We want the spirit of America to be efficient; we want American character to be efficient; we want American character to display itself in what I may, perhaps, be allowed to call spiritual efficiency--clear, disinterested thinking and fearless action along the right lines of thought. America is not anything if it consists of each of us. It is something only if it consists of all of us; and it can consist of all of us only as our spirits are banded together in a common enterprise. That common enterprise is the enterprise of liberty and justice and right. And, therefore, I, for my part, have a great enthusiasm for rendering American spiritually efficient; and that conception lies at the basis of what seems very far removed from it, namely, the plans that have been proposed for the military efficiency of this nation.
      - Thomas Woodrow Wilson,
        in a speech at Pittsburgh

-----to every man his chance
  --to every man, regardless of his birth, his shining, golden opportunity
    --to every man the right to live, to work, to be himself, and to become whatever his manhood and his vision can combine to make him
      --this, seeker, is the promise of America.
      - Thomas Wolfe (Thomas Clayton Wolfe)

Home from the lonely cities, time's wreck, and the naked woe,
  Home through the clean great waters where freeman's pennants blow,
    Home to the land men dream of, where all the nations go.
      - George Edward Woodberry, Homeward Bound
