David Brooks, "A Speech to the Delegates," in today's New York Times:

One path before us leads to the past, and the extinction of the human race. The other path leads to the future, when we will all be dead. We must choose wisely.

Woody Allen, "My Speech to the Graduates," published in Side Effects (Random House, 1980):

More than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other, to total extinction. Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.
