Two great people, two great quotes

"I don't think the dream of [Walt] Whitman has ever been fulfilled. ... When Whitman started out, he had such great faith in humankind. His mind must have been destroyed when the War between the States fell at his front door." -- Bob Dylan, 05.14.09 Rolling Stone.

"Now, in some ways, I think it's important to understand that some of that [Wall Street, banking sector and other] wealth was illusory in the first place." -- President Barack Obama, 05.03.09, New York Times Magazine. (Great, insightful interview.)
