Sometimes, showing support is not enough. As insignifant as computer wallpapers might be, they serve many important purposes. Those who walk by and see your computer will know where your heart is. Those close to you may inquire, giving you the opportunity to express your convictions. Most importantly, they can be reminders that keep our souls true to purpose.
For those who want change that we can believe in, here are wallpapers that say more than any article, any speech, or any debate.
This is an excerpt from an interview Obama gave in Rolling Stones Magazine. It captures Obama’s message for change in a very powerful way.
“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” – Obama
“Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it’s only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential.” - Obama
“I don’t oppose all wars. What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war.” – Obama
“I know my country has not perfected itself. At times, we’ve struggled to keep the promise of liberty and equality for all of our people. We’ve made our share of mistakes, and there are times when our actions around the world have not lived up to our best intentions.“ - Obama
“If the people cannot trust their government to do the job for which it exists – to protect them and to promote their common welfare – all else is lost.” – Obama
“If you’re walking down the right path and you’re willing to keep walking, eventually you’ll make progress.” – Obama
“In the end, that’s what this election is about. Do we participate in a politics of cynicism or a politics of hope?“ – Obama
“Issues are never simple. One thing I’m proud of is that very rarely will you hear me simplify the issues.” – Obama
“It took a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get to where we are today, but we have just begun. Today we begin in earnest the work of making sure that the world we leave our children is just a little bit better than the one we inhabit today.” – Obama
“It’s not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.“ – Obama
“My job is not to represent Washington to you, but to represent you to Washington.“ – Obama
“My parents shared not only an improbable love, they shared an abiding faith in the possibilities of this nation. They would give me an African name, Barack, or blessed, believing that in a tolerant America your name is no barrier to success.” – Obama
“People of Berlin – people of the world – this is our moment. This is our time.” – Obama
“There is not a liberal America and a conservative America – there is the United States of America. There is not a black America and a white America and latino America and asian America – there’s the United States of America.” – Obama
“This is the moment when we must come together to save this planet. Let us resolve that we will not leave our children a world where the oceans rise and famine spreads and terrible storms devastate our lands.“ – Obama
“Today we are engaged in a deadly global struggle for those who would intimidate, torture, and murder people for exercising the most basic freedoms. If we are to win this struggle and spread those freedoms, we must keep our own moral compass pointed in a true direction.“ – Obama
“Tonight, we gather to affirm the greatness of our nation – not because of the height of our skyscrapers, or the power of our military, or the size of our economy. Our pride is based on a very simple premise, summed up in a declaration made over two hundred years ago.“ – Obama
“We need somebody who’s got the heart, the empathy, to recognize what it’s like to be a young teenage mom, the empathy to understand what it’s like to be poor or African-American or gay or disabled or old – and that’s the criterion by which I’ll be selecting my judges.“ – Obama
“We need to steer clear of this poverty of ambition, where people want to drive fancy cars and wear nice clothes and live in nice apartments but don’t want to work hard to accomplish these things. Everyone should try to realize their full potential.” – Obama
“We’re not going to baby sit a civil war. What Washington needs is adult supervision.“ – Obama
“Where the stakes are the highest, in the war on terror, we cannot possibly succeed without extraordinary international cooperation. Effective international police actions require the highest degree of intelligence sharing, planning and collaborative enforcement.“ – Obama
“We’ve got a tragic history when it comes to race in this country. We’ve got a lot of pent-up anger and bitterness and misunderstanding. … This country wants to move beyond these kinds of things.” – Obama
“In Africa, you often see that the difference between a village where everybody eats and a village where people starve is government. One has a functioning government, and the other does not. Which is why it bothers me when I hear people say that government is the enemy. They don’t understand its fundamental role.” – Obama
“You know, my faith is one that admits some doubt.” – Obama
“America, this is our moment. This is our time. Our time to turn the page of the policies of the past.” – Obama
