There some great quotations being said by speakers at the 2012 DNC convention. 

I'll prime the pump with a few: Please add your favorites as comments. 

From Michelle Obama (Full DNC 2012 Speech)
"Doing the impossible is the history of this nation. It is who we are it is how this nation was built." 
"Success isn't how much money you make. It's the difference you make in people's lives." 
"Being president doesn't change who you are. It reveals who you are." 
"When you walk through the door of opportunity, you do not slam it behind you . You reach back and help others succeed"

From  San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro

"My mother fought hard for civil rights so instead of a mop, I could hold this microphone."  
 "My family's story isn't special. What's special is the America that makes our story possible." 
 "Can't be pro-business without being pro-education"
"The American Dream is not a sprint, and not a marathon, but a relay.
