Ronald Reagan's quotes
Ronald Reagan's 5 speeches
"Freedom is the right to question and change the established way of doing things. It is the continuous revolution of the marketplace. It is the understanding that allows us to recognize shortcomings and seek solutions."
"Government does not tax to get the money it needs; government always finds a need for the money it gets."
"Are you entitled to the fruits of your labor or does government have some presumptive right to spend and spend and spend?"
"No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size."
"A government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth."
"Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other."
"As government expands, liberty contracts."
"Nations crumble from within when the citizenry asks of government those things which the citizenry might better provide for itself."
"I think the best possible social program is a job."
"The federal government has taken too much tax money from the people, too much authority from the states, and too much liberty with the Constitution."
"Outside of its legitimate function, government does nothing as well or as economically as the private sector."
"Government is not a solution to our problem, government is the problem."
"We've been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. Well, if no one among us is capable of government himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else?"
"In an atmosphere of liberty, artists and patrons are free to think the unthinkable and create the audacious; they are free to make both horrendous mistakes and glorious celebrations."
"Life is just one grand sweet song, so start the music."
Life & Death
"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."
"The West will not contain Communism, it will transcend Communism. We will not bother to denounce it, we'll dismiss it as a sad, bizarre chapter in human history whose last pages are even now being written."
"I hope that when you are my age, you will 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."
"The crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they lived their lives. We will never forget them, nor the last time we saw them, this morning, as they prepared for their journey and waved goodbye and 'slipped the surly bonds of earth' to 'touch the face of God.'"
"Information is the oxygen of the modern age. It seeps through the walls topped by barbed wire, it wafts across the electrified borders."
