AUTHOR:Adlai Ewing Stevenson (1900–65)
QUOTATION:What counts now is not just what we are against, but what we are for. Who leads us is less important than what leads us—what convictions, what courage, what faith—win or lose. A man doesn’t save a century, or a civilization, but a militant party wedded to a principle can.
ATTRIBUTION:ADLAI E. STEVENSON, governor of Illinois, welcoming address before the Democratic national convention, Chicago, Illinois, July 21, 1952.—Speeches of Adlai Stevenson, p. 17 (1952).
SUBJECTS:Belief
