"Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around ... when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right. That all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen. Say Amen." --Irreverend Joseph Lowery giving what was supposed to be the benediction at the inauguration

"I feel like I am better because of his being elected. And I think that the country is going to be better. I feel like it is a beautiful thing, and we all start to see ourselves differently, the possibility." --Oprah Winfrey
