We must never yield to this temptation. Our American values are not luxuries, but necessities - not the salt in our bread, but the bread itself.
Jimmy Carter (1924 - ), in his farewell address  
For all that has been, thanks. For all that will be, yes.
Dag Hammarskjold (1905 - 1961)  
The guy who takes a chance, who walks the line between the known and unknown, who is unafraid of failure, will succeed.
Gordon Parks
