A Quote by George Herbert Walker Bush on experience and life

I think the major event that shaped my life was being a Naval aviator. I got my commission and wings at 18 years old, and then I went into combat at 19. And I think, as I look back on it, that whole experience probably shaped my life more than any incident, or any event.

A Quote by George Herbert Walker Bush on achievement

And so, as they climb the ladder of achievement, I'd simply say, remember what Barbara Bush told those girls at Wellesley: "What happens in your house is more important than what happens in the White House."

A Quote by George Herbert Walker Bush on advice, faith, family, friendship, life, peace, people, politics, trying, and world

If I were to give advice to young people, high-achieving young people for example, I'd have to say, don't neglect your family. Politics is important, sitting at the head table is glamorous. Traveling around the world, trying to do something for world peace was wonderful. But . . . Family and friends and faith are what are really matters in life. And I know that. I see it so clearly now.

A Quote by George Herbert Walker Bush on faith, family, friendship, justice, presidency, and wonder

It's family, and it's faith, and it's friends, and it's not the glamour of the Presidency, or the wonder of going to receive the Nobel Prize. All those are important, of course. But maybe it's just that I'm 71 years old now. It's family, and it's faith, and it's friends. I would tell them that. Don't forget that. In your brilliance, don't turn your back on your friends. Don't think you're entitled to something, you're smarter than the next guy.

A Quote by George Herbert Walker Bush on citizenship, god, and nations

I don't know that atheists should be considered citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under God.

A Quote by George Herbert Walker Bush on control, home, investment, life, people, risk, and work

People must be free to work, to save, to own their own home, to take risks, to invest in each other and, in essence, to control their own lives.
