I like Honor's statement of principle when she explained to Reginald Houseman what the Honor of the Queen demanded in chapter 18 of that book.

I had to revisit that speech FLY, and I agree on it as a nomination. Same as the first time I read it, I imagine the emotions Ariel captured from her bond with the Soul of Steel as she delivered it.

I also liked the speech Beth gave to her opponents when they wouldn't support the war effort when she told them "You'll rue the day." Brrr!

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

All of Honor's speeches were powerful. I liked the speech Hamish gave, was it Janacek, about not being able to believe that he could be any stupider if he hadn't seen it for himself.

Janacek kept rising to the occasion. LOL

Not a "speech" to the general public, but I would nominate Sorrow Singer's "Declaration of War"

Barregos's announcement in UH is fairly noteworthy as well.

I had an idea for what Elizabeth could have said to High Ridge after Thunderbolt:

You've spent four years preparing this shit sandwich and NOW you want to share? Oh, no. It's all yours. Bon appetit, asshole!
