a standout amongst the best every constructed to benefit a presidential candidate. Because this discourse was given with the motivation of convincing, instead of celebrating, or moving, there are relatively few illustrations or likenesses. However, he does use a repetitive
