Speech at Worthington, Minnesota

Answers founded on clear and dispassionate thought must be matched to action rooted in conviction and a passionate desire to reshape the world. It is not enough to understand, or to see clearly. The future will be shaped in the arena of human activity, by those willing to commit their minds and bodies to the test. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “God gives to each of us the choice between truth and repose. Take which you please. You cannot have both.”
