WHO IS IT? WHO IS THE ONE PERSON ABOVE ALL THE REST? WHO IS THE GREATEST?

Hold back! 

Whoa! 

TheThinker

And exactly what did I mean by that title? 

WHO IS IT? WHO IS THE ONE PERSON ABOVE ALL THE REST? WHO IS THE GREATEST?

I’m talking about the best writers and Orators and not all of them by any means.  But, here goes-

Before I get the 1st thousand of comments for all of you, please, take the time to really think who’s words come haunting back to your mind with maybe kindness of heart or other words that were intensely thought provoking?  Don’t jump on the SEARCH ENGINE RIDE.  I mean you should already have some people in your mind right now.  But who is it?  A man or a Woman?  A Public Official?  A Public Figure?  Or a nobody that still awoke that special-ness in you that only a good writer and orator can do.  But who is it for you?  Yes, who is it?

But now, for me, I want to share some mighty amazing folks for all of you and I’m going to start this one out for my friends from India.   Hey there!  And now, here’s some very wonderful folks who are the best in the their use of word power.

Let’s start with

  1.  SWAMI VIVEKANANDA
  2.  ARVIND KEJRIWAL
  3. ATAL BIHARI VAJPAYEE
  4. INDIRA GANDHI
  5. Narendra Modi
  6. Lalu Prasad Yadav
  7. Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose 
  8. Atal Bihari Vajpayee
  9. Shashi Tharoor
  10. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
  11. Balasaheb Thackeray

Okay now, for all of you who don’t have a clue about any of the above individuals, I do apologize.  But it would be of importance to go searching on the Internet about all eleven I listed.  And why did I pick India?  Folks, India’s history is one of Legions.  It is utterly fascinating and mysterious as India’s History goes far, I mean really far back in time.  Maybe when time itself began-

Ancient History

India’s history and culture is dynamic, spanning back to the beginning of human civilization. It begins with a mysterious culture along the Indus River and in farming communities in the southern lands of India. The history of India is punctuated by constant integration of migrating people with the diverse cultures that surround India. Available evidence suggests that the use of iron, copper and other metals was widely prevalent in the Indian sub-continent at a fairly early period, which is indicative of the progress that this part of the world had made. By the end of the fourth millennium BC, India had emerged as a region of highly developed civilization.

 

The Indus Valley Civilization

The History of India begins with the birth of the Indus Valley Civilization, more precisely known as Harappan Civilization. It flourished around 2,500 BC, in the western part of South Asia, what today is Pakistan and Western India. The Indus Valley was home to the largest of the four ancient urban civilizations of Egypt, Mesopotamia, India and China. Nothing was known about this civilization till 1920s when the Archaeological Department of India carried out excavations in the Indus valley wherein the ruins of the two old cities, viz. Mohenjodaro and Harappa were unearthed. The ruins of buildings and other things like household articles, weapons of war, gold and silver ornaments, seals, toys, pottery wares, etc., show that some four to five thousand years ago a highly developed Civilization flourished in this region.

The Indus valley civilization was basically an urban civilization and the people lived in well-planned and well-built towns, which were also the centers for trade. The ruins of Mohenjodaro and Harappa show that these were magnificent merchant cities-well planned, scientifically laid, and well looked after. They had wide roads and a well-developed drainage system. The houses were made of baked bricks and had two or more storeys.

The highly civilized Harappans knew the art of growing cereals, and wheat and barley constituted their staple food. They consumed vegetables and fruits and ate mutton, pork and eggs as well. Evidences also show that they wore cotton as well as woollen garments. By 1500 BC, the Harappan culture came to an end. Among various causes ascribed to the decay of Indus Valley Civilization are the recurrent floods and other natural causes like earthquake, etc.

 

Vedic Civilization

The Vedic civilization is the earliest civilization in the history of ancient India. It is named after the Vedas, the early literature of the Hindu people. The Vedic Civilization flourished along the river Saraswati, in a region that now consists of the modern Indian states of Haryana and Punjab. Vedic is synonymous with Hinduism, which is another name for religious and spiritual thought that has evolved from the Vedas.

