Great Words on This Day of Days

With this heartening victory that seems to be turning a potential new page in our common global history, these words from others - who also shared in that history - were sent to me today:

So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself."
FDR Inaugural Address, March 1933

No business which depends for existence on paying less than living wages to its workers has any right to continue in this country.
FDR's Statement on the National Industrial Recovery Act, June 16, 1933

Happiness lies not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.
FDR's Inaugural Address, March 4, 1933

The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.
FDR's second Inaugural Address, January 20, 1937

There is a mysterious cycle in human events. To some generations much is given. Of other generations much is expected. This generation of Americans has a rendezvous with destiny.
FDR's speech to the Democratic National Convention, January 27, 1936

I am an optimist. It does not seem too much use being anything else.
