J.K. Rowling’s Commencement Address at Harvard University

President Faust, members of the Harvard Corporation and the Board of Overseers, members of the faculty, proud parents, and, above all, graduates. The first thing I would like to say is ‘thank you.’ Not only has Harvard given me an extraordinary honour, but the weeks of fear and nausea I have endured at the thought […]

Commencement Address at Maharishi University by Jim Carrey

Thank you. What are you sitting down for! I was going to milk that for a while. You guys can stretch that out at post, right? To make that longer in the edit. Thank you, Bevan, thank you all! I brought one of my paintings to show you today. I hope you guys are going to be able see it […]

Tulane University Commencement Address by Ellen DeGeneres

Oh boy, thank you so much, thank you so much. Thank you, President Cowan, Mrs. President Cowen; distinguished guests, undistinguished guests, you know who you are, honored faculty and creepy Spanish teacher. And thank you to all the graduating Class of 2009, I realize most of you are hungover and have splitting headaches and haven’t slept since […]

Abolition Speech by William Wilberforce

Never take the freedom that you have for granted. The slave trade is a black mark on Western history, and it can come as somewhat of a shock that it wasn’t until the early 19th century that slavery was abolished in Britain.

I also congratulate the three comrades on the courage they have shown in pressing their amendments to a division, even though they knew that there was an overwhelming majority in favour of the resolution, and I congratulate the thirteen friends who voted against the […]

I am Ready to Die by Nelson Mandela

I am the First Accused. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Arts and practised as an attorney in Johannesburg for a number of years in partnership with Oliver Tambo.

A Speech, Tonniez Group Holdings 11th Anniversary

Your Excellency, Distinguished guests, Dignitaries present, Ladies and Gentlemen in all your respective capacities, Good evening, We are living in an age of choice.

GRADUATION SPEECH by TONNY RUTAKIRWA

Family and Friends, It has been a journey. There is no doubt about it. Just like everything else I’ve done in my life, it’s been a long way from a straight line. For me, university took a back seat for a long time. I was focused on my business dreams. I had a conglomerate to […]
