HAPPY 99TH BIRTHDAY, MR. PRESIDENT – 16 FAVORITE QUOTES

Posted by Andrew Roman on February 6, 2010

 

“Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today’s world do not have. “

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”

“Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.”

“Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.”

“How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.”

 “I have wondered at times what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the US Congress. “

“If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”

“It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.”

“Man is not free unless government is limited.”

“The problem is not that people are taxed too little, the problem is that government spends too much.”

“I don’t believe in a government that protects us from ourselves.”

“The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.'”

“Thomas Jefferson once said, ‘We should never judge a president by his age, only by his works.’ And ever since he told me that, I stopped worrying.”

“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.”

“In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”

“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, wind-swept, 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 the heart to get here. That’s how I saw it and see it still.”
