From 2009 to 2017, Obama was the 44th president of the United States of America. As a Columbia University grad, Harvard law grad, a professor at the University of Chicago Law School, an influential attorney and a state and U.S. senator, his achievements are nothing short of amazing.
Get a spark of inspiration with these 10 quotes from Obama.
Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
Nothing in life that is worth anything is easy.
We did not come to fear the future. We came here to shape it.
Progress will come in fits and starts. It’s not always a straight line. It’s not always smooth path.
The cynics may be the loudest voices, but I promise you, they will accomplish the least.
One voice can change a room.
Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it’s not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won’t. it’s whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere.
