Famous quotes by hubert h. humphrey:

    We can rejoice that the time has arrived when millions of Negro Americans can step out of the shadows, and walk forthrightly into the bright sunshine of human rights.
    Hubert H. Humphrey (1911–1978)

    Hubert H. Humphrey (1911–1978)

    As we begin to comprehend that the earth itself is a kind of manned spaceship hurtling through the infinity of space—it will seem increasingly absurd that we have not better organized the life of the human family.
    Hubert H. Humphrey (1911–1978)

    In real life, unlike in Shakespeare, the sweetness of the rose depends upon the name it bears. Things are not only what they are. They are, in very important respects, what they seem to be.
    Hubert H. Humphrey (1911–1978)

    When people generally are aware of a problem, it can be said to have entered the public consciousness. When people get on their hind legs and holler, the problem has not only entered the public consciousness—it has also become a part of the public conscience. At that point, things in our democracy begin to hum.
    Hubert H. Humphrey (1911–1978)
