Any Sun Yat-Sen speeches?


I'm doing a speech project for my class (Gotta make a presentation and analyze a speech) and I really want to do a Sun Yat-sen one but Google only gave me one for a speech in a movie, which I can't do. xD I asked my dad and he told me he was a good speaker because his nickname was "Sun dai pao" (Sun cannon) for his way of speaking (Cantonese way of saying your speak like a machine gun).

Please help! I need a really good speech he did!

Also look in the Time magazine archives. I am developing an overview of how Time saw China during the 20th century and I have gotten extensive information from them.: Breaking News, Analysis, Politics, Blogs, News Photos, Video, Tech Reviews - TIME.com

very sad to say it, but sun cannon is not good nick name, and the name is not for his speech ability too.

correctly to say, the name is for his windbaggary.

but he is really good at speech, indeed.

dapao(cannon) means a person who only like to say boast but don't do reality of things in cantonese, chinese people thought that sun was too idealized and not practical, that is why they called the nick name to him, it is not good nick name.

another source is that sun had ever went to meet yuan shi kai in about 1912, famous politician yuan shikai asked him about railway problem of china, sun answered that he can build 200,000 km for china, then yuan shikai agreed and give a position to him for building railways, but sun had never builded any railway , then yuan named sun as da pao (cannon), means that sun can't do real things but only know to say boast.
