Oh boy, what I am going to do to the next person who says, "To whom much is given, much is expected."
I hear it quite often at graduations and political speeches. For example I just heard it at Notre Dame’s graduation, the Lakeshore High graduation, and from George Bush (43rd President) at a speech he gave at Lake Michigan College. It is used often in political speeches because it means, “Don’t deny me your vote just because I am a rich person and got things easy in life because I’m really looking out for lowly people like you.”
The Kennedys said it a lot and it was made popular by Michael Dukakis when he ran for president. Sorry, I’m not normal; I remember everything I see and hear.
I love this; it reminds me of what Uncle Ben tells Peter in Spider-Man: "With great power comes great responsibility." No, with great power comes awesomeness.
