My favorite quotes from the book:
- Chapter 6 New Challenges & Achievement – Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; for the LORD they God is with thee withersoever thou goest.
- When you allow yourself to dream, you look at at mound of clay & see a masterpiece. You look at a glass of water half-empty as a glass half-filled. When you dream again, you are able to recognize that problems are merely opportunities that could unlock the doors to your success! When you dream again, you view today as the first day of the rest of your life!
- Why do I, a son of the segregated South, refuse to think of myself as a “victim” of racism?
- My American dream entailed working hard & making $20,000 a year, but I surpassed that goal and became a corporate CEO, a regional chairman of the Federal Reserve, a president of the Restaurant Association, an author & an Atlanta talk show host before retiring at sixty-five on cruise control. And then I become a presidential aspirant.
- “We need leadership, not more position-ship. God bless America!
- I made a mental vow: I’m going to be myself. Remember, I don’t do canned responses. I believe people can smell them a mile away. I’m spontaneous. I’m who I am.
- We must also provide our men and women in uniform-the treasure of our nation-our veterans, and their families with the benefits they deserve for their sacrifices on our behalf. These heroes have served us. We must never forget to serve them.

My Overview: What is it in my DNA that years ago prompted me to forgo the ease of cruise control and take on the enormous challenge of doing my part toward making America a better place for my granddaughter and the generations to come? Why do I, a son of the segregated South, refuse to think of myself as a “victim” of racism? What is it that motivates me to insist on defining my identity in terms of “ABC”—as being American first, black second, and Conservative third? Just who is Herman Cain? And how did I get this way? Just a hint: it may have had something to do with lessons learned from my parents, Lenora and Luther Cain, Jr. —From the back cover
