This nation was conceived in liberty and dedicated to the principle - among others - that honest men may honestly disagree; that if they all say what they think, a majority of the people will be able to distinguish truth from error.
The first and great commandment is, don't let them scare you.
This will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.
One of the things that is wrong with America is that everybody who has done anything at all in his own field is expected to be an authority on every subject under the sun.

Thirty seconds is the exact amount of time Americans can tolerate something they don't understand.
When the nations of the world look upon the United States, they see a country which has achieved what they would all like to become one day. Whether it is in the field of science, art, music, agriculture, politics, economics or war, the United States is the leader.
America has no permanent friends or enemies, only interests.
The bedrock of this country are immigration and, really, a great separation between church and state.
Neutrality is a negative word. It does not express what America ought to feel. We are not trying to keep out of trouble; we are trying to preserve the foundations on which peace may be rebuilt.

Freedom is secured every day by our men and women in uniform. We must build a future worthy of their sacrifice.
Ceremonies are important. But our gratitude has to be more than visits to the troops, and once-a-year Memorial Day ceremonies. We honor the dead best by treating the living well.
Throughout the history of our young nation, we have seen our military go bravely into battle, armed with courage and willing to make the ultimate sacrifice.
As America celebrates Memorial Day, we pay tribute to those who have given their lives in our nation's wars.
Memorial Day isn't just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives. Veterans had the fortune of coming home. For us, that's a reminder of when we come home we still have a responsibility to serve. It's a continuation of service that honors our country and those who fell defending it.
Military service members and veterans, like my uncle, enable me to live my life with freedom and liberty.
For them there is no festival or feast. For them there is no party or celebration because they have the most important duty to fulfil. Salute to our soldiers!
Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.
On the occasion of Armed Forces Flag Day, let us help our soldiers in whichever way we can to tell them that we are with them. Warm wishes on this significant day.
For the battles, they have fought for us, for the glory they have brought to the nation. Let us salute our armed forces on Armed Forces Flag Day.
There is the National Flag. He must be cold, indeed, who can look upon its folds rippling in the breeze without pride of the country.
The valor and courage of our young women and men in the armed services are a shining example to all of the world, and we owe them and their families our deepest respect.
It is time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget: that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American Flag.
On this Armed Forces Day, we commemorate with gratitude and appreciation the brave men and women who risk their lives in service of our country. Their dedication and sacrifice are immeasurable and deserve our utmost respect. Let us celebrate their bravery and express our heartfelt thanks for their relentless commitment. Their contribution to our freedom and security is unforgettable.
On this solemn day, which celebrates the bravery and dedication of our armed forces, we raise our voices in praise. With pride and admiration, we behold the men and women who have devoted their lives to the protection and defense of our nation. May their deeds and courage forever dwell in our hearts.
Perfection is impossible. In the 1,526 singles matches I played in my career, I won almost 80% of those matches. But what percentage of points did I win? 54%!

We are looking forward to our fans, they will deliver again in Paris.

Recently, on my 18th birthday, my mother showed me a note from my time at primary school. We had to write down what we wanted to be. The only thing I'd written was: football player. I really did always want that and started early on to kick everything I came across: balloons, balls and anything else lying around the house. There was a lot flying about at our place.
