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.

So once again, thanks :)

      Oct 11 2011: I watched this video, Eric. TED deletes comments that violate their terms of use, which includes blatant self promotion or spam, and sometimes this is a fine and difficult line to determine. This video is posted by ivoteforronpaul, and is not one speech, but a speech by JFK with Ron Paul woven throughout. It appears to be JFK at first, and Ron Paul shows up unexpectedly after one is into it a bit. I'm sure it seemed like spam, which I think you can understand as we embark upon a presidential election year.. This is surely one of those fine line moments for TED administrators. That said, it is certainly likely you are deeply inspired by this video, and by Ron Paul. I'd love to know what others think about this, and the fine line that exists for TED in this case.

      Personally, I don't know if threatening TED is all that cool...they are never ill intentioned.
