Commenting on the 1968 Presidential campaign:

“I cannot wish that the campaign did not happen. Through it I crossed the barrier into the world of my children and all of the young people to whom this world really belongs.  I see the world now as they see it.  I feel a sense of surprise that it is so easy to lay aside what once were rocklike basic assumptions, as I look at injustice in the fierce light of their outrage.  Bud I do not wish to have so many oldeer people in a headlong rush to join the young.  What I woulod like to bring with me is a sense of the past, its continuity in the present, and a sense of identity stemming from the past which enables each one of us to withstand the assault of change.”
