Zitate Cory Booker

„Ich möchte versuchen, meine eigenen Werte zu leben, so bewusst und absichtlich wie möglich. Für mich bedeutet Vegetarier zu sein, dass ich an nicht Praktiken teilnehmen kann, die nicht meinen Überzeugungen entsprechen.“

—  Cory Booker

„We make a grave mistake when we assume this spirit of connectedness is automatic or inevitable. It is not a birthright. A united country is an enduring struggle. It takes collective work and individual sacrifice. It is not enough to call on others or wait for a leader to emerge who will exalt our national values. I believe this is the question we face, as citizens of this nation: what will we do to affirm this most critical American virtue?“
