Default Favorite Speeches

Here you can list your top favorite speeches from movies, books, or even real life. I dont have much time on my hands right now so I'll just post two of my favorite movie speeches...



(okay technically the last ones not a speech but it is badass nonetheless!)

And so feel free to post fav quotes or moments as well

before i post my favorite speech how do you post videos in the thread like that?

note: if you see me giving tactical advice: just assume i have a internet tab open to 1d4 chan and I'm summarizing off of that.

I like the Speech Robin William's char gives at the end of the movie "Man of the Year." I have no idea how to link a video like you did, but I'm sure you can find it somewhere.

Also in the movie "Swing Vote" the end speech by Kevin Costner's char.

I like the hero speech's and all that jazz, but there is to much of a certain finality to them. I'm more about the speech's that don't so much inspire me to shine brighter then that sun, as I strive to make my last moments mean more then the rest of my life has. I enjoy being defined in less violent, and glorious ways.

Wonder what this does

Default A Few Good Men

From the film "A Few Good Men"

Col. Jessep
(Jack Nicholson): "You want answers?"
Kaffee (Tom Cruise): I think I'm entitled.
Col. Jessep: *You want answers?*
Kaffee: *I want the truth!*
Col. Jessep: *You can't handle the truth!*

Col. Jessep: Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.... "

I just copied the URL and pasted it but for some reason none of my videos worked. At first I thought you couldn't have utube vids on anymore but Viscount Vash's plays fine.

First one is from Troy:

You men are warriors! To lead you has been my honor! The boatman waits for us! I say, we make him wait a little longer!

Marines die, that's what we're here for. But the Marine Corps lives forever. And that means YOU live forever.

Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem.

Maximus: "Fratres!"
"Three weeks from now, I will be harvesting my crops. Imagine where you will be, and it will be so. Hold the line! Stay with me! If you find yourself alone, riding in the green fields with the sun on your face, do not be troubled. For you are in Elysium, and you're already dead!
Brothers, what we do in life... echoes in eternity."
