35 Greatest Speeches in History

35 Greatest Speeches in History
If a man wishes to become a great orator, he must first become a student of the great orators who have come before him. He must immerse himself in their texts, listening for the turns of phrases and textual symmetries, the pauses and crescendos, the metaphors and melodies that have enabled the greatest speeches to stand the test of time. There was not currently a resource on the web to my liking that offered the man who wished to study the greatest orations of all time-from ancient to modern-not only a list of the speeches but a link to the text and a paragraph outlining the context in which the speech was given. So we decided to create one ourselves. The Art of Manliness thus proudly presents the “35 Greatest Speeches in World History,” the finest library of speeches available on the web. These speeches lifted hearts in dark times, gave hope in despair, refined the characters of men, inspired brave feats, gave courage to the weary, honored the dead, and changed the course of history.

The Art of Keylogging with Metasplo Rarely does a week go by without a friend or family member getting their login credentials compromised, then reused for malicious purposes. My wife is always on the lookout on Facebook, warning relatives and friends to change their passwords. Many people don't understand how their credentials get compromised.
