Concentrated power has always been the enemy of liberty.
But there are advantages to being elected President. The day after I was elected, I had my high school grades classified Top Secret.
Entrepreneurs and their small enterprises are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States.
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.
Going to college offered me the chance to play football for four more years.
Don't be afraid to see what you see.
Government always finds a need for whatever money it gets.
Government does not solve problems; it subsidizes them.
Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves.
Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.
Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.
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.
Governments tend not to solve problems, only to rearrange them.
Heroes may not be braver than anyone else. They're just braver five minutes longer.
History teaches that war begins when governments believe the price of aggression is cheap.
How can a president not be an actor?
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 am not worried about the deficit. It is big enough to take care of itself.
I never drink coffee at lunch. I find it keeps me awake for the afternoon.
I've never been able to understand why a Republican contributor is a 'fat cat' and a Democratic contributor of the same amount of money is a 'public-spirited philanthropist'.
If the federal government had been around when the Creator was putting His hand to this state, Indiana wouldn't be here. It'd still be waiting for an environmental impact statement.
If the Soviet Union let another political party come into existence, they would still be a one-party state, because everybody would join the other party.
If we love our country, we should also love our countrymen.
It doesn't do good to open doors for someone who doesn't have the price to get in. If he has the price, he may not need the laws. There is no law saying the Negro has to live in Harlem or Watts.
It's true hard work never killed anybody, but I figure, why take the chance?
Man is not free unless government is limited.
No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!
No mother would ever willingly sacrifice her sons for territorial gain, for economic advantage, for ideology.
One way to make sure crime doesn't pay would be to let the government run it.
Peace is not absence of conflict, it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means.
Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed there are many rewards, if you disgrace yourself you can always write a book.
Protecting the rights of even the least individual among us is basically the only excuse the government has for even existing.
Recession is when a neighbor loses his job. Depression is when you lose yours.
Status quo, you know, is Latin for 'the mess we're in'.
Surround yourself with the best people you can find, delegate authority, and don't interfere as long as the policy you've decided upon is being carried out.
The best minds are not in government. If any were, business would steal them away.
The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help.
The problem is not that people are taxed too little, the problem is that government spends too much.
There are no constraints on the human mind, no walls around the human spirit, no barriers to our progress except those we ourselves erect.
There are no easy answers' but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.
There are no great limits to growth because there are no limits of human intelligence, imagination, and wonder.
To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last - but eat you he will.
Unemployment insurance is a pre-paid vacation for freeloaders.
We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone.
We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.
We should measure welfare's success by how many people leave welfare, not by how many are added.
Welfare's purpose should be to eliminate, as far as possible, the need for its own existence.
When you can't make them see the light, make them feel the heat.
