About 'The spoken word'

The power of words move and inspire us. From “O, it is excellent to have a giant’s strength, but it is tyrannous to use it like a giant.” (William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure, circa 1603) to “We simply cannot sweep injustice aside. Even if our own conscience allowed us to, I am sure, that in due course, the world and the people of our region would not.” (Paul Keating, Redfern Address, 1992).

Take a moment to view these four short pieces, absorb their messages, and be moved by their honesty.
