„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

„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.

„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.

„And she would often tell Barack, "So long as you kids do well, Bar, that's all that really matters."“

—  Michelle Obama

2010s, Democratic National Convention speech (2012)
Contexto: Barack's grandmother started out as a secretary at a community bank, and she moved quickly up the ranks, but like so many women, she hit a glass ceiling. And for years, men no more qualified than she was – men she had actually trained – were promoted up the ladder ahead of her, earning more and more money while Barack's family continued to scrape by. But day after day, she kept on waking up at dawn to catch the bus... arriving at work before anyone else... giving her best without complaint or regret. And she would often tell Barack, "So long as you kids do well, Bar, that's all that really matters."

„He never stopped smiling and laughing — even while struggling to button his shirt, even while using two canes to get himself across the room to give my mom a kiss. He just woke up a little earlier and worked a little harder.“

—  Michelle Obama

2000s, Democratic National Convention speech (2008)
Contexto: My dad was our rock. Although he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in his early 30s, he was our provider, our champion, our hero. As he got sicker, it got harder for him to walk, it took him longer to get dressed in the morning. But if he was in pain, he never let on. He never stopped smiling and laughing — even while struggling to button his shirt, even while using two canes to get himself across the room to give my mom a kiss. He just woke up a little earlier and worked a little harder.

„I am so tired of fear. And I don’t want my girls to live in a country, in a world, based on fear.“

—  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.

„We have this window of opportunity; we have a chance to make something real happen. Something possible happen, to live beyond our fear — think about that, and help us.“

—  Michelle Obama

2000s, To Live Beyond Our Fear (2007)
Contexto: We have this window of opportunity; we have a chance to make something real happen. Something possible happen, to live beyond our fear — think about that, and help us. Help lift us up, help us fight this fight to change — transform — this country in a fundamental way.
This chance won’t come around again.

„Like so many American families, our families weren't asking for much.“

—  Michelle Obama

2010s, Democratic National Convention speech (2012)
Contexto: Like so many American families, our families weren't asking for much. They didn't begrudge anyone else's success or care that others had much more than they did, in fact, they admired it. They simply believed in that fundamental American promise that, even if you don't start out with much, if you work hard and do what you're supposed to do, then you should be able to build a decent life for yourself and an even better life for your kids and grandkids. That's how they raised us; that's what we learned from their example.
