What is the most inspiring speech you have heard?


This speech was made by Charlie Chaplin in his movie 'The Great Dictator' and it has always inspired me since I first saw it. So my question to you all is this: What speech have you heard or a talk you have seen on TED that inspires you to be a good person or gives you a brighter outlook on life?

PS: A link to the speech/talk would be appreciated if possible.


Closing Statement from Gaurav Gujral

Thanks everyone for the great links, its been a blast looking at all these speeches and getting the chance to share some of the talks that inspire me has been great.

So once again, thanks :)

        Sorry I don't have a URL for you but I just realized that URL may be a new exception
        to the English rule of "an" for a, e, i, o, u. Or maybe not. Let's see, I don't have an URL....
        Hmmm. What do you think?
