thank you for your bravery and perseverance. despite your marfan syndrome, depression due to the death of your sons, and your “homely” appearance, you kept a strong face during the nation’s most unsteady time in its history. i don’t think America would be quite as United if it weren’t for you, and you deserve all the praise in the world. thanks for your consistent virtue throughout your presidency and shuttin up your opponents with your speeches. you da best :)
"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power."
“Don’t be afraid to be a fool. Remember, you cannot be both young and wise. Young people who pretend to be wise to the ways of the world are mostly just cynics. Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the farthest thing from it. Because cynics don’t learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say no. But saying yes begins things. Saying yes is how things grow. Saying yes leads to knowledge. “Yes” is for young people. So for as long as you have the strength to, say yes.”—Stephen Colbert
