Gerald Ford Quotes on Watergate

The political lesson of Watergate is this: Never again must America allow an arrogant, elite guard of political adolescents to by-pass the regular party organization and dictate the terms of a national election.

Gerald Ford Quotes on War

Mr. President, putting it bluntly, wouldn’t we just be continuing a bloodbath that already exists in Cambodia if we voted the 222 million in aid?


A strong defense is the surest way to peace. Strength makes detente attainable. Weakness invites war, as my generation – my generation – knows from four very bitter experiences. Just as America’s will for peace is second to none, so will America’s strength be second to none. We cannot rely on the forbearance of others to protect this Nation. The power and diversity of the Armed Forces, active Guard and Reserve, the resolve of our fellow citizens, the flexibility in our command to navigate international waters that remain troubled are all essential to our security.


Speaker, with mixed emotions we mark the 50th anniversary of the Turkish genocide of the Armenian people. In taking notice of the shocking events in 1915, we observe this anniversary with sorrow in recalling the massacres of Armenians and with pride in saluting those brave patriots who survived to fight on the side of freedom during World War I.


All of us who served in one war or another know very well that all wars are the glory and the agony of the young.

Gerald Ford Quotes on Nightmares

My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over. Our Constitution works; our great Republic is a government of laws and not of men. Here the people rule. But there is a higher Power, by whatever name we honor Him, who ordains not only righteousness but love, not only justice but mercy.


My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over.


I believe that truth is the glue that holds government together, not only our Government but civilization itself. That bond, though strained, is unbroken at home and abroad. In all my public and private acts as your President, I expect to follow my instincts of openness and candor with full confidence that honesty is always the best policy in the end. My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over.

Inspiration Quotes by Gerald Ford

Our Nation has a diverse and extremely rich cultural heritage. It is a source of pride and strength to millions of Americans who look to the arts for inspiration, communication and the opportunity for creative self-expression.


I remember as a ranger the first time I stood alone on Inspiration Point over at Canyon Station looking out over this beautiful land. I thought to myself how lucky I was that my parents’ and grandparents’ generation had the vision and the determination to save it for us. Now it is our turn to make our own gift outright to those who will come after us, 15 years, 40 years, 100 years from now. I want to be as faithful to my grandchildren’s generation as Old Faithful has been to ours. What better way can we add a new dimension to our third century of freedom?


I love sports. Whenever I can, I always watch the Detroit Tigers on the radio.

Gerald Ford Quotes about democracy

In a political sense, there is one problem that currently underlies all of the others. That problem is making Government sufficiently responsive to the people. If we don’t make government responsive to the people, we don’t make it believable. And we must make government believable if we are to have a functioning democracy.


In a democracy, the public has a right to know not only what the government decides, but why and by what process.


Humor can help you to disagree without being disagreeable. The key in democracy is not necessarily that we agree, but that we participate…. Despite all the heavy problems- domestic and international- there is humor. Humor transcends partisanship.

Gerald Ford Quotes on Independence

We . . . declared our independence 200 years ago, and we are not about to lose it now to paper shufflers and computers.


We are bound together by the most powerful of all ties, our fervent love for freedom and independence, which knows no homeland but the human heart.


The Declaration [of Independence] was not a protest against government, but against the excess of government. It prescribed the proper role of government, to secure the rights of individuals and to effect their safety and happiness. In modern society, no individual can do this alone. So government is not a necessary evil but a necessary good.

Gerald Ford Quotes on Children

Sit down before facts as a little child, be prepared to give up every preconceived notion — or you shall learn nothing.


Music education opens doors that help children pass from school into the world around them – a world of work, culture, intellectual activity, and human involvement. The future of our nation depends on providing our children with a complete education that includes music.


Too often critics seem more intent on seeking new ways to alter Congress than to truly learn how it functions. They might well profit from the advice of Thomas Huxley, who said a century ago: Sit down before facts as a little child, be prepared to give up every preconceived notionor you shall learn nothing.


All my children have spoken for themselves since they first learned to speak, and not always with my advance approval, and I expect that to continue in the future.

Gerald Ford Quotes on Education

Music education opens doors that help children pass from school into the world around them – a world of work, culture, intellectual activity, and human involvement. The future of our nation depends on providing our children with a complete education that includes music.


I believe that prayer in public schools should be voluntary. It is difficult for me to see how religious exercises can be a requirement in public schools, given our Constitutional requirement of separation of church and state. I feel that the highly desirable goal of religious education must be principally the responsibility of church and home. I do not believe that public education should show any hostility toward religion, and neither should it inhibit voluntary participation, if it does not interfere with the educational process.


The future of our nation depends on providing our children with a complete education that includes music.

Gerald Ford Quotes about opportunity

I have always felt that the real purpose of government is to enhance the lives of people and that a leader can best do that by restraining government in most cases instead of enlarging it at every opportunity.


I think that sports, particularly football, gave me an opportunity to be out front, to be a leader, which helped me later on, when I got into politics.


Our Nation has a diverse and extremely rich cultural heritage. It is a source of pride and strength to millions of Americans who look to the arts for inspiration, communication and the opportunity for creative self-expression.


America’s leadership is essential. America’s resources are vast. America’s opportunities are unprecedented.

Gerald Ford Quotes on National Nightmare

My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over. Our Constitution works; our great Republic is a government of laws and not of men. Here the people rule. But there is a higher Power, by whatever name we honor Him, who ordains not only righteousness but love, not only justice but mercy.

Gerald Ford Quotes Government Big Enough

A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.

Gerald Ford Quotes on Pardon

I know I will go to hell, because I pardoned Richard Nixon.

Gerald Ford Quotes on Music

The future of our nation depends on providing our children with a complete education that includes music.


Music education opens doors that help children pass from school into the world around them – a world of work, culture, intellectual activity, and human involvement. The future of our nation depends on providing our children with a complete education that includes music.

Gerald Ford Quotes on Today

In the two centuries that have passed since 1776, millions upon millions of Americans have worked and taken up arms when necessary to make that dream a reality. We can be extremely proud of what they have accomplished. Today, we are the world’s oldest republic. We are at peace. Our Nation and our way of life endure. We are free.


A great nation cannot abandon its responsibilities. Responsibilities abandoned today return as more acute crises tomorrow.