The Ramayana and Mahabharata were the two great epics of this period.

 

The Buddhist Era

During the life time of Lord Gautam Buddha, sixteen great powers (Mahajanpadas) existed in the 7th and early 6th centuries BC. Among the more important republics were the Sakyas of Kapilavastu and the Licchavis of Vaishali.

Alexander’s Invasion

In 326 BC, Alexander invaded India, after crossing the river Indus he advanced towards Taxila. He then challenged king Porus , ruler of the kingdom between the rivers Jhelum and Chenab. The Indians were defeated in the fierce battle, even though they fought with elephants, which the Macedonians had never before seen. Alexander captured Porus and, like the other local rulers he had defeated, allowed him to continue to govern his territory.

Gupta Dynasty

After the Kushanas, the Guptas were the most important dynasty. The Gupta period has been described as the Golden Age of Indian history. The first famous king of the Gupta dynasty was Ghatotkacha’s son Chandragupta I. He married Kumaradevi, the daughter of the chief of the Licchavis. This marriage was a turning point in the life of Chandragupta I. He got Pataliputra in dowry from the Lichhavis. From Pataliputra, he laid the foundation of his empire and started conquering many neighbouring states with the help of the Licchavis. He ruled over Magadha (Bihar), Prayaga and Saketa (east Uttar Pradesh). His kingdom extended from the river Ganges to Allahabad. Chandragupta I also got the title of Maharajadhiraja (King of Kings) and ruled for about fifteen years.

Harshavardhana

With the commencement of the 7th century, Harshavardhana (606-647 A.D.) ascended the throne of Thaneshwar and Kannauj on the death of his brother, Rajyavardhana. By 612 Harshavardhana consolidated his kingdom in northern India.

In 620 A.D. Harshavardhana invaded the Chalukya kingdom in the Deccan, which was then ruled by Pulakesin II. But the Chalukya resistance proved tough for Harshavardhana and he was defeated. Harshavardhana is well known for his religious toleration, able administration and diplomatic relations. He maintained diplomatic relations with China and sent envoys, who exchanged ideas of the Chinese rulers and developed their knowledge about each other.

Wow!  And if you want to know more, then just hit this link which was at the top and in now being repeated in case you missed it-

https://knowindia.gov.in/culture-and-heritage/ancient-history.php

But why say any of that?  Why?  Because with a profound and long history comes men and women who have a long lineage of tremendous oratory skills.  Skills that are no match for many in the World today because so few will bother to come to terms of one’s own ignorance.  Man must accept that he is infinitely ignorant.  But not on purpose.  The reason that I say that is man simply does not have enough time in one lifetime to master just a glimpse of all the works produced by the greatest minds that are alive today or those that have lived.

But we must still continue to strive to move forward with knowledge.  Knowledge is good for you.  It is good for me. It is good for all of us.  It always puts a smile on my face when I see someone using or saying or writing one of the great words from one of the Orators from India.  And here in America, a lot of sayings are not ours, but they have their roots firmly planted in and from India.   So, know that today, you will get caught using words from others.  But I pretty much don’t mind about someone using mind as long as they don’t make me look like a Stupido or other negativity.  Lol.

Now, let’s jump to Russia.  Oh yeah, they too have had amazing orators too.  And some are the following-

  1. Vladimir Putin

And why did I say this?  You might jump back and say no way.  But if you review all of his speeches, there is pure genius in what he says.  But there is a truly gifted Orator in how he says it.  And no, I am in a crunch for time, so I will not go farther here.

 

Now, how about England?

 

  1. Winston Churchill

And Lordy, I mean Lordy, the many, many words spoke and written by Mr. Churchill is simply wonderful and so very obvious that he did consecrate on using the correct word at exactly the right place in every sentence.  A man that few will ever be able to compete with.  And no, there are so many others from England and ones that I do so dearly love and adore.  But time is not on my hand today in this write.  So, please excuse me.

