The greatest achievements were at first and for a time dreams. The oak sleeps in the acorn.
— James Allen

Is the acorn better than the oak which is its fullness and completion?
Ralph Waldo Emerson acorns quote

The acorn becomes an oak by means of automatic growth; no commitment is necessary. The kitten similarly becomes a cat on the basis of instinct. Nature and being are identical in creatures like them. But a man or woman becomes fully human only by his or her choices and his or her commitment to them. People attain worth and dignity by the multitude of decisions they make from day by day. These decisions require courage.
— Rollo May

The real truth is that the Obama administration is professional at bullying, as we have witnessed with ACORN at work during the presidential campaign. It seems to me they are sending down their bullies to create fist fights among average American citizens who don't want a government-run health care plan forced upon them.
— Jon Voight

I've been fighting with Acorn, alongside Acorn, on issues you care about, my entire career.
— Barack Obama
