- We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.
- There seems to be an increasing awareness of something we Americans have known for some time: That the ten most dangerous words in the English language are, ‘Hi, I’m from the Government, and I’m here to help.’
- We in government should learn to look at our country with the eyes of the entrepreneur, seeing possibilities where others see only problems.
- My friends, history is clear: Lower tax rates means greater freedom, and wherever we lower the tax rates, our entire nation is better off.
- No one has yet found a way to repeal the law of supply and demand.
- Status quo, you know, that is Latin for ‘the mess we’re in’.
- A broader reading of history shows that appeasement, no matter how it is labeled, never fulfills the hopes of the appeasers.
- There are worse things to be called than a dreamer.
- The challenge of statesmanship is to have the vision to dream of a better, safer world and the courage, persistence and patience to turn that dream into reality.
- May each of you have heart to conceive, the understanding to direct, and the hand to execute works that will leave the world a little better for you having been here.
- Life and the preservation of freedom to live it in dignity is what we are on this earth to do.
- Progress is not foreordained. The key to freedom: Freedom of thought, freedom of information, freedom of communication.
- Individual freedom and the profit motive were the engines of progress which transformed an American wilderness into an economic dynamo that provided the American people with a standard of living that is still the envy of the world.
- I am no longer young. You might have suspected that. The house we hope to build is one that is not for my generation, but for your. It is your future that matters. And I hope that when you’re my age, you’ll be able to say as I have been able to say: We lived in freedom, we lived lives that were a statement, not an apology.
- I’ve spoken of the shining city all my political life, but I don’t know if I ever quite communicated what I saw when I said it. But in my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and heart to get here. That’s how I saw it, and see it still.
