Here are some of my favorites:

Reagan quotes:
The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant: It's just that they know so much that isn't so.

Ronald Reagan

Ronald Reagan
Abortion is advocated only by persons who have themselves been born.

Ronald Reagan
All great change in America begins at the dinner table.

Ronald Reagan
Coersion, after all, merely captures man. Freedom captivates him.

Ronald Reagan

Ronald Reagan
Facts are stupid things.

Ronald Reagan
Freedom is one of the deepest and noblest aspirations of the human spirit.

Ronald Reagan
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.

Ronald Reagan
Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.

Ronald Reagan
The 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.

Ronald Reagan
If you always tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

The more you judge, the less you love

Ralph Waldo Emerson:
We are reformers in spring and summer; in autumn and winter, we stand by the old; reformers in the morning, conservers at night.

Ralph Waldo Emerson:
One sign of mental health is the disposition to find good wherever you look.

Robert Anton Wilson:
It only takes 20 years for a liberal to become a conservative without changing a single idea.

Wendy Kaminer:
A liberal is a conservative who's been arrested. A conservative is a liberal who's been mugged.

Willis Player:
A liberal is a person whose interests aren't at stake, at the moment.

Winston Churchill:
Any man who is under 30, and is not a liberal, has not heart; and any man who is over 30, and is not a conservative, has no brains. http://www.quotedb.com/quotes/1358

Will Durant:
The trouble with most people is that they think with their hopes or fears or wishes rather than with their minds.

Winston Churchill:
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.

Friedrich Nietzsche:
In heaven all the interesting people are missing.

Dan Quayle
I stand by all the misstatements that I've made.

P. J. O'Rourke
If government were a product, selling it would be illegal.

I hate quotations. Tell me what you know.

Bob Dylan
A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom.

H. L. Mencken
A cynic is a man who, when he smells flowers, looks around for a coffin.

H. L. Mencken
It is even harder for the average ape to believe that he has descended from man.

H. L. Mencken
It is the dull man who is always sure, and the sure man who is always dull.

Clarence Thomas:
"One of the reasons I don't do media interviews is that the media often has its own script. One reason these stories are never told is that they are contrary to the script that people play by. The media, unfortunately, have been universally untrustworthy because they have their own notions of what I should think or I should do."

At the height of the American Revolution Edmund Burke said, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."

Armed societies are polite societies?

I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6

Every time you buy Lexus - a cute puppy dies.

Every time you buy MB - a hot girl gets implants.

You can't copy a reputation.

When reason fails, personal attacks ensue.

The difference between ignorance and apathy? I don't know, and I don't care.

Don't believe everything you think.

Freedom is not free

"May you live as long as you want to....and want to as long as you live"

Don't believe everything you think

As pointed out to you on four prior occasions, this is NOT a Churchill Quote.

From the Churchill Center...

"Conservative by the time you're 35"
"If you're not a liberal when you're 25, you have no heart. If you're not a conservative by the time you're 35, you have no brain." There is no record of anyone hearing Churchill say this. Paul Addison of Edinburgh University makes this comment: "Surely Churchill can't have used the words attributed to him. He'd been a Conservative at 15 and a Liberal at 35! And would he have talked so disrespectfully of Clemmie, who is generally thought to have been a lifelong Liberal?"

Quotes Falsely Attributed To Him - The Churchill Centre

Would you like to guess which Ronald Reagan Quotes are incorrect?


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
