There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven't yet met.
William Butler Yeats
If my future were determined just by my performance on a standardized test, I wouldn't be here. I guarantee you that.
Everyone here has the sense that right now is one of those moments when we are influencing the future.

And we have done more in the two and a half years that I've been in here than the previous 43 Presidents to uphold that principle, whether it's ending 'don't ask, don't tell,' making sure that gay and lesbian partners can visit each other in hospitals, making sure that federal benefits can be provided to same-sex couples.
Perhaps the greatest utopia would be if we could all realize that no utopia is possible; no place to run, no place to hide, just take care of business here and now.
