Some famous speeches were very well written, but their delivery also counted for quite a lot too. Here are four famous informative speeches that each had their own qualities. And it was these qualities that made them both unique and amazing.
Martin Luther King made his “I have a dream speech” with such passion that it is still widely mentioned today as probably one of the best speeches ever made. Suffice it to say that, that particular part is still quoted today all over popular media. The quality that this particular speech had was passion.
John F. Kennedy did have quite a well written inaugural speech when he first took power in America. However, all the way through the election he had shown a great deal of charm, and it seemed to carry through to his inaugural speech. It was the charm that the man displayed that’s helped turn his good speech into a great speech. It also cannot be denied that he did execute the speech very well, and that it was thankfully not as long as most inaugural speeches are.
The speech that Bill Clinton gave when he denied his affair with Monica Lewinsky, may not have been his finest moment. But the speech was given with a great deal of strength. His demeanor, his body language, and the tone of his voice was very stern. He even shook his finger as if he were telling off a child. He even moved his hand as if he were thumping an invisible surface. His famous informative speech may have been untruthful, but it was incredibly good and convincing, due to the amount of strength he put into his words and movement.
Winston Churchill gave his “we will fight them on the beaches of speech” at the beginning of the Second World War. He may not have been the world’s greatest speaker, in that his tone of voice rarely deviated beyond a few simple tones, but the stubbornness of his words and the execution of his speech had a great effect as he defied the oncoming invasion. This was one occasion where things such as charm, showmanship and personality took a sidestep to an incredibly well written speech. The great thing was also that instead of simply stating that he was going to defy the Nazi party, who made it quite clear just how tenacious the British were going to be.
