„Temos de corrigir as nossas almas. Nossas almas estão despedaçadas nesta nação. Nós perdemos nosso rumo. E isso começa com a inspiração. Começa com a liderança.“

—  Michelle Obama

We need to fix our souls. Our souls are broken in this nation. We have lost our way. And it begins with inspiration. It begins with leadership.
Em Campanha, Los Angeles, California http://blog.washingtonpost.com/the-trail/2008/02/03/on_super_bowl_sunday_a_rally_b_1.html (3 de fevereiro de 2008)
Variante: Nós precisamos curar nossas almas. Nossas almas estão feridas nessa nação. Nós perdemos nosso caminho. E começa com inspiração. Começa com liderança.

„O que temos aprendido ao longo deste ano é que a esperança é fazer um retorno. Ele está fazendo um retorno… Pela primeira vez na minha vida adulta, estou realmente orgulhosa do meu país. E não apenas porque Barack fez bem, mas porque eu acho que as pessoas estão com fome de mudança. E eu era desesperada para ver nosso país avançar nesta direção e não me sinto sozinha em minhas frustações e desilusões. Eu vi pessoas passando fome para se unir em torno de um objetivo comum e isso me fez Orgulhosa.“

—  Michelle Obama

What we've learned over this year is that hope is making a comeback. It is making a comeback. And let me tell you something — for the first time in my adult lifetime, I'm really proud of my country. And not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change. And I have been desperate to see our country moving in that direction and just not feeling so alone in my frustration and disappointment. I've seen people who are hungry to be unified around some basic common issues, and it's made me proud.

„Tudo o que tenho a fazer é olhar para o rosto das minhas filhas, e eu percebo quanto trabalho precisamos fazer.“

—  Michelle Obama

All I have to do is look into the faces of my children, and I realize how much work we need to do.
Discurso de campanha, citado em "First Lady in Waiting" by Leslie Bennetts in Vanity Fair Web exclusive (27 de dezembro de 2007) http://www.vanityfair.com/politics/features/2007/12/michelle_obama200712

„Generation after generation, this country has become more equal, more inclusive, more fair, more free.“

—  Michelle Obama

2010s, Commencement speech for Oberlin College Prep graduates (2015)
Contexto: ... Generation after generation, this country has become more equal, more inclusive, more fair, more free. My life and so many of your lives are a testament of that truth. But that has only happened because folks like all of you left their comfort zones and made their voices heard.

„With every word we utter, with every action we take, we know our kids are watching us. We as parents are their most important role models.“

—  Michelle Obama

2010s, 2016 Democratic National Convention (2016)
Contexto: With every word we utter, with every action we take, we know our kids are watching us. We as parents are their most important role models. And let me tell you, Barack and I take that same approach to our jobs as president and first lady because we know that our words and actions matter, not just to our girls, but the children across this country, kids who tell us I saw you on TV, I wrote a report on you for school.

„I am desperate for change — now — not in 8 years or 12 years, but right now. We don’t have time to wait.“

—  Michelle Obama

Campaign speech, quoted in "First Lady in Waiting" by Leslie Bennetts in Vanity Fair Web exclusive (27 December 2007) http://www.vanityfair.com/politics/features/2007/12/michelle_obama200712
2000s
Contexto: I am desperate for change — now — not in 8 years or 12 years, but right now. We don’t have time to wait. We need big change — not just the shifting of power among insiders. We need to change the game, because the game is broken. When I think about the country I want to give my children, it’s not the world we have now. All I have to do is look into the faces of my children, and I realize how much work we need to do.

„Be focused. Be determined. Be hopeful. Be empowered. Empower yourselves with a good education, then get out there and use that education to build a country worthy of your boundless promise. Lead by example with hope, never fear.“

—  Michelle Obama

2010s, Farewell Speech (2017)
Contexto: I want our young people to know that they matter, that they belong. So don't be afraid—you hear me, young people? Don't be afraid. Be focused. Be determined. Be hopeful. Be empowered. Empower yourselves with a good education, then get out there and use that education to build a country worthy of your boundless promise. Lead by example with hope, never fear. And know that I will be with you, rooting for you and working to support you for the rest of my life.

„Barack and I talked long and hard about this decision.“

—  Michelle Obama

2000s, To Live Beyond Our Fear (2007)
Contexto: Barack and I talked long and hard about this decision. You know, this wasn’t an easy decision for us, because we’ve got two beautiful little girls, and we have a wonderful life, and everything was going fine. And there was nothing that would have been more disruptive than a decision to run for President of the United States.
And as more people talk to us about it, I mean the question came up again and again. What people were most concerned about: they were afraid. It was fear. Fear, again, raising its ugly head, in one of the most important decisions we would make. Fear; fear of everything. Fear that we might lose. Fear that he might get hurt. Fear that this would be ugly. Fear that it would hurt our family. Fear.
But you know, the reason why I said yes was because I was tired of being afraid. I am tired of living in a country where every decision that we’ve made over the last ten years wasn’t for something, but it was because people told us we had to fear something. We had to fear people who looked different from us. Fear people who believed in things that were different from us. Fear of one another right here in our own backyards.
I am so tired of fear. And I don’t want my girls to live in a country, in a world, based on fear.

„It is our fundamental belief in the power of hope that has allowed us to rise above the voices of doubt and division, of anger and fear that we have faced in our own lives and in the life of this country. Our hope that if we work hard enough and believe in ourselves, then we can be whatever we dream, regardless of the limitations that others may place on us. The hope that when people see us for who we truly are, maybe, just maybe they, too, will be inspired to rise to their best possible selves.“

—  Michelle Obama

2010s, Farewell Speech (2017)
Contexto: When you encounter obstacles — because I guarantee you, you will, and many of you already have — when you are struggling and you start thinking about giving up, I want you to remember something that my husband and I have talked about since we first started this journey nearly a decade ago, something that has carried us through every moment in this White House and every moment of our lives, and that is the power of hope — the belief that something better is always possible if you're willing to work for it and fight for it.
It is our fundamental belief in the power of hope that has allowed us to rise above the voices of doubt and division, of anger and fear that we have faced in our own lives and in the life of this country. Our hope that if we work hard enough and believe in ourselves, then we can be whatever we dream, regardless of the limitations that others may place on us. The hope that when people see us for who we truly are, maybe, just maybe they, too, will be inspired to rise to their best possible selves.

„And even as a kid, I knew there were plenty of days when he was in pain…I knew there were plenty of mornings when it was a struggle for him to simply get out of bed.“

—  Michelle Obama

2010s, Democratic National Convention speech (2012)
Contexto: My father was a pump operator at the city water plant, and he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when my brother and I were young. And even as a kid, I knew there were plenty of days when he was in pain... I knew there were plenty of mornings when it was a struggle for him to simply get out of bed.
