In honor of John Lennon’s birthday today and the extreme honor of our president Barack Obama receiving the Nobel Peace Prize this morning, I offer you two quotes from two amazing and inspiring people. The world would not be the same without them. Their impact has made a difference, and a difference for the better.

“If someone thinks that love and peace is a cliché that must have been left behind in the Sixties, that’s his problem. Love and peace are eternal.” ~ John Lennon

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” ~Barack Obama
