Manal al-Sharif: A Saudi woman who dared to drive
The topic of her speech is really actual and the speech itself is extremely emotional and strong. I sincerely support this woman in her struggle against the society, her struggle for her rights. I don't understand why so many people from her country call her traitor. I guess it is because of the differences betweet cultures of our countries. I liked the idea that the society is free when women are free. It is evident that she loves her country, she loves its citizens, because she wants to improve their lives, to give them more freedom. A real patriot is not a person who talks a lot about his love to the country, but the one, who proves his love by his deeds. The matter here is not in just driving a car, but in driving your life. Such simple thing as driving a car is not against the religion, it has nothing to do with morality.It's just part of a routine.And if it is forbidden, so how about more serious human rights?I guess that her country is still ruled by customs that were created when no cars were invented. Such country should move on, because our world is not standing still.I am impressed by the strength of this woman. If all people were so conscious, we would have a perfect world.

Brené Brown: The power of vulnerability
The speaker is amazingly and disarmingly sincere, that really attracts. She said lots of things that made me think. The first thing was: what makes us vulnerable, makes us beautiful. That's the truth, because people make mistakes, but the more mistakes we make,the more determined we become and go ahead for new mistakes. Speaker's other words prove it: we live in a vulnerable world. There is no doubt, that vulnerability is an unavoidable part of human life. Even latin proverb says: errare humanum est. And the last thing, which I liked most of all is that people want to be worthy, to be necessary. This words turned my attention most of all,because that is just what I was thinking. Our desire to be necessary, longing for someone who would need us is our life. Person, who doesn't want to be loved, is NOT alive. Our vulnerability makes us feel that we're alive,that we still exist.

Lisa Bu: How books can open your mind
This talk is really inspiring. When I was listening to it, I felt pretty much the same. Books play an important role in my life. I think they help us to avoid the reality if it is unpleasant for us, they help to survive despite all the hardships. They are just great, every book is like a new world,where you live,fight,love and die when the book is over. Evidently the speaker found the same in books-a place where you can fulfill all your dreams, that were supressed in real life.An interesting idea is to compare books. In such way you can compare different ways of life, different viewpoints concerning the same topic.In our university we had an introduction to the comparative literature.That was really useful.
