We've got some hurdles to clear in the future but that's hardly anything new. We've always had hurdles and we've always cleared them in the past and we'll clear them in the future. The mutual respect, the mutual trust, is the glue that holds us together, and it will continue to hold us together in the future.

We can allow the future to shape us, or we can shape our future. I believe the best way to predict the future is to invent it – and that’s what we’re all about.

State Farm is a reflection of all of us. Together through all of our actions we create the spirit of State Farm. It’s a spirit of caring. We care about our customers and are guided daily by our mission to help them. But we also care about each other. Relationships are at the heart of who we are and what we do.
