Michelle Obama Topics
I just want to pause for a moment on the word 'invent' because the phrase isn't 'succeed in the future,' it's not 'plan for the future' or 'do the best you can in the future.' It's 'invent the future.' And with those three words comes a simple message: a call to chart your own course and live life on your own terms... In the end, it's up to each of us to define ourselves. It's up to each of us to invent our own future with the choices we make and the actions we take.
Graduation Speech quotes
Women are more than capable of making our own choices about our bodies and our health care.
I know from experience that if I truly want to leave a better world for my daughters, and all of our sons and daughters; and if we want to give all our children a foundation for their dreams and opportunities worthy of their promise; if we want to give them that sense of limitless possibility that belief that here in America, there is always something better out there if youre willing to work for it, then we must work like never before.
We must once again come together and stand together for the man we can trust to keep moving this great country forward my husband, our president, President Barack Obama.
We learned about honesty and integrity, that the truth matters, that you dont take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules and success doesnt count unless you earn it fair and square. Problems where no amount of data or numbers will get you to the right answer.
Ive gotten to see up close and personal what being president really looks like. At the end of the day, when it comes time to make that decision, as president, all you have to guide you are your values, and your vision, and the life experiences that make you who you are.
If so many brave men and women could wear our countrys uniform and sacrifice their lives for our most fundamental rights...then surely we can do our part as citizens of this great democracy to exercise those rights...surely, we can get to the polls and make our voices heard on Election Day.
Believe it or not, when we were first married, our combined monthly student loan bills were actually higher than our mortgage. We were so young, so in love, and so in debt.
When youve worked hard, and done well, and walked through that doorway of opportunity, you do not slam it shut behind you. You reach back, and you give other folks the same chances that helped you succeed.
Barack and I were both raised by families who didnt have much in the way of money or material possessions but who had given us something far more valuable, their unconditional love, their unflinching sacrifice, and the chance to go places they had never imagined for themselves.
If farmers and blacksmiths could win independence from an empire...if immigrants could leave behind everything they knew for a better life on our shores...if women could be dragged to jail for seeking the vote...if a generation could defeat a depression, and define greatness for all time...if a young preacher could lift us to the mountaintop with his righteous dream...and if proud Americans can be who they are and boldly stand at the altar with who they love...then surely, surely we can give everyone in this country a fair chance at that great American Dream.
I have seen firsthand that being president doesnt change who you are,it reveals who you are.
We learned about gratitude and humility, that so many people had a hand in our success, from the teachers who inspired us to the janitors who kept our school clean...and we were taught to value everyones contribution and treat everyone with respect.
Our life before moving to Washington was filled with simple joys...Saturdays at soccer games, Sundays at grandmas house...and a date night for Barack and me was either dinner or a movie, because as an exhausted mom, I couldnt stay awake for both.
Success is not about the money you make, but the difference you make in somebody's life.
One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals. And so when I hear about negative and false attacks, I really don't invest any energy in them, because I know who I am.
Life Lesson quotes
Women in particular need to keep an eye on their physical and mental health, because if we're scurrying to and from appointments and errands, we don't have a lot of time to take care of ourselves. We need to do a better job of putting ourselves higher on our own 'to do' list.
We can make a commitment to promote vegetables and fruits and whole grains on every part of every menu. We can make portion sizes smaller and emphasize quality over quantity. And we can help create a culture - imagine this - where our kids ask for healthy options instead of resisting them.
We all need to start making some changes to how our families eat. Now, everyone loves a good Sunday dinner. Me included. And there's nothing wrong with that. The problem is when we eat Sunday dinner Monday through Saturday.
Together, we can help make sure that every family that walks into a restaurant can make an easy, healthy choice.
