The founders of the United Nations sought to replace a world at war with a world of civilized order. They hoped that a world of relentless conflict would give way to a new era, one where freedom from violence prevailed.... But the awful truth is that the use of violence for political gain has become
We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone.
The task that has fallen to us as Americans is to move the conscience of the world, to keep alive the hope and dream of freedom. For if we fail or falter, there'll be no place for the world's oppressed to flee to. This is not a role we sought. We preach no manifest destiny. But like the Americans wh
People do not make wars; governments do.
There are no such things as limits to growth, because there are no limits to the human capacity for intelligence, imagination, and wonder
Freedom is the right to question and change the established way of doing things. It is the continuing revolution of the marketplace. It is the understanding that allows us to recognize shortcomings and seek solutions. It is the right to put forth an idea, scoffed at by the experts, and watch it catc
Words are even more feeble on this Memorial Day, for the sight before us is that of a strong and good nation that stands in silence and remembers those who were loved and who, in return, loved their countrymen enough to die for them.
It's true hard work never killed anybody, but I figure, why take the chance?
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.
We have God's promise that what we give will be given back many times over, so let us go forth from here and rekindle the fire of our faith. Let our wisdom be vindicated by our deeds. We are told in II Timothy that when our work is done, we can say, ``We have fought the good fight. We have finished
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.
A leader, once convinced that a particular course of action is the right one, must....be undaunted when the going gets tough.
Law and freedom must be indivisible partners. For without law, there can be no freedom, only choas and disorder; and without freedom, law is but a cynical veneer for injustice and oppression.
How could an actor become president?
Simple fairness dictates that government must not raise taxes on families struggling to pay their bills.
Government must not supersede the will of the people or the responsibilities of the people. The function of government is not to confer happiness, but to give men the opportunity to work out happiness for themselves.
Well I've said it before and I'll say it again Â— America's best days are yet to come. Our proudest moments are yet to be. Our most glorious achievements are just ahead.
In a world wracked by hatred, economic crisis, and political tension, America remains mankind's best hope.
The time has come to match outgo to income, instead of always doing it the other way around.
I believe the best social program is a job.
Americans are not going to tolerate intimidation, terror and outright acts of war against this nation and its people. And we are especially not going to tolerate these attacks from outlaw states run by the strangest collection of misfits, Looney Tunes and squalid criminals since the advent of the Th
It is the Soviet Union that runs against the tide of human history by denying human freedom and human dignity to its citizens.
An America that is militarily and economically strong is not enough. The world must see an America that is morally strong with a creed and a vision. This is what has led us to dare and achieve. For us, values count.
Deficits, as I've often said, aren't caused by too little taxing, they're caused by too much spending. Presidents can't appropriate a dollar of tax payers money, only Congressmen can; and Congress is susceptible to all sorts of influences that have nothing to do with good government.
I knew Thomas Jefferson. He was a friend of mine. And believe me, you are no Thomas Jefferson. (at 1992 Republican party convention, referring to Bill Clinton)
The Democrats say that the United States has had its days in the sun, that our nation has passed its zenith. They expect you to tell your children that the American people no longer have the will to cope with their problems, that the future will be one of sacrifice and few opportunities. My fellow c
