Another classic is Antony's speech concerning Caesar in William Shakespeare's 'Julius Caesar.' (Note that not just the words themselves, but intonation and stress are also important in interpreting meaning.)

Then there is Martin L. King's immortalized speech "I Have a Dream," in which repetition is used for effect.
