NUMBER:210
AUTHOR:Lyndon Baines Johnson (1908–73)
QUOTATION:The American city should be a collection of communities where every member has a right to belong. It should be a place where every man feels safe on his streets and in the house of his friends. It should be a place where each individual’s dignity and self-respect is strengthened by the respect and affection of his neighbors. It should be a place where each of us can find the satisfaction and warmth which comes from being a member of the community of man. This is what man sought at the dawn of civilization. It is what we seek today.
ATTRIBUTION:President LYNDON B. JOHNSON, special message to the Congress on the nation’s cities, March 2, 1965.—Public Papers of the Presidents of the United States: Lyndon B. Johnson, 1965, book 1, p. 240.
