Argument & Debate
Engrave this Quote When people generally are aware of a problem, it can be said to have entered the public consciousness. When people get on their hind legs and holler, the problem has not only entered the public consciousness -- it has also become a part of the public conscience. At that point, things in our democracy begin to hum.

City Life, Cities
Engrave this Quote We are in danger of making our cities places where business goes on but where life, in its real sense, is lost.

Congress
Engrave this Quote I have seen in the Halls of Congress more idealism, more humanness, more compassion, more profiles of courage than in any other institution that I have ever known.

Democracy
Engrave this Quote It is not enough to merely defend democracy. To defend it may be to lose it; to extend it is to strengthen it. Democracy is not property; it is an idea.

Example
Engrave this Quote This, then, is the test we must set for ourselves; not to march alone but to march in such a way that others will wish to join us.

Heresy
Engrave this Quote The difference between heresy and prophecy is often one of sequence. Heresy often turns out to have been prophecy -- when properly aged.

Identity
Engrave this Quote In real life, unlike in Shakespeare, the sweetness of the rose depends upon the name it bears. Things are not only what they are. They are, in very important respects, what they seem to be.

Ideology
Engrave this Quote People in places many of us never heard of, whose names we can't pronounce or even spell, are speaking up for themselves. They speak in languages we once classified as exotic but whose mastery is now essential for our diplomats and businessmen. But what they say is very much the same the world over. They want a decent standard of living. They want human dignity and a voice in their own futures. They want their children to grow up strong and healthy and free.

Individuality
Engrave this Quote The great challenge which faces us is to assure that, in our society of big-ness, we do not strangle the voice of creativity, that the rules of the game do not come to overshadow its purpose, that the grand orchestration of society leaves ample room for the man who marches to the music of another drummer.

Law
Engrave this Quote We should have learnt by now that laws and court decisions can only point the way. They can establish criteria of right and wrong. And they can provide a basis for rooting out the evils of bigotry and racism. But they cannot wipe away centuries of oppression and injustice -- however much we might desire it.

Leadership
Engrave this Quote Leadership in today's world requires far more than a large stock of gunboats and a hard fist at the conference table.

Liberalism
Engrave this Quote Liberalism, above all, means emancipation -- emancipation from one's fears, his inadequacies, from prejudice, from discrimination... from poverty.

Liberty
Engrave this Quote The right to be heard does not autmatically include the right to be taken seriously.

Multiculturalism
Engrave this Quote Fortunately, the time has long passed when people liked to regard the United States as some kind of melting pot, taking men and women from every part of the world and converting them into standardized, homogenized Americans. We are, I think, much more mature and wise today. Just as we welcome a world of diversity, so we glory in an America of diversity -- an America all the richer for the many different and distinctive strands of which it is woven.

Nation, Nationality, Nationalism
Engrave this Quote The heroes of the world community are not those who withdraw when difficulties ensue, not those who can envision neither the prospect of success nor the consequence of failure -- but those who stand the heat of battle, the fight for world peace through the United Nations.

Peace
Engrave this Quote The pursuit of peace resembles the building of a great cathedral. It is the work of a generation. In concept it requires a master-architect; in execution, the labors of many.
