Wisdom quotes from Michelle’s speech at the 2008 DNC:
The American Dream Endures
Work hard for what you want in life.
Your word is your bond.
Do what you say you’re going to do.
Treat people with dignity and respect even if you don’t know them, and even if you don’t agree with them.
The only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work hard for them.
Listen to hopes instead of fears.
Stop doubting and start dreaming!
Build the world as it should be.
America should be a place where you can make it if you try.
The world as it is and the world as it should be…all too often we accept the distance between the two and we settle for the world as it is even when it doesn’t reflect our values and aspirations. We know what the world should look like. We know what fairness and justice and opportunity look like. Believe in ourselves, find the strength in ourselves to strive for the world as it should be!
See for yourself!
