Marine Corps Quotes: Jim Lehrer

Carl | March 21, 2013 

“My Marine service was a life-changing experience for me.
A positive one that had I not had, I most likely would not be standing here today….
In that diverse company I learned to be responsible for others, I learned to depend on others, and to understand what being depended on by others really meant.
I learned that there was more to the world than me, and my kind….
I learned there was joy and satisfaction to be had by looking past the mirror.
By serving common interests rather than only those of self….
My three years of service connected me to the rest of the world, the world outside myself, and the connection has been permanent.”

Jim Lehrer, retired Marine, Harvard commencement speech, 8 June 2006
