I was raised to believe that God has a plan for everyone and that seemingly random twists of fate are all a part of His plan.
The American taxing structure, the purpose of which was to serve the people, began instead to serve the insatiable appetite of government. If you will forgive me, you know someone has once likened government to a baby. It is an alimentary canal with an appetite at one end and no sense of responsibil
I'm proud of having been one of the first to recognize that states and the federal government have a duty to protect our natural resources from the damaging effects of pollution that can accompany industrial development.
I have learned that one of the most important rules in politics is poise - which means looking like an owl after you have behaved like a jackass.
Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall. And get a massage - you look really stressed
I do not believe in taking away the right of the citizen for sporting, for hunting and so forth, or for home defense. But I do believe that an AK-47, a machine gun, is not a sporting weapon or needed for defense of a home.
Do what's right and you'll please some of the people and astound the rest.
A people free to choose will always choose peace.
Spending on the military doesn't increase the deficit.
Trees cause pollution.
Please assure me that you are all Republicans.
As long as there are guns, the individual that wants a gun for a crime is going to have one and going to get it. The only person who's going to be penalized and have difficulty is the law-abiding citizen, who then cannot have [it] if he wants protection -- the protection of a weapon in his home.
The destiny of man is not measured by material computations. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn weâ€™re spiritsâ€”not animalsâ€¦. Thereâ€™s something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty.
You and I know and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery. If nothing in life is worth dying for, when did this begin-just in the face of this enemy? Or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the ph
It's been written that the most sublime figure in American history was George Washington on his knees in the snow at Valley Forge. He personified a people who knew that it was not enough to depend on their own courage and goodness, that they must also seek help from God - their Father and preserver.
Peace is not absence of conflict, it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means.
Our military strength is a prerequisite to peace, but let it be clear we maintain this strength in the hope it will never be used.
Now I realize it's fashionable in some circles to believe that no one in government should encourage others to read the Bible. That we're told we'll violate the constitutional separation of church and state established by the Founding Fathers and the First Amendment. The First Amendment was not writ
We have every right to dream heroic dreams.
The Bible can touch our hearts, order our minds, refresh our souls.
One picture is worth 1,000 denials. Ronald Re
Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.
I know that it is often difficult to stand up for one's beliefs when they are being harshly challenged. But as one who has seen many challenges over a long lifetime, I can assure you that personal faith and conviction are strengthened, not weakened, in adversity.
Outside of its legitimate function, government does nothing as well or economically as the private sector.
I just have to believe that with love for our natural heritage and a firm resolve to preserve it with wisdom and care, we can and will give the American land to our children, not impaired, but enhanced. And in doing this, we'll honor the great and loving God who gave us this land in the first place.
There are no great limits to growth because there are no limits of human intelligence, imagination, and wonder.
The thought of being President frightens me and I do not think I want the job. Ronald Reaga
I'm no linguist, but I have been told that in the Russian language, there isn't even a word for freedom.
There is a flickering spark in us all which, if struck at just the right age...can light the rest of our lives, elevating our ideals, deepening our tolerance, and sharpening our appetite for knowledge about the rest of the world. Educational and cultural exchanges...provide a perfect opportunity for
Together, let us make this a new beginning. Let us make a commitment to care for the needy, to teach our children the values and the virtues handed down to us by our families, to have the courage to defend those values and the willingess to sacrifice for them. Let us pledge to restore, in our time,
