What’s one of your favorite quotes?   


“And if we cannot end now our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity. For, in the final analysis, our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s future. And we are all mortal.”

—John F. Kennedy


and one more for the road…


“My brother need not be idealized, or enlarged in death beyond what he was in life, but to be remembered simply as a good and decent man, who saw wrong and tried to right it, saw suffering and tried to heal it, saw war and tried to stop it. Some men see things as they are and say ‘Why?’ I dream things that never were and say, ‘Why not?”

— Edward Kennedy (also citing George Bernard Shaw)
