Inspirational Quotes from Barack Obama

Barack Obama: Change
Barack Obama: Change

"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or
some other time.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
We are the change that we seek."

"In my heart I know you didn’t come here just for me,
you came here because you believe in what this country can be.
In the face of war, you believe there can be peace.
In the face of despair, you believe there can be hope.
In the face of a politics that’s shut you out,
that’s told you to settle, that’s divided us for too long,
you believe we can be one people, reaching for what’s possible,
building that more perfect union."

"Whenever I write a letter to a family who has lost a loved one in Iraq, or read an email from a constituent who has dropped out of college because her student aid has been cut, I’m reminded that the actions of those in power have enormous consequences–a price that they themselves almost never have to pay."

"We need to steer clear of this poverty of ambition, where people want to drive fancy cars and wear nice clothes and live in nice apartments but don’t want to work hard to accomplish these things. Everyone should try to realize their full potential."

"Because nothing worthwhile in this country has ever happened unless somebody, somewhere stood up when it was hard;
stood up when they were told – no you can’t,
and said yes we can."
