I want to keep my study of Mandarin fun and engaging. One way I thought might be helpful is if there was a resource that held quality translations of famous American speeches or writing. By studying and practicing the Chinese version of famous passages, I think I could learn the language at a more lyrical level, while still working from an (english) base I can easily comprehend. This would be as opposed to studying the speeches e.g. of Mao Zedong, where I would need to learn both the English and the Chinese version.
For example, if there were a resource that took the Top 100 Speeches from American Rhetoric, and translated them into Mandarin (ideally with commentary!) that would be exactly what I'm looking for.
