A Quote by Richard Milhouse Nixon on america, belief, dreams, faith, future, generations, hope, idealism, investment, learning, life, love, men, men and women, motivation, nations, people, and women

Nothing matters more to the future of this Nation than insuring that our young men and women learn to believe in themselves and believe in their dreams, and that they develop this capacity-that you develop this capacity, so that you keep it all of your lives.... I believe one of America's most priceless assets is the idealism which motivates the young people of America. My generation has invested all that it has, not only its love but its hope and faith, in yours.

A Quote by Richard Milhouse Nixon on good, greatness, and mountains

The greatness comes not when things go always good for you. But the greatness comes when you're really tested, when you take some knocks, some disappointments, when sadness comes. Because only if you've been in the deepest valley can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain.