In Germany, maybe the best orator of all time is-

  1. Adolf Hitler who once said-“I know that men are won over less by the written than by the spoken word, that every great movement on this earth owes its growth to great orators and not to great writers.” —Adolf Hitler, “Mein Kampf,” 1925

And if you don’t want to even consider Adolf Hitler as a great Orator, then you must bury your head in the sand and then confess that you do not believe WWII ever took place either.  The man motivated a Nation and he motivated them with fiery words in fiery speeches that invoked the very seed of Explosive Man to appear.

And here in the United States-

  1.  Dr. Martin Luther King, jr.
  2. President John F. Kennedy.
  3. Malcolm X and I want to open you up to more about this amazing man and here is an a eye-opening exert from the following:

Biography

Malcolm X was born Malcolm Little on May 19, 1925 in Omaha, Nebraska. His mother, Louise Norton Little, was a homemaker occupied with the family’s eight children. His father, Earl Little, was an outspoken Baptist minister and avid supporter of Black Nationalist leader Marcus Garvey. Earl’s civil rights activism prompted death threats from the white supremacist organization Black Legion, forcing the family to relocate twice before Malcolm’s fourth birthday.

Regardless of the Little’s efforts to elude the Legion, in 1929 their Lansing, Michigan home was burned to the ground. Two years later, Earl’s body was found lying across the town’s trolley tracks. Police ruled both incidents as accidents, but the Little’s were certain that members of the Black Legion were responsible. Louise suffered emotional breakdown several years after the death of her husband and was committed to a mental institution. Her children were split up amongst various foster homes and orphanages.

Police ruled both incidents as accidents, but the Little’s were certain that members of the Black Legion were responsible. Louise suffered emotional breakdown several years after the death of her husband and was committed to a mental institution. Her children were split up amongest various foster homes and orphanages.

Eventually Malcolm and his buddy, Malcolm “Shorty” Jarvis, moved back to Boston. In 1946 they were arrested and convicted on burglary charges, and Malcolm was sentenced to 10 years in prison. (He was paroled after serving seven years.) Recalling his days in school, he used the time to further his education. It was during this period of self-enlightenment that Malcolm’s brother Reginald would visit and discuss his recent conversion to the Muslim religion. Reginald belonged to the religious organization the Nation of Islam (NOI).

Intrigued, Malcolm began to study the teachings of NOI leader Elijah Muhammad. Muhammad taught that white society actively worked to keep African-Americans from empowering themselves and achieving political, economic and social success. Among other goals, the NOI fought for a state of their own, separate from one inhabited by white people. By the time he was paroled in 1952, Malcolm was a devoted follower with the new surname “X.” (He considered “Little” a slave name and chose the “X” to signify his lost tribal name.)

Intelligent and articulate, Malcolm was appointed as a minister and national spokesman for the Nation of Islam. Elijah Muhammad also charged him with establishing new mosques in cities such as Detroit, Michigan and Harlem, New York. Malcolm utilized newspaper columns, as well as radio and television to communicate the NOI’s message across the United States. His charisma, drive and conviction attracted an astounding number of new members. Malcolm was largely credited with increasing membership in the NOI from 500 in 1952 to 30,000 in 1963.

5.  President George W. Bush.  And this man’s speech to Congress and all of America and the World after 9-11-01 was about the most amazing speeches I have ever witnessed in my entire life.  It was very well written and President Bush’s Delivery was way past superb. And now, here is that amazing speech for you to read maybe for the 1st time-

