Where there's liberty, art succeeds.

Ronald Reagan
The First Amendment of the Constitution was not written to protect the people from religion; that amendment was written to protect religion from government tyranny. . . But now we're told our children have no right to pray in school. Nonsense. The pendulum has swung too far toward intolerance against genuine religious freedom. It is time to redress the balance.
Ronald Reagan

They are our brothers, these freedom fighters.... They are the moral equal of our Founding Fathers and the brave men and women of the French Resistance. We cannot turn away from them, for the struggle here is not right versus left; it is right versus wrong.

Ronald Reagan
"...I know it's hard when you're up to your armpits in alligators to remember you came here to drain the swamp. (February 10, 1982)
Ronald Reagan

Government does not solve problems; it subsidizes them.

Ronald Reagan
Socialists ignore the side of man that is the spirit. They can provide you shelter, fill your belly with bacon and beans, treat you when you're ill, all the things guaranteed to a prisoner or a slave. They don't understand that we also dream.
Ronald Reagan

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 this precious spark to grow, making us more sensitive and wiser international citizens through our careers.

Ronald Reagan
Middle age is when you're faced with two temptations and you choose the one that will get you home by nine o'clock.
Ronald Reagan

The future doesn't belong to the light-hearted. It belongs to the brave.

Ronald Reagan
The victims of crime have been transformed into a group oppressively burdened by a system designed to protect them.
