10 quotes that evoke the best of American values:
“We cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home.”
“No one can terrorize a whole nation, unless we are all his accomplices.”
“A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.”
“Our major obligation is not to mistake slogans for solutions.”
“To be persuasive, we must be believable. To be believable, we must be credible. To be credible, we must be truthful.”

“The obscure we see eventually. The completely obvious, it seems, takes longer.”
“Anyone who isn’t confused really doesn’t understand the situation.”
“We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. When the loyal opposition dies, I think the soul of America dies with it.”
