On this anniversary of the Sept. 11 tragedy, Albert Basse Associates invites you to remember our American heroes and reflect with these powerful quotes.

"Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost, a way to reclaim that spirit of unity that followed 9/11."
- Former President Obama

"If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate."
- Sandy Dahl, wife of Flight 93 pilot Jason Dahl

"My older brother John lived in Technicolor. When he walked in the door, the whole house lit up. And I'm sure heaven lit up when he got there too."
- Anthoula Katsimatides

"One of the worst days in America's history saw some of the bravest acts in Americans' history. We'll always honor the heroes of 9/11. And here at this hallowed place, we pledge that we will never forget their sacrifice."
- Then President George W. Bush at the Pentagon in 2008

"My father, Norberto, was a pastry chef at ­Windows on the World in Tower One. For 10 years, he made many fancy and famous ­desserts, but the sweetest dessert he made was the marble cake he made for us at home. Whenever we parted, Poppi would say, 'Te amo. Vaya con Dios.' And this morning, I want to say the same thing to you, Poppi. I love you. Go with God."
- Catherine Hernandez

"With almost no time to decide, your loved ones gave the entire country an incalculable gift. They saved the Capitol from attack. They saved the terrorists from claiming the symbolic victory of smashing the center of American government. They allowed us to survive as a country that could fight terror and still maintain liberty and still welcome people from all over the world from every religion and race and culture as long as they shared our values, because ­ordinary people given no time at all to decide did the right thing."
- Former President Bill Clinton in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, in 2011
