Do you have a favorite Presidential quote?

i have a few, but I really like this one:

It is always better to have no ideas than false ones; to believe nothing, than to believe what is wrong.
~ Thomas Jefferson

  • "You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
    You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
    You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves."

    --Abraham Lincoln

    You'd think since Obama took the Oath of Office of Lincoln's Bible that he would at least adopt SOME of his attitude, but I guess that was all for show! LOL

  • "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country" JFK

    I think the mindset of serving our country is lost and has been for quite some time. Having people understand that working towards a greater good for our nation, would make things better on a national and local level.

  • A house divided against itself cannot stand.

    Allow the president to invade a neighboring nation, whenever he shall deem it necessary to repel an invasion, and you allow him to do so whenever he may choose to say he deems it necessary for such a purpose - and you allow him to make war at pleasure.

    Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?

    As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master. This expresses my idea of democracy.

  • A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both.

    Don't join the book burners. Do not think you are going to conceal thoughts by concealing evidence that they ever existed.

    Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.

    Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionists and rebels - men and women who dare to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, may we never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion.
