It is time to stop quivering in our boots in pointless fear of the future and just roll up our sleeves and build it.

Bill Moyers' Eulogy for Lady Bird Johnson

From Bill Moyers' eulogy for Lady Bird Johnson:
[A] man called me back at the White House from the pay phone at a local train depot. He was choking back the tears. "As long as I live," he said, in a voice breaking with emotion, "I will thank God I was here today, so that I can tell my children the difference courage makes."
Moyers' eulogy is here; more stories here.
