Movie Wisdom: Judgment at Nuremberg

A country isn't a rock. And it isn't an extension of one's self. 'It's what it stands for, when standing for something is the most difficult!' Before the people of the world - let it now be noted in our decision here that this is what 'we' stand for: 'justice, truth... and the value of a single human being!'

Spenser Tracy as Judge Dan Haywood

Judgment at Nuremberg, 1961

Barack Obama on Critical Thought

You mention the Navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets. We have these things called aircraft carriers and planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines. It's not a game of 'Battleship' where we're counting ships, it's 'What are our capabilities?'

Bruce Springsteen on American Reslience

We’re still living through very hard times but justice, equality and real freedom are not always a tide rushing in. They are more often a slow march, inch by inch, day after long day.

Mike Greenberg on Perspective

This is how negative I am - the glass isn't half-full, the glass isn't half-empty - it's a dribble glass and it's cracked.
