“Men may fail, but this nation won’t fail. I have faith in America; you and I must have faith in America.
“I plead with you not to preach pessimism. Preach that this is the greatest country in all the world. This is the favored land. This is the land of our forefathers. It is the nation that will stand despite whatever trials and crises it may yet have to pass through.
“We should not be concerned about finding what is wrong with America, but we should be finding what is right about America and should be speaking optimistically and enthusiastically about America.”
--Harold B. Lee
