I need some help with my intro paragraph for a compare/contrast essay. I have the first and last sentences, just need some help with the filler sentences. Ideas? (

"The similarities and differences between the “Gettysburg Address” and “Pericles' Funeral Oration” have long been debated and discussed amongst both scholars and ordinary people alike.[insert filler sentences] After much contemplation, the multitude of similarities and differences between Lincoln's "Gettysburg Address" and Thucydides "Pericles' Funeral Oration", is apparent in both their content and the rhetorical devices used."
