Speeches have their origins in antiquity....Asman's progress developed, the need for speech-making increased. The more gifted speakers became the lawmakers and leaders. By the time civilization flowered in Athens, oratory became the fine art of government and culture. And so it has continued to our own stormy times.

—Lewis Copeland From the Introduction to The World's Great Speeches
