Ronald Reagan quotes page 4
Regrettably, we live at a time when some persons do not value all human life. They want to
pick and choose which individuals have value.
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 such things as limits to growth, because there are no limits to the human
capacity for intelligence, imagination, and wonder.
I call upon the scientific community in our country, those who gave us nuclear weapons, to
turn their great talents now to the cause of mankind and world peace: to give us the means
of rendering these nuclear weapons impotent and obsolete.
I'm not smart enough to lie.
I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited.
There's a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As
government expands, liberty contracts.
In closing, let me thank you, the American people, for giving me the great honor of allowing
me to serve as your president. When the Lord calls me home, whenever that day may be, I
will leave with the greatest love for this country of ours and eternal optimism for its future. I
now begin the journey that will lead me into the sunset of my life. I know that for America
there will always be a bright dawn ahead. Thank you, my friends. May God always bless you.
