"You talk to Senator Goldwater about his views. I have expressed mine positively, affirmatively and completely, without reference to anybody or Senator Goldwater, but just myself. If I say I believe I loved my mother, you would say it is a jab at Senator Goldwater." - Lyndon B. Johnson, News conference, Washington, D.C., September 5, 1964.
"Our aim, as I understand it, is neither to establish a segregated society nor to establish an integrated society as such. It is to preserve a free society.... One thing that will surely poison and embitter our relations with each other is the idea that some predetermined bureaucratic schedule of equality--and, worst of all, a schedule based on the concept of race--must be imposed." - Barry Goldwater, presidential campaign speech, 1964.
