Words That Change Our Lives

Words. Such a small thing but the quote is true. No matter how old we are, words have been said that have been etched into our memories to never be forgotten. Here are some of mine.

You are never given a dream without also being given the power to make it true.
- Richard Bach

The path we have chosen for the present is full of hazards, as all paths are . . . The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender, or submission.
- John F. Kennedy, speech announcing blockade of Cuba to stop delivery of Soviet missles. Oct. 22, 1962.

Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose.
Nothin' ain't nothin' but it's free.
- Kris Kristofferson and Fred Foster, song. "Me and Bobby McGee." 1969

The greatest accomplishment is not in never failing, but in rising again after you fall.
- Vince Lombardi, in Jerry Kramer, Instant Replay. 1968.

. . . I have a dream . . .
- Martin Luther King, Jr., speech, "I Have A Dream," Lincoln Memorial, Washington D.C., August 28, 1963.

If you have any quotes that have made a difference in your life, I would love to hear of them and share them with others on this page.
