Barack Obama Quotes


Barack Obama quotes

President Barack Obama quotes are very popular today.

People everywhere are listening very closely to what he says.

President Obama has brought hope and a new vision to a lot of people, not just here in the U.S. but around the world.

What I find interesting is that not only are Presidnt Obama's quotes upbeat and inspiring; they spell things out in a language we can all understand.

For example, in the following Obama quotes look at the words the President uses to get his message across----simple—short—to the point.

*****************************************************************

We have a stake in one another … what binds us together is

greater than what drives us apart,

and ... if enough people believe in the truth of thatproposition and act on it,

then we might not solve every problem, but we can get something meaningful done

for the people with whom we share this Earth.

*****************************************************************


I always believe that ultimately, if people are paying

attention, then we get good government and good leadership.

And when we get lazy, as a democracy and civically start taking

shortcuts, then it results in bad government and politics.

*****************************************************************

When people are judged by merit, not connections,

then the best and brightest can lead the country,

people will work hard, and the entire economy will grow –

everyone will benefit and more resources will be available

for all,

not just select groups.

*****************************************************************

I have seen, the desperation and disorder of the powerless:

how it twists the lives of children on the streets of Jakarta or

Nairobi

in much the same way as it does the lives of children on

Chicago ’s South Side.

*****************************************************************

We have to acknowledge the progress we made,

but understand that we still have a long way to go.

That things are better, but still not good enough.

*****************************************************************



In these next two quotes the President talks on the subject of hope.

*****************************************************************

Hope – Hope in the face of difficulty. Hope in the face of uncertainty.

The audacity of hope! In the end, that is God’s greatest gift to us,

the bedrock of this nation.

A belief in things not seen. A belief that there are better days ahead.

****************************************************************



Hope is what led a band of colonists to rise up against an empire;

what led the greatest of generations to free a continent and heal a nation;

what led young women and young men to sit at lunch counters and brave fire hoses and

march through Selma and Montgomery for freedom's cause.

Hope is what led me here today--with a father from Kenya, a mother from Kansas;

and a story that could only happen in the United States of America.

Hope is the bedrock of this nation; the belief that our destiny will not be written for us,

but by us;

by all those men and women who are not content to settle for the world as it is;

who have courage to remake the world as it should be.

*****************************************************************


Read--fill your mind with useful & empowering food--can't buy

your own book--no problem--visit your local library--

-But--take some action & get some good books to read- YOU decide-

If you keep doing -what you have always done--you will keep

getting the same results---take action now


**********One more of our Barack Obama quotes*************

*****************************************************************

In reaffirming the greatness of our nation we understand that greatness is never a given.

It must be earned. Our journey has never been one of short-cuts or settling for less.

It has not been the path for the faint-hearted, for those that prefer leisure over work, or seek only

the pleasures of riches and fame.

Rather, it has been the risk-takers, the doers, the makers of things -- some celebrated,

but more often men and women obscure in their labor –

who have carried us up the long rugged path towards prosperityand freedom.
