From the official white house transcript:
…..So, yes, Shimon Peres — born in a shtetl in what was then Poland, who rose to become President of Israel — he is a dreamer. And rightly so. For he knows what we must never forget: With faith in ourselves and courage in our hearts, no dream is too big, no vision is beyond our reach…..
…..Shimon, to all our friends here tonight, and to our fellow citizens across America and Israel — may we never lose sight of our destination. Shalom, and may we always be as young as our dreams.
