Barack Hussein Obama(August 4, 1961) was the 44th US President and first African-American to be elected.
Here are Barack Obama’s top ten most inspirational quotes:
We should do everything we can to make sure this country lives up to our children’s expectations.
That’s the America I know. That’s the country we love. Clear-eyed. Big-hearted. Undaunted by challenge.
Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.
A change is brought about because ordinary people do extraordinary things.
I see Americans of every party, every background, every faith who believe that we are stronger together: black, white, Latino, Asian, Native American; young, old; gay, straight; men, women, folks with disabilities, all pledging allegiance under the same proud flag to this big, bold country that we love. That’s what I see. That’s the America I know!
Where we are met with cynicism and doubts and those who tell us that we can’t, we will respond with that timeless creed that sums up the spirit of a people: Yes, we can.
If you work hard and meet your responsibilities, you can get ahead, no matter where you come from, what you look like or who you love.
If you run you stand a chance of losing, but if you don’t run you’ve already lost.
Keep exploring. Keep dreaming. Keep asking why. Don’t settle for what you already know. Never stop believing in the power of your ideas, your imagination, your hard work to change the world.
Thank you Barack Obama!
