Lyndon B. Johnson on the Great Society

“The Great Society is a place where every child can find knowledge to enrich his mind and to enlarge his talents…It is a place where men are more concerned with the quality of their goals than the quantity of their goods.”

Lyndon B. Johnson in a speech at the University of Michigan (1964)
