Life Lessons and Other Bon Mots from October Birthday Kids

"I voted for the infrastructure bill with the promise that it would be passed alongside the Build Back Better plan. That was the deal—House Progressives are right to demand that we make good on it. Investments in roads and bridges and investments in families must go hand in hand."
—Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR)

"God always answers prayers. Sometimes it's 'yes.' Sometimes the answer is 'no.' Sometimes it's 'you gotta be kidding.'"
—President Jimmy Carter


"There’s a reason white supremacy attacks history. Opposition to teaching bigotry’s history and where it leads—from the slave trade to the Holocaust—is about erasing society’s tools to recognize prejudice & prevent atrocity. Holocaust denial has no place in our society. None."
—Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY)

“Resentment and anger are bad for your blood pressure and your digestion.”
—Bishop Desmond Tutu

“If fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the women’s card, then deal me in.”
—Hillary Rodham Clinton

“Leave every place you go, everything you touch, a little better for your having been there.”
—Julie Andrews

How many times can one man be declared the loser of an election? Asking for a guy in Florida.

"Democracy is not a state in which people act like sheep."
—Mahatma Gandhi

"It's not whether you win or lose, it's how you place the blame."
—Oscar Wilde

“You're not really famous until you’re a Pez dispenser.”
—Carrie Fisher

—Rep. Devin Nunes
