1 Known for occasional stumbles and falls in public while in office


1 I can still remember the first time I ever heard Hubert Humphrey speak. He was in the second hour of a five-minute talk.
2 The acceptance of a pardon, according to the legal authorities - and we have checked them out very carefully - does indicate that by the acceptance, the person who has accepted it does, in effect, admit guilt.
3 [to the House Judiciary Committee on his pardoning of former President Richard Nixon] The purpose was to change our national focus. I wanted to do all I could to shift our attentions from the pursuit of a fallen president to the pursuit of the urgent needs of a rising nation..to punish a former President who already is condemned to suffer long and deeply in the shame and disgrace brought upon the office he held. Surely we are not a revengeful people.
4 I don't think, if I had been president, on the basis of the facts as I saw them publicly, I don't think I would have ordered the Iraq war. I would have maximized our effort through sanctions, through restrictions, whatever, to find another answer. Rumsfeld and Cheney and the president made a big mistake in justifying going into the war in Iraq. They put the emphasis on weapons of mass destruction. And now, I've never publicly said I thought they made a mistake, but I felt very strongly it was an error in how they should justify what they were going to do. (2005)
5 I am a Ford, not a Lincoln.
6 A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from everything you have.
7 I know that you have not elected me as President with your votes, but I ask that you confirm me with your prayers.
