President Barack Obama accepted the Democratic Presidential nomination Thursday night in Charlotte. The President reminded America that the road was never promised to be easy but he did promise that the issues would be resolved if he is re-elected to serve four more years. Here are a few memorable quotes from Thursday’s speech:

‘‘Now I won’t pretend the path I’m offering is quick or easy. I never have. You didn’t elect me to tell you what you wanted to hear. You elected me to tell you the truth. And the truth is, it will take more than a few years for us to solve challenges that have built up over decades.’’

‘‘But know this, America: Our problems can be solved. Our challenges can be met. The path we offer may be harder, but it leads to a better place. And I’m asking you to choose that future.’’

‘‘America, I never said this journey would be easy, and I won’t promise that now. Yes, our path is harder, but it leads to a better place. Yes, our road is longer, but we travel it together. We won’t turn back. We leave no one behind. We pull each other up. We draw strength from our victories and we learn from our mistakes, but we keep our eyes fixed on that distant horizon, knowing that Providence is with us, and that we are surely blessed to be citizens of the greatest nation on earth.’’

‘‘When you pick up that ballot to vote, you will face the clearest choice of any time in a generation.’’

‘‘But know this, America: Our problems can be solved. Our challenges can be met. The path we offer may be harder, but it leads to a better place. And I’m asking you to choose that future.’’
