Patrick Henry storyboard

Storyboard Text

  • " should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country."
  • "it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope"
  • "I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past."
  • In the quote Patrick is saying that if he doesn't share his opinions now he will regret it and see himself as a traitor. He is appealing to ethos by stating that he believes that he can impact the outcome of the war to come.
  • "We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne"
  • Patrick is saying that it's normal to have hope but there is a point where you have to face the facts and deal with the problem at hand yourself, I think that this is appealing to pathos because it's kinda like he's shining the light on their false illusions of hope.
  • "There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free, we must fight!"
  • He is saying that they have sat back for almost ten years and let the British ministry rule only to be ignored and fooled. This quote refers to logos because Patrick uses very important examples and information to support his claim.
  • "I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"
  • Patrick is stating examples of what they have done to be heard only to be ignored again and again. I think this is appealing to logos because he is using real life events to support what he is trying to say.
  • Patrick is persuading his listeners to take the chance and fight for what is theirs. He is appealing to pathos because he is using emotions to get his point across.
  • He is saying that he'd rather die if not win. He is appealing to pathos because he is demonstrating how much he cares about this. Like he'd rather die than lose.
