Artistic rather than sporty.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Speech Artistic rather than sporty Our house would rather be arty than hearty. The terminology offers quite a broad range of ideas and in order to be able to debate, we shall fist of all define the motion. By consulting several dictionaries, we came up with a summary of those artistic activities and what they have in common. Art, literature, Music and Drama are the main subfields of arts as they all contain the idea of creativity. Hearty however is a highly complex definition and as by definition of the motion, hearty cannot be anything relating significant creativity but still needs to be an activity, as we need to be passionate about it, we shall conclude that the main part of hearty activities is sport as many of us would agree that our chief areas of constructive activities are arts and sport where as fun things such as going to the sixth form bar and get totally drunk. Hence our house would, if it had a certain time period to be spent on these two alternatives, choose to do as much Art, literature, Drama, Music as possible and less though not none of the time on sports which represents hearty activities. ...read more.

Middle

But I think there are many (including the members of Monty) who do not know any great sportsmen borne before the nineteenth century. However, you will be given a more comparison of literature and sport by my colleague. Now it can be argued that sport has developed just recently and that there are many famous sportsmen in the twentieth century such as Muhammed Ali and Henry Olonga who definitely did something against discrimination or Dictatorship.. However, the people themselves contributed something and sport was rather a way of getting fame and hence people's attention, whereas Music for example distinguishes itself from sport through its essence which has to be combined with individual creators. So clearly, by chasing a ball for ninety minutes as it is being done in a football game, we do practically nothing for the future whereas if we write music, we do. Hence we can say that, yes, there were great, unbelievably self-confident and courageous sports men, but sport itself did not contribute to their achievements, the only thing is hast done is increased one's individual pride through competition, which of course can also be accomplished by other measures. ...read more.

Conclusion

Not only creation itself, but also passive appreciation of arts such as listening to music, watching films or dramatic pieces develop our mind further and does show us what life is about and also does hardly diminish with time passing by. So what have we learned, what can we say? Well, which is more important to you, to us or to all of mankind? Poems, Drama, Music, Books and Art or sports? What would you choose? All of us concentrating on sport and less on learning an instrument or how do produce a film, for example? Or rather first of all create something that lasts and play cricket afterwards? What would you say, what day is it? A day when all of us think of only today and little of tomorrow? A day we don't see paintings and songs of the past but play football in order to have fun just today? A day when you do not watch any entertaining films or listen to music but instead of learning and enjoying just play tennis and only enjoy? Tell me what day it is and vote for what you think is the more important aspect of life! ...read more.