ADDRESS TO THE JOINT SESSION OF THE 107TH CONGRESS
UNITED STATES CAPITOL
WASHINGTON, D.C.
SEPTEMBER 20, 2001
Mr. Speaker, Mr. President Pro Tempore, members of Congress,
and fellow Americans:
In the normal course of events, Presidents come to this chamber
to report on the state of the Union. Tonight, no such report is
needed. It has already been delivered by the American people.
We have seen it in the courage of passengers, who rushed
terrorists to save others on the ground — passengers like an
exceptional man named Todd Beamer. And would you please help
me to welcome his wife, Lisa Beamer, here tonight.
We have seen the state of our Union in the endurance of rescuers,
working past exhaustion. We have seen the unfurling of fl ags, the
lighting of candles, the giving of blood, the saying of prayers — in
English, Hebrew, and Arabic. We have seen the decency of a loving
and giving people who have made the grief of strangers their own.
My fellow citizens, for the last nine days, the entire world has
seen for itself the state of our Union — and it is strong.
Tonight we are a country awakened to danger and called to
defend freedom. Our grief has turned to anger, and anger to
resolution. Whether we bring our enemies to justice, or bring
justice to our enemies, justice will be done.
I thank the Congress for its leadership at such an important
time. All of America was touched on the evening of the tragedy
to see Republicans and Democrats joined together on the steps
of this Capitol, singing “God Bless America.” And you did more
than sing; you acted, by delivering $40 billion to rebuild our
communities and meet the needs of our military.
Speaker Hastert, Minority Leader Gephardt, Majority Leader
Daschle and Senator Lott, I thank you for your friendship, for your
leadership and for your service to our country.
————
66
And on behalf of the American people, I thank the world for its
outpouring of support. America will never forget the sounds of our
National Anthem playing at Buckingham Palace, on the streets of
Paris, and at Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate.
We will not forget South Korean children gathering to pray
outside our embassy in Seoul, or the prayers of sympathy offered at
a mosque in Cairo. We will not forget moments of silence and days
of mourning in Australia and Africa and Latin America.
Nor will we forget the citizens of 80 other nations who died
with our own: dozens of Pakistanis; more than 130 Israelis; more
than 250 citizens of India; men and women from El Salvador, Iran,
Mexico and Japan; and hundreds of British citizens. America
has no truer friend than Great Britain. Once again, we are joined
together in a great cause — so honored the British Prime Minister
has crossed an ocean to show his unity of purpose with America.
Thank you for coming, friend.
On September the 11th, enemies of freedom committed an act
of war against our country. Americans have known wars — but
for the past 136 years, they have been wars on foreign soil, except
for one Sunday in 1941. Americans have known the casualties of
war — but not at the center of a great city on a peaceful morning.
Americans have known surprise attacks — but never before on
thousands of civilians. All of this was brought upon us in a single
day — and night fell on a different world, a world where freedom
itself is under attack.
Americans have many questions tonight. Americans are asking:
Who attacked our country? The evidence we have gathered all
points to a collection of loosely affi liated terrorist organizations
known as al Qaeda. They are the same murderers indicted
for bombing American embassies in Tanzania and Kenya, and
responsible for bombing the USS Cole.
Al Qaeda is to terror what the mafi a is to crime. But its goal is
not making money; its goal is remaking the world — and imposing
its radical beliefs on people everywhere.
The terrorists practice a fringe form of Islamic extremism that
————
67
has been rejected by Muslim scholars and the vast majority of
Muslim clerics — a fringe movement that perverts the peaceful
teachings of Islam. The terrorists’ directive commands them to kill
Christians and Jews, to kill all Americans, and make no distinction
among military and civilians, including women and children.
This group and its leader — a person named Osama bin Laden
— are linked to many other organizations in different countries,
including the Egyptian Islamic Jihad and the Islamic Movement
of Uzbekistan. There are thousands of these terrorists in more
than 60 countries. They are recruited from their own nations and
neighborhoods and brought to camps in places like Afghanistan,
where they are trained in the tactics of terror. They are sent back to
their homes or sent to hide in countries around the world to plot evil
and destruction.
The leadership of al Qaeda has great infl uence in Afghanistan
and supports the Taliban regime in controlling most of that country.
In Afghanistan, we see al Qaeda’s vision for the world.
Afghanistan’s people have been brutalized — many are starving
and many have fl ed. Women are not allowed to attend school. You
can be jailed for owning a television. Religion can be practiced
only as their leaders dictate. A man can be jailed in Afghanistan if
his beard is not long enough.
The United States respects the people of Afghanistan — after
all, we are currently its largest source of humanitarian aid — but
we condemn the Taliban regime. It is not only repressing its own
people, it is threatening people everywhere by sponsoring and
sheltering and supplying terrorists. By aiding and abetting murder,
the Taliban regime is committing murder.
And tonight, the United States of America makes the following
demands on the Taliban: Deliver to United States authorities
all the leaders of al Qaeda who hide in your land. Release all
