Abstract:

The Wit and Wisdom of Ronald Reagan invites you to revisit the words of our fortieth president?a man who left an indelible mark on the world over the course of his eight years in office. From humble beginnings, Ronald Reagan struggled through the Great Depression and carved out successful careers as a radio broadcaster and Hollywood star before entering the world of public service at the age of fifty-three. But politics was a lifelong passion for Reagan, and by the time he launched his political career in the mid-sixties, he had developed a clear vision of what was needed to revitalize America and to restore the country?s confidence. Both as the governor of California and as the president of the United States, Reagan?s unparalleled ability to communicate his vision to millions of Americans and to maintain a keen focus on the goals of his administration have been described as leadership at its best. The Wit and Wisdom of Ronald Reagan gathers together hundreds of quotations from Reagan?s speeches, books, and other writings that reveal his philosophies, thoughts, and musings on the areas of most importance to him. In these selections, Reagan: shares his optimism about the future of the country and the still-attainable American Dream speaks passionately about the freedom, equality, and justice that are central to the heritage of the United States expresses his deeply-held views about the appropriate role of government in the lives of Americans offers insight into the necessity and means of achieving lasting peace In some of the more personal selections Reagan recalls his childhood and the lessons he learned from his parents; his love and devotion to his wife Nancy and his four children; and how his religious beliefs sustained him through life?s challenges. Other pieces reveal Reagan?s characteristic humor?including some of his favorite anecdotes, together with the witty remarks and one-liners for which he is well known. Complete with a selection of quotations from world leaders and historians who share their insights about Reagan and his enduring legacy, The Wit and Wisdom of Ronald Reagan is a powerful collection that?s sure to inspire Americans and help to restore our faith in a brighter tomorrow.
