Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.

Sticking your head in the sand might make you feel safer, but it's not going to protect you from the coming storm.

I’m sorry, man. I must have confused you with my favourite R&B singer.

What makes you a man isn’t the ability to conceive a child; it’s having the courage to raise one.

"... all people yearn for certain things: ... government that is transparent and doesn't steal from the people; the freedom to live as you choose. Those are not just American ideas, they are human rights, and that is why we will support them everywhere.

Today's achievement is a testament to the greatness of our country and the determination of the American people. The cause of securing our country is not complete, but tonight we are once again reminded that America can do whatever we set our mind to. That is the story of our history.

From the earliest days of our founding, America has been the story of ordinary people who dare to dream. That’s how we win the future.
Starting this year, no American will be forbidden from serving the country they love because of who they love. And with that change, I call on all of our college campuses to open their doors to our military recruiters and the ROTC. It is time to leave behind the divisive battles of the past. It is time to move forward as one nation.
We will move forward together, or not at all – for the challenges we face are bigger than party, and bigger than politics.
Amid all the noise and passions and rancor of our public debate, Tucson reminded us that no matter who we are or where we come from, each of us is a part of something greater – something more consequential than party or political preference.
What comes of this moment will be determined not by whether we can sit together tonight, but whether we can work together tomorrow.
So, no, I will not give up on trying to change the tone of our politics. I know it's an election year. And after last week, it's clear that campaign fever has come even earlier than usual. But we still need to govern.

No one is exempt from the call to find common ground.

If we aren't willing to pay a price for our values, then we should ask ourselves whether we truly believe in them at all.
