Bill Clinton Motivational Quotes:

  • “People are more impressed by the power of our example rather than the example of our power...”
  • “We all do better when we work together. Our differences do matter, but our common humanity matters more.”
  • “I learned a lot from the stories my uncle, aunts and grandparents told me: that no one is perfect, but most people are good; that people can’t be judged by their worst or weakest moments; that harsh judgments can make hypocrites of us all; that a lot of life is just showing up and hanging on; that laughter is often the best, and sometimes the only response to pain."
  • “When our memories outweigh our dreams, it is then that we become old.”
  • “Perhaps most important, I learned that everyone has a story – of dreams and nightmares, hope and heartache, love and loss, courage and fear, sacrifice and selfishness. All my life I’ve been interested in other people’s stories. I wanted to know them, understand them, feel them. When I grew up into politics, I always felt the main point of my work was to people a chance to have better stories. - Page 15, Paragraph 5, ‘My Life’ by Bill Clinton. –Hard cover version-”
  • “The real differences around the world today are not between Jews and Arabs; Protestants and Catholics; Muslims, Croats, and Serbs. The real differences are between those who embrace peace and those who would destroy it. Between those who look to the future and those who cling to the past. Between those who open their arms and those who are determined to clench their fists.”
  • “If you live long enough, you'll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you'll be a better person. It's how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit.”
  • “All America loses when any person is denied or forced out of a job because of sexual orientation. Being gay, the last time I thought about it, seemed to have nothing to do with the ability to read a balance book, fix a broken bone, or change a spark plug.”
  • “Being President is like being the groundskeeper in a cemetery: there are a lot of people under you, but none of them are listening.”
  • “If you want to live like a Republican, vote like a Democrat.”
  • “We cannot build our own future without helping others to build theirs.”
  • “A man is more than the sum of all the things he can do.”
  • “People around the world have always been more impressed by the power of our example than by the example of our power.”
  • “We live in a completely interdependent world, which simply means we cannot escape each other. How we respond to AIDS depends, in part, on whether we understand this interdependence. It is not someone else's problem. This is everybody's problem.”

Bill Clinton

  • “Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of, but stigma and bias shame us all.”
  • “You can put wings on a pig, but that doesn't make it an eagle.”
  • “If you live long enough, you'll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you'll be a better person.”
  • “They should be impressed by the power of our example, not the example of our power.”
  • “When our memories outweigh our dreams, we have grown old.”
  • “If one candidate is appealing to your fears, and the other one's appealing to your hopes, you’d better vote for the person who wants you to think and hope!”
  • “Each bloodletting hastens the next, and as the value of human life is degraded and violence becomes tolerated, the unimaginable becomes more conceivable.”
  • “When I was in England I experimented with marijuana a time or two, and I didn't like it. I didn't inhale.”
  • “Our democracy must be not only the envy of the world but the engine of our own renewal. There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured by what is right with America.”
  • “Sometimes when people are under stress, they hate to think, and it's the time when they most need to think.”
  • “He didn't say a word or do an action that did not have a purpose”
  • “That depends on what your definition of 'is' is.”
  • “There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured by what is right with America.”
