Арслантайхан уу эрээн авдраа хө

Арслантайхан уу эрээн авдраа болбол доо
Алхан чиг алтан чиг хээгээр хашсан чиг юмаа хө
Ай шинэхэн чиг ханилсан чи бидэн хоёроо
Дөлтэйхэн халуухан голомтныхоо хоймортоо
Дөрвөн их хүчтэнээ байлгаюу гэсэн юмаа хө
Сосорбарам - Арслантай авдар

"digging beneath the surface differences"

“There is no doubt that what I retained in my politics is a sense that the only way I could have a sturdy sense of identity of who I was depended on digging beneath the surface differences of people,” Obama said during an interview. “The only way my life makes sense is if, regardless of culture, race, religion, tribe, there is this commonality, these essential human truths and passions and hopes and moral precepts that are universal. And that we can reach out beyond our differences. If that is not the case, then it is pretty hard for me to make sense of my life. So that is at the core of who I am.”
from "Barack Obama: The Story" by David Maraniss

“I have to say at the risk of blasphemy that I found the Supreme Court an unimpressive institution,” [Richard Posner] wrote. “I was stunned to discover that Supreme Court Justices didn’t write all their own judicial opinions ([Justice William O.] Douglas did—and his were the weakest, though not because he was dumb—rather because he was bored)
