Our American story for generations
Our American story, for generations, is of a people who seek to move forward. A people who look at a mountain and worry not about the tough climb ahead, but dream about the view from the summit.
– Bill Owens
- We as children went up the mountain to find feed for livestock, like goats, cows and horses, and because in the winter time we would light the fire in the house, we would climb the mountain to collect firewood as well. Because of that, I suppose I became used to climbing mountains. – Tamae Watanabe
- I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to there and it will move. – Matthew
- If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to your mountain, MOVE! and it WILL move… and NOTHING will be impossible for YOU! – Matthew

- It’s not good enough for us to have generations of kids that… look forward to a better version of a cell phone with a video in it. They need to look forward to exploration. – Burt Rutan
- No matter how steep the mountain – the Lord is going to climb it with you. – Helen Steiner Rice
- When we make college more affordable, we make the American dream more achievable. – Bill Clinton
- We engineered activity out of our lives in the name of convenience. We created foods that put fried, fatty, sweet, and salty ahead of fresh, natural, and healthy. We quickly sacrifice sleep to work longer hours in pursuit of the American Dream. Even when we do these things with good intentions, they have life-threatening consequences. –
- Our favorite teams bring people together, keep family members close, bond people from different generations. Some of the happiest moments of my life involve something that happened with one of my teams. Some of the best relationships I ever had were with Boston athletes that I never even met. – Bill Simmons
