"So now, it's up to us, all of us, to prepare America for that day when our work will pale before the greatness of America's champions."-Ronald Reagan
I love to listen to a Presidential Speech. The clarity of one's voice and tone matches no other time in (listening to) history. There is something to be said when a World Leader begins a speech that rallies his people for Peace, for Discovery or Call to Arms. Many speeches have inspired the average person to do incredible things. But nothing moves people more in that moment than a sentence or quotation. It is truly in that moment, when the words complete that resounding sentence forever lasting, that sets itself apart; too forever be quoted. I invite you to share some of your favorite quotations with me!
"I promise you I will listen to what has been said here, even though I wasn't here."
George W Bush
Can you tell me when he said and in what context? Thanks, Julie
"A good compromise, a good piece of legislation, is like a good sentence; or a good piece of music. Everybody can recognize it. They say, 'Huh. It works. It makes sense.' "
"What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness, but is love and wisdom, and compassion toward one another, and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country."
Well you asked.

"Goodbye from the world's biggest polluter." --George W. Bush, in parting words to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and French President Nicolas Sarkozy at his final G-8 Summit, punching the air and grinning widely as the two leaders looked on in shock, Rusutsu, Japan, July 10, 2008
"There is some who say that perhaps freedom is not universal. Maybe it's only Western people that can self-govern. Maybe it's only, you know, white-guy Methodists who are capable of self-government. I reject that notion." --George W. Bush, London, June 16, 2008
