However, their tones are different, as Jobs formally delivers the mottos, while King approaches them in a more informal tone. In Jobs commencement speech, he discusses his termination from Apple, but how he continued to work even though this significant failure in his life occurred. The following sentence after the anecdote is “Don’t lose faith” (Jobs). Jobs approaches these mottos formally and delivers them as business mottos because he is highly involved in the business world. King hypothesizes the Vassar Graduate’s potential impacts on society and the American economy, and how they cannot mess it up like the previous generation.
“If you fall behind, run faster, never give up, never surrender and fight until the end”- Jesse Jackson. This concept of staying strong even when something hard and never let someone else get into your head has a direct relationship with Steve Jobs like no other. Steve Jobs shared how his biggest downfalls lead to his greatest peaks during his “Stanford 2005 Commencement Address.” Some may say that Jobs’ successes define him, however it was his challenges that defined him because it erected his love for calligraphy and technology, it fostered his creativity, and taught him to appreciate each day like it was his last. Steve Jobs went to Reed College and dropped out during the first six months because, he thought that college was too expensive and he did not like the classes he was talking at the time. In this quote Jobs explains what success had resulted from being a college
He says you should find something that interests you, but something you can expand on. A solid platform to start your journey, while also being rational and realistic to your goals and future. Job emphasized the importance of finding what you love regardless of the consequences. Other than Haden’s opening title, he was respectful and didn’t disrespect Steve Jobs. I expected worse and believed his paper would be about targeting Jobs as an individual.

In this excerpt, which is a commencement address, are aware of the message, which is kindness. We see the kindness because George Sanders are telling about his time at the university he re-grets that he hasn’t been kind enough he are establishing some actions where we should have shown kindness. For example at page 2 line 87-88 he says “What I regret most in my life are fail-ures of kindness” Here it’s clear to us as a reader that George Sanders are trying to tell the audi-ence that being kind is a great quality and one should try to accomplish it. For example he tells us about some of his mistakes in his life. He tells us something about a new kid in class who had a hard time; the people weren’t nice to her and George
Even though the speech touches on a somewhat serious topic, George Saunders manages to keep the speech from becoming dreary with his use of humor which is persistent throughout the speech. George Saunders talks about kindness and how you become kinder throughout your life. George Saunders talks about his view on kindness and how to become kinder with an ethical appeal. He talks about his own experience in his life and how all the things he has experienced have helped him become kinder with age and how the things he regrets the most in his life are “failures of kindness”. He has knowledge and experience that help him come across to the audience as a person who knows what he is talking about and that he is not
It is not your average speech on how to be successful in the real world, but instead, it is how to live a happier life. Saunders reminds us that kindness to others goes a long way. He sheds light on life’s biggest regret, no swimming in a river full of monkey feces, but a missed opportunity. The speech is definitely worth an ear. George Saunders begins is speech is a simple advice, ask an older person what they regret
When he starts the speech off with “If anybody feels like perspiring, I’d advise you to go ahead, because I’m sure going to”, he’s already using ethos to build a rapport with his audience, as if to say: It’s okay. I’m not here to lecture you or belittle you, or to tell you how to live your life. I’m here to show you what life is really about. He begins with revealing the gimmicky genre of the commencement speech by fulfilling a “standard requirement of US commencement speeches, the deployment of didactic little parable-ish stories”. His story is as follows: “There are these two young fish swimming along and they happen to meet an older fish swimming the other way, who nods at them and says “Morning, boys.
Great Storytelling Lu Jia Delivered on a campus in California to an audience of a few thousands, yet it ended up inspiring tens of millions from both U.S. and worldwide; worshiped by Silicon Valley as the ultimate career talk, yet it embodied many aspects of life - chance, love, loss, and ultimately death. Short but smart, targeted yet universal, poignant and timeless – thus is Steve Jobs’ 2005 commencement address at Stanford. Some attribute its success to Jobs’ personal influence and charisma – they do add significant weight to the speech, undeniably. But close inspections from the lenses of rhetorical analysis allow us to appreciate this speech from a different perspective – in particular, how the speech was crafted into a fitting response to its rhetorical situation and how Jobs managed to strike a chord with his audience through the masterful use of logos, pathos and ethos, whether planned or not. It is often meaningless to evaluate a speech without first considering its context and purposes.
