    schema:description "From the bestselling editor of "The Reagan Diaries" come the newly disclosed notebooks of Ronald Reagan. Collected by the Ronald Reagan Foundation, the book includes both Reagan's own writing and his favorite quotations, proverbs, and excerpts from speeches, poetry, and literature. Known as the "Great Communicator," Reagan sought wisdom from a wide-ranging set of political figures, philosophers, novelists, and poets, including Abraham Lincoln, Daniel Webster, John F. Kennedy, and Thomas Jefferson, as well as Mohandas Gandhi, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Mark Twain, and Thomas Wolfe. The Notes encapsulates a lifetime of reflections on work, marriage, and family in classic one-liners such as "Flattery is what makes husbands out of bachelors" and "Money may not buy friends, but it will help you to stay in contact with your children." Reagan's own writing -- his jokes, aphorisms, and insights into politics and life -- is often surprising and reveals a view of the president that has rarely before been seen."@en ;
