I find this quote to be very inspirational, but it also makes me sad, because after I read it the first thing that sprang to mind is, "Wow, you can tell he's from another era." People are so divided and it's not only sad, but destructive. So much potential for greatness, so much hatred and division.
Maybe - hopefully sometime soon - people will dare to be great and go forward together. We can only hope. The other path leads nowhere good.
