The last time i said this was only recently. Having been a speechwriter, I can say it is only once in a blue moon when one gets to observe a remarkable speech. I am always on the lookout for new ways of picturing something. Perhaps these are the times when great speeches must be made at all cost.
The text of Meryl Streep's speech at the Golden Globes after accepting the Cecille B. DeMille Award, according to a transcript provided by Hollywood Foreign Press Association:

The Old Man and the Sea...Gregorio Fuentes lived to age 104 and was Ernest Hemingway’s 1st mate from 1938, replacing Carlos Gutierrez who had fished in the Gulf Stream for 40 years. Though Hemingway based the old man on "no one in particular," it is very likely his first mates were the composite character. Fuentes died in 2002 and never read the Nobel Prize winning book for 50 years until his death. He was based at Cojimar (Cuba).
