America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.
Enjoy the peace your valor won. Let independence be our boast, Ever mindful what it cost; Ever grateful for the prize, Let its altar reach the skies!
First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win.
Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together
Laughter is America's most important export.
One flag, one land, one heart, one hand, One Nation evermore!
Part of the American Dream is to live long and die young. Only those Americans who are willing to die for their country are fit to live.
Show me a man who will jump out of an airplane, and I'll show you a man who'll fight.
The trouble with this country is that there are too many people going about saying ' The trouble with this country is...'
We must stop talking about the American Dream and start listening to the dreams of the Americans.
...the world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but can never forget what they did here. It is for us, the living, rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they have, thus far, so nobly carried on. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us - that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotion - that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation shall have a new birth of freedom; and that this government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
A day, an hour, of virtuous liberty is worth a whole eternity in bondage.
all give some but some give ALL!!!!
AMERICA IS BEAUTIFUL! If you don't believe it,
just stop and ask yourself why we have some many people
trying to get into this place!
America is the greatest force that God
has ever allowed to exist on his footstool.
America is the greatest, freest and most decent society in existence. It is an oasis of goodness in a desert of cynicism and barbarism. This country, once an experiment unique in the world, is now the last best hope for the world.
Americanism means the virtues of courage, honor, justice, truth, sincerity, and hardihood—the virtues that made America. The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living and the get-rich-quick theory of life.”
As one comes down the Henry Hudson Parkway along the river in the dusk, New York is never real; it is always fabulous.
Beautify America. Wear a hat!
Crossing the street in New York keeps old people young - if they make it.
"Our Flag is red, white, and blue, but our nation is a rainbow - red, yellow, brown, black, and white - and we're all precious..."
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this
continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the
proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in
a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so
conceived and so dedicated can long endure. We are met on a great
battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of
that field as a final resting-place for those who here gave their
lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and
proper that we should do this. But in a larger sense, we cannot
dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground.
The brave men, living an...
Freedom has a price, and it is high. Sometimes a man must give all he can, sometimes a man must die.
Freedom is not the right to do as you please, but the liberty to do as you ought.
Freedom is the oxygen of the soul.
Give me a man, or woman, who will bend with the wind of the voter's voices, but stand firmly grounded with a passion for wisdom and integrity, while never forgetting the promises they made before being elected.
Home of the Free Because of Our Brave
I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people, whose jsut powers are derived from the
consent of the govenrned; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect Union, on and inseparable; extablished
upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.
I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.
I have not yet begun to fight.
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
I still believe America’s destiny is to become a living testament to what free human beings can accomplish by acting in unity.”
I toss and turn all night. My wife tells me I yell at other drivers in my sleep!
If the United States is a melting pot, then New York makes it bubble.
In GOD we trust, in everyone else we monitor.
In the Past...
This country has been called "the melting pot." Customs and cultures from many lands were expected to blend together, like ingredients in a cream soup.
We're starting to realize that the U.S. is more like a tossed salad--a variety of flavors, textures, colors, and shapes.
It is natural to shut our eyes against a painful truth. But I am willing to know the whole truth and act as it demands.
It is ridiculous to set a detective story in New York City. New York City is itself a detective story.
Justice remains the greatest power on earth, to that tremendous power alone will we submit.
Let every American, every lover of liberty, every well wisher to his posterity, swear by the blood of the Revolution, never to violate in the least particular, the laws of the country; and never to tolerate their violation by others.
Life without liberty is like a body without spirit.
My dream is of a place and a time where America will once again be seen as the last best hope on earth.
My fellow Americans; ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.
--John F. Kennedy
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
New York is a city of conversations overheard, of people at the next restaurant table (micrometers away) checking your watch, of people reading the stories in your newspaper on the subway train.
No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the human spirit.
Nothing can bring you peace but yourself.
Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country
One has not discovered the true beauty of America until seeing the Sequoia. It was standing tall when the Lord walked this earth.
One man with great courage makes a majority.
Patriotism is the glue that holds this great country together!
Terrorism is the use of violence against civilians to promote a cause so
unpopular that it cannot succeed without intimidation.
The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.
The God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time.
The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil constitution, are worth defending, against all hazards. And it is our duty to defend them against all attacks.
The recognition of power higher than man himself does not in any sense debase him. If in his faith he ascribes beneficence and high purpose to the power which is superior to himself, he envisions a higher destiny and nobler attributes for his kind and is stimulated and encouraged in the struggle of existence. . . . He must seek believing, praying, and hoping that he will find. No such sincere, prayerful effort will go unrequited—that is the very constitution of the philosophy of faith.
The test of every religious, political, or educational system is the man that it forms.
This country will not be a permanently good place for any of us to live in unless we make it a reasonably good place for all of us to live in.
We, the people of the United States
in order to form a more perfect union,
establish justice, insure domestic tranquility,
provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessing of liberty
to ourselves and our posterity,
do ordain and establish
this Constitution for the United States of America.
When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.
You have to run ahead of people and try to kill them.
“We hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”
