"...the dedication of a library is itself an act of faith. To bring together the records of the past and to house them in buildings where they will be preserved for the use of men and women in the future, a Nation must believe in three things.

It must believe in the past.
It must believe in the future.
It must, above all, believe in the capacity of its own people so to learn from the past that they can gain in judgment in creating their own future."

- Franklin D. Roosevelt, dedication speech, FDR Presidential Library, June 30, 1941
