My country owes me nothing. It gave me, as it gives every boy and girl, a chance. It gave me schooling, independence of action, opportunity for service and honor. In no other land could a boy from a country village, without inheritance or influential friends, look forward with unbounded hope.

Herbert Hoover

Herbert Clark Hoover (August 10, 1874 – October 20, 1964) was the 31st President of the United States (1929–1933). He was a professional mining engineer and was raised as a Quaker. A Republican, Hoover served as head of the U.S. Food Administration during World War I, and became internationally known for humanitarian relief efforts in war-time Belgium. As the United States Secretary of Commerce in the 1920s under Presidents Warren G. Harding and Calvin Coolidge, he promoted partnerships between government and business under the rubric "economic modernization". In the presidential election of 1928, Hoover easily won the Republican nomination, despite having no elected-office experience.

    mon pays ne me doit rien. il m'a donné, car il donne à chaque garçon et fille, une chance. cela m'a donné la scolarité, l'indépendance d'action, la possibilité de servir et d'honneur. dans aucun autre pays, un garçon d'un village de campagne, sans héritage ni amis influents, ne pouvait regarder en avant avec un espoir sans bornes.

    negara saya tidak berhutang apa-apa kepada saya. itu memberi saya, karena memberi setiap anak laki-laki dan perempuan, peluang. itu memberi saya sekolah, kebebasan bertindak, kesempatan untuk pelayanan dan kehormatan. di negeri lain, seorang anak lelaki dari desa desa, tanpa warisan atau teman-teman yang berpengaruh, dapat berharap dengan harapan tanpa batas.
