“For all those whose cares have been our concern, the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die.”

  — Edward M. “Ted” Kennedy, 12 August 1980, Democratic National Convention.

“There is a new wave of change all around us, and if we set our compass true, we will reach our destination — not merely victory for our Party, but renewal for our nation … The work begins anew. The hope rises again. And the dream lives on.”

  — Edward M. “Ted” Kennedy, 25 August 2008, Democratic National Convention.
