As President Barack Obama prepares for his second inauguration, take a look at some of the notable quotes from previous inaugural addresses.
"Because we are free, we can never be indifferent to the fate of freedom elsewhere. Our moral sense dictates a clear-cut preference for those societies which share with us an abiding respect for individual human rights. We do not seek to intimidate, but it is clear that a world which others can dominate with impunity would be inhospitable to decency and a threat to the well-being of all people."
-Jimmy Carter, Jan. 20, 1977
