I need a famous speech

I need to memorize a 7-10 minute famous speech for debate club.  I need a speech.  I don't want a big black speech because i'm half white and half asian and that would just look weird.  i have a nice powerful voice, but i just need a speech.

What speech did you use?

Google for speeches by Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde, and Winston Churchill. About half the worthwhile things that have ever been said in English have been attributed to at least one of them at one one time or another, and they all date from an era when long speeches were the norm.

Haha, right now we are reading "A picture of Dorean Gray"

and luckily our english teacher told us Oscar wilde was gay before westarted reading it :P  But so far the book is pretty interestingand has a pretty philosophical look to it

I'd give the speech from "Billy Madison", where he compares "The Little Puppy Who Lost His Way" to the industrial revolution.
Mr. Madison, the Industrial Revolution changed the face of the modern novel forever. Discuss, citing specific examples. <br />[<i class="fine">Billy clears his throat several times</i>] <br /> Uh... Okay. The Industrial Revolution to me is just like a story I know called "The Puppy Who Lost His Way." The world was changing, and the puppy was getting... bigger. <br />[<i class="fine">Later</i>] <br /> So, you see, the puppy was like industry. In that, they were both lost in the woods. And nobody, especially the little boy - "society" - knew where to find 'em. Except that the puppy was a dog. But the industry, my friends, that was a revolution. <br />[<i class="fine">Long pause</i>] <br /> Knibb High football rules! <br />[<i class="fine">the crowd erupts into cheers</i>] <br /> Mr. Madison, what you have just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul. <br /> Okay, a simple "wrong" would've done just fine.

I should definiteley do that, except i might get like tossed out society, i mean the little boy xD That sounds soooo wrong
I don't think your so called, "Little boy" would care, as long as your talking about how the "puppy" grew into a "dog" over the years in the woods, or "The city"

Now I want to watch Billy Madison just for that.
"I honestly think everyone in this room just got stupider from hearing your speech"

Roosevelt's speech after the incidents of Pearl Harbor.

Youre half white and half asian, so its all a matter of what you think of the events.

Does that make sense...at all?