foreign nationals, including American citizens, you have unjustly
imprisoned. Protect foreign journalists, diplomats and aid workers
in your country. Close immediately and permanently every terrorist
training camp in Afghanistan, and hand over every terrorist, and
————
68
every person in their support structure, to appropriate authorities.
Give the United States full access to terrorist training camps, so we
can make sure they are no longer operating.
These demands are not open to negotiation or discussion. The
Taliban must act, and act immediately. They will hand over the
terrorists, or they will share in their fate.
I also want to speak tonight directly to Muslims throughout the
world. We respect your faith. It’s practiced freely by many millions
of Americans, and by millions more in countries that America
counts as friends. Its teachings are good and peaceful, and those
who commit evil in the name of Allah blaspheme the name of Allah.
The terrorists are traitors to their own faith, trying, in effect, to
hijack Islam itself. The enemy of America is not our many Muslim
friends; it is not our many Arab friends. Our enemy is a radical
network of terrorists, and every government that supports them.
Our war on terror begins with al Qaeda, but it does not end there.
It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been
found, stopped and defeated.
Americans are asking, why do they hate us? They hate what
we see right here in this chamber — a democratically elected
government. Their leaders are self-appointed. They hate our
freedoms — our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our
freedom to vote and assemble and disagree with each other.
They want to overthrow existing governments in many Muslim
countries, such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan. They want to
drive Israel out of the Middle East. They want to drive Christians
and Jews out of vast regions of Asia and Africa.
These terrorists kill not merely to end lives, but to disrupt and
end a way of life. With every atrocity, they hope that America
grows fearful, retreating from the world and forsaking our friends.
They stand against us, because we stand in their way.
We are not deceived by their pretenses to piety. We have seen
their kind before. They are the heirs of all the murderous ideologies
of the 20th century. By sacrifi cing human life to serve their radical
visions — by abandoning every value except the will to power —
————
69
they follow in the path of fascism, and Nazism, and totalitarianism.
And they will follow that path all the way, to where it ends: in
history’s unmarked grave of discarded lies.
Americans are asking: How will we fi ght and win this war?
We will direct every resource at our command — every means
of diplomacy, every tool of intelligence, every instrument of law
enforcement, every fi nancial infl uence, and every necessary weapon
of war — to the disruption and to the defeat of the global terror
network.
This war will not be like the war against Iraq a decade ago, with
a decisive liberation of territory and a swift conclusion. It will not
look like the air war above Kosovo two years ago, where no ground
troops were used and not a single American was lost in combat.
Our response involves far more than instant retaliation and
isolated strikes. Americans should not expect one battle, but a
lengthy campaign, unlike any other we have ever seen. It may
include dramatic strikes, visible on TV, and covert operations, secret
even in success. We will starve terrorists of funding, turn them
one against another, drive them from place to place, until there is
no refuge or no rest. And we will pursue nations that provide aid
or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation, in every region, now
has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with
the terrorists. From this day forward, any nation that continues to
harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as
a hostile regime.
Our nation has been put on notice: We are not immune from
attack. We will take defensive measures against terrorism to protect
Americans. Today, dozens of federal departments and agencies, as
well as state and local governments, have responsibilities affecting
homeland security. These efforts must be coordinated at the highest
level. So tonight I announce the creation of a Cabinet-level position
reporting directly to me — the Offi ce of Homeland Security.
And tonight I also announce a distinguished American to lead
this effort, to strengthen American security: a military veteran, an
effective governor, a true patriot, a trusted friend — Pennsylvania’s
————
70
Tom Ridge. He will lead, oversee and coordinate a comprehensive
national strategy to safeguard our country against terrorism, and
respond to any attacks that may come.
These measures are essential. But the only way to defeat
terrorism as a threat to our way of life is to stop it, eliminate it, and
destroy it where it grows.
Many will be involved in this effort, from FBI agents to
intelligence operatives to the reservists we have called to active
duty. All deserve our thanks, and all have our prayers. And tonight,
a few miles from the damaged Pentagon, I have a message for our
military: Be ready. I’ve called the Armed Forces to alert, and there
is a reason. The hour is coming when America will act, and you
will make us proud.
This is not, however, just America’s fi ght. And what is at stake
is not just America’s freedom. This is the world’s fi ght. This is
civilization’s fi ght. This is the fi ght of all who believe in progress
and pluralism, tolerance and freedom.
We ask every nation to join us. We will ask, and we will need,
the help of police forces, intelligence services, and banking systems
around the world. The United States is grateful that many nations
and many international organizations have already responded —
