Adlai Stevenson

America is much more than a geographical fact. It is a political and moral fact - the first community in which men set out in principle to institutionalize freedom, responsible government, and human equality.
Nothing so dates a man as to decry the younger generation.
Freedom is not an ideal, it is not even a protection, if it means nothing more than freedom to stagnate, to live without dreams, to have no greater aim than a second car and another television set.
Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.
