Ronald Reagan Quotes

"They say that the United States has had its day in the sun, that our nation has passed its zenith. They expect you to tell your children that the American people no longer have the will to cope with their problems, that the future will be one of sacrifice and few opportunities. My fellow citizens, I utterly reject that view."
- Ronald Reagan in his acceptance speech for the Republican nomination for president on July 17, 1980.
