We must always remember that America is a great nation today not because of what government did for people but because of what people did for themselves and for one another.
I let the American people down.
The American people are entitled to see the president and to hear his views directly, and not to see him only through the press.
People in the media say they must look at the president with a microscope. Now, I don't mind a microscope, but boy, when they use a proctoscope, that's going too far.
People who like this sort of thing will find this is the sort of thing they like.
Politics would be a helluva good business if it weren't for the goddamned people.
Americans admire a people who can scratch a desert and produce a garden. The Israelis have shown qualities that Americans identify with: guts, patriotism, idealism, a passion for freedom. I have seen it. I know. I believe that.
As this long and difficult war ends, I would like to address a few special words to the American people: Your steadfastness in supporting our insistence on peace with honor has made peace with honor possible.
People have got to know whether or not their president is a crook. Well, I'm not a crook. I earned everything I've got.
People react to fear, not love; they don't teach that in Sunday School, but it's true.
There are some people, you know, they think the way to be a big man is to shout and stomp and raise hell-and then nothing ever really happens. I'm not like that I never shoot blanks.
