The "I Have a Dream" speech by Martin Luther King Jr. is one of the most influential speeches ever.

The different rhetorical devices, allusions to historic documents, and metaphors seemed to have brought about the emotions that King was trying to arouse in his listeners. This helped him influence his listeners towards wanting equality for all and changing what was happening in the present so they didn't repeat things in the past The very title of his speech was probably taken from his use of anaphora which was present throughout his speech.

Even though Education can be very tedious and at moments seem extremely difficult we just need to get through it, after all education is not something meant to be easy because then it is not education and we are not learning anything, the goal is to learn, comprehend as much information and apply that to the world we live in. I believe that Education is what makes the world go round; it is the heart and soul of everything we do. Education holds so much power and once you have it you are unstoppable. It may seem like too much I know for a fact I found myself not wanting to have anything to do with it at all but I know how important it is and the doors it can open for so many of us. By the time we put in all our work and effort into our education before we know it so many of us can be
Without a doubt, repetition and emotional imagery (such as personification) are definitely quite powerful devices.. especially because they help Dr. King illustrate his themes of unity / collaboration and immediate action against desegregation, in his famous “I Have a Dream” speech. To begin, let's examine what King's "I Have a Dream" speech was all about. Although King's speech focused on several different topics and had multiple themes, two themes paramount to his speech were the necessity of unity & community and immediate action against segregation. To illustrate his idea that immediate action must be taken against segregation, Dr. King frequently applies repetition and emotional imagery / description. Dr. King initially begins the speech by describing the state of the negro citizen to be in an "exile in his own land" and to be "languished in the corner's of American society."

The path to Stoicism begins by developing indifference to pleasure and pain, through meditation.

Extreme greediness can develop to become a habit and eventually become part of a person’s character, and with that it can make people do ruthless things that are unfavorable or make people do many great things if their hearts are kind.

The case for being a pacifist “There are many causes I would die for. There is not a single cause I would kill for.” ― Mahatma Gandhi “First, it must be emphasized that nonviolent resistance is not a method for cowards; it does resist. If one uses this method because he is afraid or merely because he lacks the instruments of violence, he is not truly nonviolent…. A second basic fact that characterizes nonviolence is that it does not seek to defeat or humiliate the opponent, but to win his friendship and understanding….The end is redemption and reconciliation. The aftermath of nonviolence is the creation of the beloved community, while the aftermath of violence is tragic bitterness.” Martin Luther King, Jr Nowadays, pacifism is not popular.
