    From one of my favourites, Abe Lincoln:
    America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
    Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?
    "He's gone crazy," "You have to snap out of it," "Take your meds," or, "Don't be such a downer" serve only to mock, belittle, and make light of mental illness. Such phrases only continue the negative stigma and keep those who suffer from getting help. If these phrases, or phrases like them, are part of your at-hand vocabulary, you are part of the problem. #STOPtheStigma

    Mr. O had a quality quip at either the 2010 or 2011 Correspondent's Dinner (I forget which year):

    "What a week. As some of you heard the state of Hawaii released my official long-form birth certificate. Hopefully, this puts all doubts to rest. But just in case there are any lingering questions, tonight I'm prepared to go a step further. Tonight, for the first time, I am releasing my official birth video.'' [The screens plays the scene from Disney's The Lion King when Mufasa, atop a cliff, lifts Simba up as the other animals in the savannah look on].

    After the video played, he said this:

    "I want to make clear to the Fox News table that was a joke. That was not my real birth video. That was a children's cartoon. Call Disney if you don't believe me, they have the original long-form version.''


    Funny stuff.


    Reagan had some funny ones too:

    ''Thomas Jefferson once said, 'We should never judge a president by his age, only by his works.' And ever since he told me that, I stopped worrying.''

    ''Recession is when your neighbor loses his job. Depression is when you lose yours. And recovery is when Jimmy Carter loses his.''

    That Reagan one is good.

    I can't believe I didn't put in my favourite Licoln quote. Possibly my favourite quote of all time:
    People who like this sort of thing will find this the sort of thing they like

    "Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem."
    Ronald Reagan, President of the United States c. 1985

    "You cannot exaggerate about the Marines. They are convinced to the point of arrogance, that they are the most ferocious fighters on earth- and the amusing thing about it is, that they are."
    Father Kevin Keaney
    1st Marine Division Chaplin

    I now have a new favourite quote. I can't stop laughing after reading this:

    "To me, 10- and 11-year-olds do bad things. They throw rocks through windows. They shoot BB guns at people's cars. They hit people with sticks; they set a cat on fire. Those are things that children do..."
    -Stevens County, WA Prosecuting Attorney Timothy Rasmussen

    Your kid hit people with stick and set the cat on fire? Relax! That's just what kids do.
