These quotations from FDR could be equally applied today.

“This generation of Americans has a rendezvous with destiny.”

“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much;
It is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.”

“No country, however rich, can afford the waste of its human resources.
Demoralization caused by vast unemployment is our greatest extravagance. Morally, it is the greatest menace to our social order.”

“In these days of difficulty, we Americans everywhere must and shall choose a path of social justice…
The path of faith, the path of hope, and the path of love toward our fellow man.”

“Among American citizens, there should be no forgotten men, and no forgotten races.”

(Franklin D. Roosevelt)
