" Could I share a personal thought with you tonight, because tonight's kind of special to me. It's the last time, of course, that I will address you under these same circumstances. I hope you'll invite me back to future conventions. Nancy and I will be forever grateful for the honor you've done us, for the opportunity to serve, and for your friendship and trust"

We need it because we are imperfect, and our government needs the church, because only those humble enough to admit theyre sinners can bring to democracy the tolerance it requires in order to survive."

"Without God, there is no virtue, because theres no prompting of the conscience. Without God, were mired in the material, that flat world that tells us only what the senses perceive. Without God, there is a coarsening of the society. And without God, democracy will not and cannot long endure. If we ever forget that were one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."
