“We have surmounted all the perils and endured all the agonies of the past. We shall provide against and thus prevail over the dangers and problems of the future, withhold no sacrifice, grudge no toil, seek no sordid gain, fear no foe. All will be well. We have, I believe, within us the life-strength and guiding light by which the tormented world around us may find the harbour of safety, after a storm-beaten voyage.”
—Winston Churchill, Chateau Laurier, Ottawa, 9 November 1954

Let there be justice for all.
Let there be peace for all.
Let there be work, bread, water and salt for all.
Let each know that for each the body, the mind and the soul have been freed to fulfill themselves.
Never, never and never again shall it be that this beautiful land will again experience the oppression of one by another
Nelson Mandela, Inauguration as President of South Africa, 10th May 1994

I don’t want a lot for Christmas, there is just one thing I need:
What is a man now to do with his mind
When it’s working overtime
