Justice Quotes

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

William Jennings Bryan

Obama is neither a socialist, nor a mere political accountant. He has some modest ideals, and may yet be an excellent president. But what is needed to revive liberal idealism is a set of new ideas on how to promote justice, equality and freedom in the world.

We are still waiting for a new vision, which will lead to progress, but this time, we hope, without tyranny.

Ian Buruma
