A Bit of Wisdom from Joe Biden on His 80th Birthday

“Corruption is a cancer: a cancer that eats away at a citizen’s faith in democracy, diminishes the instinct for innovation and creativity; already-tight national budgets, crowding out important national investments. It wastes the talent of entire generations. It scares away investments and jobs.”

“Failure at some point in your life is inevitable, but giving up is unforgivable.”

“The greatest gift is the ability to forget – to forget the bad things and focus on the good.”

“For too long in this society, we have celebrated unrestrained individualism over common community.”

“I know I’m not supposed to like muscle cars, but I like muscle cars.”

“If I don’t run for president, we’ll all be OK.”
