Franklin Delano Roosevelt: Happiness lies in the joy of achieving and the thrill of creative effort.

Ronald Reagan: Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than a generation from extinction.

Those who have known freedom, and then lost it, have never known it again.
Theodore Roosevelt: I care not what others think of what I do, but I care very much about what I think of what I do! That is character!
