I cannot discover that anyone knows enough to say definitely what is and what is not possible.
What's right about America is that although we have a mess of problems, we have great capacity - intellect and resources - to do some thing about them.
Most people spend more time and energy going around problems than in trying to solve them.
Any colour - so long as it's black.
There is no man living that can not do more than he thinks he can.
I do not believe a man can ever leave his business. He ought to think of it by day and dream of it by night.
