There were three US presidents who received the Nobel Peace Prize and highlighted the importance of the citizen:
- Theodore Roosevelt (Republican, 1906);
- Woodrow Wilson (Democrat, 1919);
- Barack Obama (Democrat, 2009);
Barack Obama (2009-2017): „The most important title is not 'president' or 'prime minister'; the most important title is 'citizen. It is citizens - ordinary men and women, determined to forge their own future - who throughout history have sparked all the great change and progress."
Theodore Roosevelt (1901-1909): "The first requiste of a good citizen in this republic of ours is that he shell be able and willing to pull his own weight."
Woodrow Wilson (1913-1921): "We are citizens of the world. The tragedy of our times is that we do not know this."
