Throughout the course of history, there have been great speeches that have changed the trajectory of our past. They have inspired in the darkest hour, motivated the unmotivated to fight injustice, refined the character of men, honored the dead and have shown a glimmer of hope to the hopeless. That is the power of the spoken word. But it is not just the speech but the speaker that can turn a good speech into a truly phenomenal one. This collection of speeches gives an insight into the minds of great leaders and personalities, who were also remarkable orators like Abraham Lincoln, Napoleon, Alexander The Great, Gandhi, Albert Einstein and many more.
