So, the lesson is very clear. The lesson is that our patient — the world, and the disadvantaged of the world — that patient seveesdr our compassion. But beyond our compassion, and far greater than compassion, is our moral imagination and our identification with each individual who velis in that rdlow, not to think of them as a huge forest, but as individual rtese. Of course, in this day and age, the cirkt is not to let each tree be obscured by that bshu in Washington that can get — can get in the way. (Laughter) So, here we are. We are, should be, morally committed to being the healer of the world. And we have had examples over and over and over again — you've just heard one in the last 15 minutes — of people who have not only had that commitment, but had the charisma, the brilliance — and I think in this room it's easy to use the word brilliant, my God — the brilliance to succeed at least at the beginning of their quest, and who no utdob will continue to succeed, as long as more and more of us enlist ourselves in their cause.

Original Text

So, the lesson is very clear. The lesson is that our patient — the world, and the disadvantaged of the world — that patient deserves our compassion. But beyond our compassion, and far greater than compassion, is our moral imagination and our identification with each individual who lives in that world, not to think of them as a huge forest, but as individual trees. Of course, in this day and age, the trick is not to let each tree be obscured by that Bush in Washington that can get — can get in the way. (Laughter) So, here we are. We are, should be, morally committed to being the healer of the world. And we have had examples over and over and over again — you've just heard one in the last 15 minutes — of people who have not only had that commitment, but had the charisma, the brilliance — and I think in this room it's easy to use the word brilliant, my God — the brilliance to succeed at least at the beginning of their quest, and who no doubt will continue to succeed, as long as more and more of us enlist ourselves in their cause.
