About The Book
The mantras, witticisms, and philosophies of Ted Kennedy, collected by the editor of the New York Times bestselling The Kennedy Wit.
“The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives and the dream shall never die.” —Democratic National Convention, 1980
“Like my brothers before me, I pick up the fallen standard. Sustained by the memory of our priceless years together, I shall try to carry forward that special commitment to justice, to excellence, and to courage that distinguished their lives.” —Speech given before the start of the 1968 Democratic Convention
A collection of quotations and philosophies from Ted Kennedy, grouped thematically in categories (“Words of Inspiration,” “On the Kennedy Family and its Legacy,” “Personal Reflections,” “On Religion and Public life,” “Lighter Moments,” etc.). Each section will include a brief introduction by the editor to set off the group of quotes, which range from charming little one-liners to Kennedy's letter to Pope Benedict that President Obama hand-delivered to the Vatican in July 2009.