with sympathy and with support. Nations from Latin America, to
Asia, to Africa, to Europe, to the Islamic world. Perhaps the NATO
Charter refl ects best the attitude of the world: An attack on one is
an attack on all.
The civilized world is rallying to America’s side. They
understand that if this terror goes unpunished, their own cities,
their own citizens may be next. Terror, unanswered, can not only
bring down buildings, it can threaten the stability of legitimate
governments. And you know what — we’re not going to allow it.
Americans are asking: What is expected of us? I ask you to live
your lives, and hug your children. I know many citizens have fears
tonight, and I ask you to be calm and resolute, even in the face of a
continuing threat.
I ask you to uphold the values of America, and remember why
————
71
so many have come here. We are in a fi ght for our principles, and
our fi rst responsibility is to live by them. No one should be singled
out for unfair treatment or unkind words because of their ethnic
background or religious faith.
I ask you to continue to support the victims of this tragedy with
your contributions. Those who want to give can go to a central
source of information, libertyunites.org, to fi nd the names of groups
providing direct help in New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
The thousands of FBI agents who are now at work in this
investigation may need your cooperation, and I ask you to give it.
I ask for your patience, with the delays and inconveniences that
may accompany tighter security; and for your patience in what will
be a long struggle.
I ask your continued participation and confi dence in the
American economy. Terrorists attacked a symbol of American
prosperity. They did not touch its source. America is successful
because of the hard work, and creativity, and enterprise of our
people. These were the true strengths of our economy before
September 11th, and they are our strengths today.
And, fi nally, please continue praying for the victims of terror
and their families, for those in uniform, and for our great country.
Prayer has comforted us in sorrow, and will help strengthen us for
the journey ahead.
Tonight I thank my fellow Americans for what you have already
done and for what you will do. And ladies and gentlemen of the
Congress, I thank you, their representatives, for what you have
already done and for what we will do together. Tonight, we face
new and sudden national challenges. We will come together
to improve air safety, to dramatically expand the number of air
marshals on domestic fl ights, and take new measures to prevent
hijacking. We will come together to promote stability and keep our
airlines fl ying, with direct assistance during this emergency.
We will come together to give law enforcement the additional
tools it needs to track down terror here at home. We will come
together to strengthen our intelligence capabilities to know the plans
————
72
of terrorists before they act, and fi nd them before they strike.
We will come together to take active steps that strengthen
America’s economy, and put our people back to work.
Tonight we welcome two leaders who embody the extraordinary
spirit of all New Yorkers: Governor George Pataki, and Mayor
Rudolph Giuliani. As a symbol of America’s resolve, my
administration will work with Congress, and these two leaders, to
show the world that we will rebuild New York City.
After all that has just passed — all the lives taken, and all the
possibilities and hopes that died with them — it is natural to wonder
if America’s future is one of fear. Some speak of an age of terror.
I know there are struggles ahead, and dangers to face. But this
country will defi ne our times, not be defi ned by them. As long as
the United States of America is determined and strong, this will not
be an age of terror; this will be an age of liberty, here and across the
world.
Great harm has been done to us. We have suffered great loss.
And in our grief and anger we have found our mission and our
moment. Freedom and fear are at war. The advance of human
freedom — the great achievement of our time, and the great hope
of every time — now depends on us. Our nation — this generation
— will lift a dark threat of violence from our people and our future.
We will rally the world to this cause by our efforts, by our courage.
We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail.
It is my hope that in the months and years ahead, life will return
almost to normal. We’ll go back to our lives and routines, and that
is good. Even grief recedes with time and grace. But our resolve
must not pass. Each of us will remember what happened that day,
and to whom it happened. We’ll remember the moment the news
came — where we were and what we were doing. Some will
remember an image of a fi re, or a story of rescue. Some will carry
memories of a face and a voice gone forever.
And I will carry this: It is the police shield of a man named
George Howard, who died at the World Trade Center trying to save
others. It was given to me by his mom, Arlene, as a proud memorial
————
73
to her son. This is my reminder of lives that ended, and a task that
does not end.
I will not forget this wound to our country or those who infl icted
it. I will not yield; I will not rest; I will not relent in waging this
struggle for freedom and security for the American people.
The course of this confl ict is not known, yet its outcome is
certain. Freedom and fear, justice and cruelty, have always been at
war, and we know that God is not neutral between them.
Fellow citizens, we’ll meet violence with patient justice —
assured of the rightness of our cause, and confident of the victories
to come. In all that lies before us, may God grant us wisdom, and
may He watch over the United States of America.

