A few quotes from Barack Obama as he declares victory in the US Election:

“to put their hands on the arc of history and bend it once more toward the hope of a better day”

“Sasha and Malia, I love you both so much, and you have earned the new puppy that’s coming with us to the White House”

“And while she’s no longer with us, I know my grandmother is watching, along with the family that made me who I am. I miss them tonight, and know that my debt to them is beyond measure”

“[this campaign] grew strength from the young people who rejected the myth of their generation’s apathy”

“This victory alone is not the change we seek – it is only the chance for us to make that change. And that cannot happen if we go back to the way things were. It cannot happen without you”

“So let us summon a new spirit of […] service and responsibility where each of us resolves to pitch in and work harder and look after not only ourselves, but each other”

“And to those Americans whose support I have yet to earn – I may not have won your vote, but I hear your voices, I need your help, and I will be your president too”
