American 43rd president of U.S.
(1946 - )

America has entered a great struggle that tests our strength, and even more our resolve. Our nation is patient and steadfast. We continue to pursue the terrorists in cities and camps and caves across the earth. We are joined by a great coalition of nations to rid the world of terror. And we will not allow any terrorist or tyrant to threaten civilization with weapons of mass murder. Now and in the future, Americans will live as free people, not in fear, and never at the mercy of any foreign plot or power.
      - in a speech at Ellis Island, New York, New York, on Sep. 11, 2002
        [Terrorism : War]

I can hear you. The rest of the world hears you. And the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon.
      - to rescue workers at the destruction of New York's World Trade Center

I donít think you should support the death penalty to seek revenge. I donít think thatís right. I think the reason to support the death penalty is because it saves other peopleís lives.
      - [Capital Punishment]

I kind of like to look at the ranch on Google; reminds me of where I want to be sometimes.
      - [Homesickness : Internet]

I know human beings and fish can co-exist peacefully.
      - [Fish]

. . . if you're interested in avoiding World War III, it seems like you ought to be interested in preventing them from having the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon.
      - October 17, 2007 [War]

In the long run, the right answer to unemployment is to create more jobs.
      - in a radio address by the president to the nation

Our nation was horrified, but it's not going to be terrorized.
      - on the destruction of New York's World Trade Center

Our response involves far more than instant retaliation and isolated strikes. Americans should not expect one battle, but a lengthy campaign, unlike any other we have ever seen. It may include dramatic strikes, visible on TV, and covert operations, secret even in success. We will starve terrorists of funding, turn them one against another, drive them from place to place, until there is no refuge or no rest. And we will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists. From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as a hostile regime.
      - in a speech before the U.S. Congress on Sep. 20, 2001, on the destruction of New York's World Trade Center
        [Terrorism : War]

States like these, and their terrorist allies, constitute an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world. By seeking weapons of mass destruction, these regimes pose a grave and growing danger. They could provide these arms to terrorists, giving them the means to match their hatred. They could attack our allies or attempt to blackmail the United States. In any of these cases, the price of indifference would be catastrophic.
      - in his State of the Union address
        [Evil : Terrorism]

The course of this conflict is not known, yet its outcome is certain. Freedom and fear, justice and cruelty, have always been at war, and we know that God is not neutral between them.
      - in a speech before the U.S. Congress on Sep. 20, 2001, on the destruction of New York's World Trade Center

The same creator who names the stars also knows the names of the seven souls we mourn today. The crew of the shuttle Columbia did not return safely to Earth, but we can pray they all are safely home.
      - on the 2003 destruction of the space shuttle Columbia

This act will not stand. We will find those who did it. We will smoke them out of their holes. We'll get them running and bring them to justice.
      - on the destruction of New York's World Trade Center

This nation is peaceful, but fierce when stirred to anger.
      - on the destruction of New York's World trade Center

Those who make war against the United States have chosen their own destruction.
      - on the destruction of New York's World Trade Center

We are not deceived by their pretenses to piety. We have seen their kind before. They are the heirs of all the murderous ideologies of the 20th century. By sacrificing human life to serve their radical visions--by abandoning every value except the will to power--they follow in the path of fascism, and Nazism, and totalitarianism. And they will follow that path all the way, to where it ends: in history's unmarked grave of discarded lies.
      - in a speech before the U.S. Congress on Sep. 20, 2001, on the destruction of New York's World Trade Center

We'll succeed unless we quit.
      - [Success]

What happened to our nation on a September day set in motion the first great struggle of a new century. The enemies who struck us are determined and they are resourceful. They will not be stopped by a sense of decency or a hint of conscience--but they will be stopped.
      - in a speech at Washington, D.C., on Sep. 11, 2002
