20th Century's Greatest President

Today is the 2nd anniversary of the death of Ronald Wilson Reagan. Here is a quote that you all will appreciate.


"[Ronald Reagan] quoted Thomas Merton, 'We must be content to live without watching ourselves live, work without expecting immediate reward, love without instantaneous satisfaction, exist without special recognition.' The president then wrote, 'In today's modern world many would challenge Merton's statement and ask why we must be content to live this way.' He answered that question with some of the best advice I've ever received: 'Because our nation was built by men who dedicated their lives to building our country for the sake of their children and countrymen, without taking the time to worry about receiving recognition for their efforts'." —Oliver North
