The greatest speech ever made: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WibmcsEGLKo&feature=youtube_gdata_player -- This is from Charlie Chaplin and he nailed it out of the fraakin' park!
If you haven't seen this clip from the classic film "Network", I think you'll really enjoy it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dib2-HBsF08&feature=youtube_gdata_player . Actually, even if you have seen it, you'll love watching it again.
This is completely unrelated but awesome too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLFQYbjYsso&feature=youtube_gdata_player . Would it be good if participants in the occupy movement "got their yawp on"? That level of confidence. We need it.
Here's something else completely random that you might enjoy: Wouldn't be great if when we occupy an important gathering sometime, someone stands up and gives a speech with this level of passion and guts! --- watch this. So fun: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p0E0WZG_SAI&feature=youtube_gdata_player
There are times when all the world's asleep. . . "The Logical Song" by Supertramp (blast from the past http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcX1qA1Etc8&feature=youtube_gdata_player -- odd version but the lyrics hit home.
These Lennon lyrics are also fantastic if you listen close on a blue sky day staring out the window: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moCf_pghM-U&feature=youtube_gdata_player
And finally, to complete the entirely random nature of this Sunday post, I'll offer my favorite quote in the hopes that it reminds you that all things are possible:
"Until one is committed, there is a hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth - the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans; that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manor of unforseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now."
