Ronnie and Margaret were political soul mates, committed to freedom and resolved to end Communism.”

Macey France- “Feminism is the ability to choose what you want to do.”

Shannon Montgomery Grady- “You learn something out of everything, and you come to realize more than ever that we’re all here for a certain space of time, and, and then it’s going to be over, and you better make this count.”

Beth Baumann– “To my young friends out there: Life can be great, but not when you can’t see it. So, open your eyes to life: to see it in the vivid colors that God gave us as a precious gift to His children, to enjoy life to the fullest, and to make it count. Say yes to your life.”

Ann-Marie Murrell:  (on her marriage to Ronald Reagan) “If either of us left the room, we both felt lonely.  People don’t always believe this, but it’s true.  Filling the loneliness, completing each other–that’s what it still meant for us to be husband and wife.”