Friends, I could write over a thousand pages on the many wonderful men and women who have come and gone and who in some cases are still living.  I regret that maybe some of the best speeches ever written are sprung out of great despair or great amounts of lives lost or known pain for thousands or even millions.

6.  US President Jimmy Carter.

But, I do wonder why some US Presidents take Office and then afterwards, they simply jump into lethargy.  But not all of them.  GOD BLESS President Jimmy Carter.  Now, here is a man who walked in Peace, sought Peace, fought for Peace, and then after leaving the Office, President Carter has bent over backwards helping all that he can help.  Simpy an amazing and blessed man.  A man this Nation will sorely miss when he leaves.  This one President has impressed the hell out of me.  He is the real deal and someone that I wished other Presidents would learn from.

And Lordy, US President John F. Kennedy did have a wonderful way with words and how he spoke them.  He is another man that others need to study for how he did it all.

But there were other times that men not so much known for their words came forth and spoke some that are still used today.  And some of them are words from Actor John Wayne.  Comedian Lucille Ball.  Comedian Red Skelton.  NHRA Driver John Force.  Baseball Legions Micky Mantle, and Jackie Robinson who said-

“There’s not an American in this country free until every one of us is free.” –Jackie Robinson

And now, https://www.inc.com/mandy-antoniacci/19-of-the-most-motivating-quotes-from-major-league-baseball-legends.html

Some men and women did not know at the time that their words would forever be placed into the minds of others and it comes from every facet of life.  Everyone just like you and me and all of us.  You don’t have to be super special to think that.  All you have to do is be SOMEBODY.  And lots of just simple somebodies write amazing stories for all of us to read or hear.

From every lifestyle, every Job Place, every Household, every Faction known to man, and so many other places where great minds are nurtured for that moment in time where their words or how they say them come out and captivated all of us and maybe even opened our eyes to some else’s plights in life or just something very new to you or me. But again,

And that’s enough as I am now tired and I must lay down a bit.  But I will return if the Lord so chooses that for me.

And if you so strive, in your own life, you too may one day have an amazing speech, quote, or manuscript that the entire World will enjoy seeing or hearing.

But I want to leave you with one more thought.  In my lifetime, I have seen some of the best, and I do mean the absolute best writing I have ever seen by some Reporters and some Journalists.  And I am talking about those in magazines too.  I still remember seeing some the the best in Playboy Magazine by amazing authors.  Right now, I think Esquire Magazine puts in some amazing Articles by amazing writers.  Also, Texas Monthly does too.

But even Coaches and other Athletes do sometimes make tremendous speeches or quotes too.
