We will not forget that Liberty has here made her home; nor shall her chosen altar be neglected.”

—President Grover Cleveland accepting the Statue of Liberty
on behalf of the U.S., October 28th, 1886


“We didn’t raise the Statue of Liberty with her back to the world – we did it with her light shining like a beacon to the world.” “Nous n’avons pas érigé la Statue de la Liberté le dos tourné au monde – nous l’avons fait avec son flambeau brillant comme un phare pour le monde”.

President Barack Obama speaking on #ImmigrationAction at Del Sol High School in Las Vegas, Nevada, November 21, 2014.
