“Progress doesn’t move in a straight line.”
Ben Rhodes, The World as It Is: A Memoir of the Obama White House

“Nations arise telling a story that binds people together in sacrifice and cooperation, allowing for remarkable feats. But those same stories have so often been used to oppress and dehumanize those who are different. The wars of the modern age teach us this truth. Hiroshima teaches this truth. Technological progress without an equivalent progress in human institutions can doom us. The scientific revolution that led to the splitting of an atom requires a moral revolution as well.”
Ben Rhodes, The World As It Is: Inside the Obama White House

“People always say never again,” he said. “But they never want to do anything.”
Ben Rhodes, The World as It Is: A Memoir of the Obama White House
