Farewell Barack Obama

As we know, on the 20th of January Barack Obama officially left the position from being the president and, in his place, Donald Trump came. For his farewell, let’s look at the memorable things he said for the country and the world.

1. “Nothing in life that’s worth anything is easy.”
2. 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.”
3. “We have an obligation and a responsibility to be investing in our students and our schools. We must make sure that people who have the grades, the desire and the will, but not the money, can still get the best education possible.”
4. “The shift to a cleaner energy economy won’t happen overnight, and it will require tough choices along the way. But the debate is settled. Climate change is a fact.”
5. “The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something.”

6. “I could not be prouder of the transformation that has taken place in our society just in the last decade and I’ve said before, I think we made some useful contributions to it, but the primary heroes in this stage of our growth as a democracy and a society are all the individual activists and sons and daughters and couples who courageously said, ‘This is who I am and I’m proud of it,’ and that opened people’s minds and hearts, and eventually laws caught up.”
7. “Yes We Can!”
8. “I’m inspired by the people I meet in my travels—hearing their stories, seeing the hardships they overcome, their fundamental optimism and decency. I’m inspired by the love people have for their children. And I’m inspired by my own children, how full they make my heart. They make me want to work to make the world a little bit better. And they make me want to be a better man.”
9. “If you’re walking down the right path and you’re willing to keep walking, eventually you’ll make progress.”
10. “One voice can change a room, and if one voice can change a room, then it can change a city, and if it can change a city, it can change a state, and if it change a state, it can change a nation, and if it can change a nation, it can change the world. Your voice can change the world.”Obama3.jpg
11. “It’s important to make sure that we’re talking with each other in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds.”
12. “Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it’s not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won’t. It’s whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere.”
13. “More than a building that houses books and data, the library has always been a window to a larger world—a place where we’ve always come to discover big ideas and profound concepts that help move the American story forward. Libraries remind us that truth isn’t about who yells the loudest, but who has the right information. Because even as we’re the most religious of people, America’s innovative genius has always been preserved because we also have a deep faith in facts. And so the moment we persuade a child, any child, to cross that threshold into a library, we’ve changed their lives forever, and for the better. This is an enormous force for good.”
14. “You can’t let your failures define you. You have to let your failures teach you.”
15. “Hope is not blind optimism. It’s not ignoring the enormity of the task ahead or the roadblocks that stand in our path. It’s not sitting on the sidelines or shirking from a fight. Hope is that thing inside us that insists, despite all evidence to the contrary, that something better awaits us if we have the courage to reach for it, and to work for it, and to fight for it. Hope is the belief that destiny will not be written for us, but by us, by the men and women who are not content to settle for the world as it is, [but] who have the courage to remake the world as it should be.”1-014E7r4Cs2_4IvXY7xvYlQ.jpeg

These are just a few of the many quotes Barack Obama has said and told people of the world. We wish him the best. Farewell Barack Obama. You will be missed.
