“Teaching was the hardest work I had ever done, and it remains the hardest work I have done to date.”

“Let me tell you, sisters, seeing dried egg on a plate in the morning is a lot dirtier than anything I've had to deal with in politics.”

"I'm really glad that your young people missed the Depression I'm really glad that your young people missed the Depression and missed the big war.

They brought us together and they gave us a sense of national purpose.”

And... at the 1998 Democratic National Convention as keynote speaker, about George Herbert Walker Bush:  "Poor George, he can't help it.  He was born with a silver foot in his mouth."

“I have very strong feelings about how you lead your life. You always look ahead, you never look back.”
