 :: 1911-1978, American Democratic Politician, Vice President

Quote Bullet

People in places many of us never heard of, whose names we can't pronounce or even spell, are speaking up for themselves. They speak in languages we once classified as ''exotic'' but whose mastery is now essential for our diplomats and businessmen. But what they say is very much the same the world over. They want a decent standard of living. They want human dignity and a voice in their own futures. They want their children to grow up strong and healthy and free.
~ Hubert H. Humphrey - [Third World]

~ Hubert H. Humphrey - [Law and Lawyers]
