Cory Booker: "You are the result of a grand conspiracy of love."

Cory Booker is the Mayor of Newark, New Jersey, and the subject of a documentary called Brick City.

  • Every day you drink from the wells of freedom and liberty that you did not dig.
  • You are the result of a grand conspiracy of love. People stormed Normandy for you. People bled on foreign lands for you.
  • The world will try to lull you into mediocrity.
  • What you see in the world is less about the facts of what is there--and more about who you are and how you see the world.
  • Who you are speaks so loudly, I can't hear one thing you say.
  • Before you say anything, let me see how you live and how you give.
  • In every circumstance we have two options: Accept the situation as it is, or change it.
  • "Why did Tiger and Eeyore have their heads in the toilet? Because they were looking for Pooh."
  • In this world we don't get everything we pay for, but we must pay for everything we get.
