The American Dream Quote of the Day


John Hume

Nobel Prize for Peace

When you look at the founding fathers of the United States, what was their philosophy? It's often forgotten, but I was very aware and it's written, summarized on the American cent, E pluribus unum, written large on the grave of Abraham Lincoln, "From many we are one." The essence of our unity is respect for diversity. And of course, when you consider the founding fathers of the United States were driven out of other countries by poverty, by famine, by conflict, by all of those things, and they decided that those things weren't going to happen in their new land. And that was a philosophy, and of course, when you consider that, the essence of unity is respect for diversity, that's a philosophy of peace for the world.
