“Change doesn’t happen from the top down. It happens from the bottom up.” – Barack Obama
"In our nation, the people are sovereign, not the government. It is the people, not the media or the financial system or mega-corporations or the two political parties, who have the power to create change." – Howard Dean
"I believe that we have a righteous wind at our backs, and that as we stand on the crossroads of history, we can make the right choices and meet the challenges that face us." – Barack Obama
History says, Don't hope
on this side of the grave.
But then, once in a lifetime
the longed for tidal wave
of justice can rise up,
and hope and history rhyme.
– Seamus Heaney, "The Cure at Troy"
