Directly down the lawn and accross the Ellipse from the White House are those ordered, classic lines of the Jefferson Memorial and the eyes of the 19-foot statue that gaze directly into the White House, a reminder to any of us who might occupy that mansion of the quality of mind and generosity of heart that once abided there and has been so rarely seen there again.

Elvis epitomised America, and for that we shall be eternally grateful. There will never be anyone else like him. Let's all rejoice in his music.

Ronald Reagan
Freedom prospers only where the blessings of God are avidly sought, and humbly accepted.
Ronald Reagan

Every dollar the federal government does not take from us, every decision it does not make for us, will make our economy stronger, our lives more abundant, our future more free.

Ronald Reagan
Peace is more than just an absence of war. True peace is justice, true peace is freedom, and true peace dictates the recognition of human rights.
Ronald Reagan

Ronald Reagan
The future is best decided by ballots, not bullets.
Ronald Reagan

Ronald Reagan
Through you, we feel as giants, once again.
Ronald Reagan

We don't have a trillion-dollar debt because we haven't taxed enough; we have a trillion-dollar debt because we spend too much.

Ronald Reagan
Violence has been Nicaragua's most important export to the world.
