Ronald Reagan's "Notecards" is a fascinating window into the mind of the fortieth president and the writers and thinkers whom he turned to for advice, inspiration, humour, and hope. Collected by the Ronald Reagan Foundation, the book includes both Reagan's own original writing that honors a lifetime of work in the arts and politics, and includes his favorite quotations, proverbs, and excerpts from speeches, poetry, and literature. Reagan sought wisdom from a wide-ranging set of political figures, philosophers, novelists, and poets, including Abraham Lincoln, Daniel Webster, John F. Kennedy, and Thomas Jefferson, as well as Mahatma Ghandi, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Mark Twain, and Thomas Wolfe. While the number 1 "New York Times" bestselling "Reagan Diaries" detailed daily life inside the oval office, "Notecards" encapsulates a lifetime of reflections on work, marriage, and family in classic one liners such as, 'Flattery is what makes husbands out of bachelors,' and 'Money may not buy friends but it will help you to stay in contact with your children.'
Reagan's own writing-his jokes, aphorisms, and insights into politics and life-are often surprising and reveal a view of the president that has rarely been seen before. Historic, illuminating, and deeply captivating, "Notecards" is a remarkable collection of the thoughts of one of our most beloved presidents.
