Gerald R. Ford

Quotes in honor of the passing of our 38th President:

I have had a lot of adversaries in my political life, but no enemies that I can

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.

It's the quality of the ordinary,
the straight, the square, that accounts for the great stability and success of
our nation. It's a quality to be proud of. But it's a quality that many people
seem to have neglected.

Truth is the glue that holds government
together. Compromise is the oil that makes governments go.

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.
