De 20 mooiste quotes van Barack Obama

In de Bedrock-serie ‘De mooiste quotes van…’ delen we regelmatig inspirerende citaten van wijze mensen. En eerlijk is eerlijk, als we iemands wijsheid missen, is het wel die van oud-president Barack Obama. Nu het alweer ruim 2 jaar geleden is dat bekend werd dat Trump het stokje van hem zou overnemen, is het tijd voor een klein beetje extra aandacht voor de 44e president van de Verenigde Staten.

We miss you, Obama.
