“We’re here to celebrate
the power of words : they
help us to appreciate beauty
and also to understand pain;
to inspire us to action, and to
spur us on when we start to lose hope;
to lift us up
out of our daily existence – even
if it’s just for a few moments –
and return us with hearts that are
a little bigger and fuller than
they were before..

“It is the painter, the author,
the musician, and the historian
whose work inspires us to action,
drives us to contemplation,
stirs joy in our hearts, and
calls us to consider our world anew.”

Barack Obama, 2009
