January 11, 1989 Ronald Reagan Farewell Address to the Nation. "For me there was a fork in the river, and it was right in the middle of my life. I never meant to go into politics. It wasn't my intention when I was young. But I was raised to believe you had to pay your way for the blessings bestowed on you. I was happy with my career in the entertainment world, but I ultimately went into politics because I wanted to protect something precious."

January 11, 1989 Ronald Reagan Farewell Address to the Nation. "But back in the 1960's, when I began, it seemed to me that we'd begun reversing the order of things -- that through more and more rules and regulations and confiscatory taxes, the government was taking more of our money, more of our options, and more of our freedom. I went into politics in part to put up my hand and say, ``Stop.'' I was a citizen politician, and it seemed the right thing for a citizen to do."

August 15, 1988 Ronald Reagan Remarks at the Republican National Convention in New Orleans, Louisiana. "... started out in the other party. But 40 years ago, I cast my last vote as a Democrat. It was a party in which Franklin Delano Roosevelt promised the return of power to the States. It was a party where Harry Truman committed a strong and resolute America to preserving freedom. F.D.R. had run on a platform of eliminating useless boards and commissions and returning autonomy and authority to local governments and to the States. That party changed, and it will never be the same. They left me; I didn't leave them."

December 12, 1986 Ronald Reagan Remarks at a White House Briefing for the American Legislative Exchange Council. "In fact, on the way over here, I was thinking back to my first campaign in California. Jack Warner of Warner Brothers, where I had been under contract for a number of years, heard that I was running for Governor. I understood that he said: 'No, no. Jimmy Stewart for Governor; Ronald Reagan for best friend!' [Laughter] More than once during that campaign I was reminded of a remark, also, that was made by his older brother, Harry Warner - and that was back when talking pictures first started to come in, in the twenties. And Harry Warner said, 'Who the heck wants to hear actors talk?'" [Laughter]

May 31, 1988. Ronald Reagan Remarks at a Luncheon Hosted by Artists and Cultural Leaders in Moscow. "In looking back, I believe that acting did help prepare me for the work I do now.

August 15, 1988 Ronald Reagan Remarks at the Republican National Convention in New Orleans, Louisiana. "... I'm grateful to God for blessing me with a good life and a long one. But when I pack up my bags in Washington, don't expect me to be happy to hear all this talk about the twilight of my life. Twilight? Twilight? Not in America. Here, it's a sunrise every day -- fresh new opportunities, dreams to build. Twilight? That's not possible, because I confess there are times when I feel like I'm still little Dutch Reagan racing my brother down the hill to the swimming hole under the railroad bridge over the Rock River. You see, there's no sweeter day than each new one, because here in our country it means something wonderful can happen to you. And something wonderful happened to me. We lit a prairie fire a few years back. Those flames were fed by passionate ideas and convictions, and we were determined to make them run all -- burn, I should say, all across America. And what times we've had! Together we've fought for causes we love. But we can never let the fire go out or quit the fight, because the battle is never over. Our freedom must be defended over and over again -- and then again. There's still a lot of brush to clear out at the ranch, fences that need repair, and horses to ride. But I want you to know that if the fires ever dim, I'll leave my phone number and address behind just in case you need a foot soldier." Diss to montage: MS Ronald and NANCY REAGAN riding in limo, waving to crowd after 1981 Inauguration; TLS Congress standing and applauding, CU Reagan humbly smiling; MSs Reagan at meetings, tossing football, blowing out candles, riding horses with Nancy, walking and talking with GEORGE BUSH outside the White House, saluting WWII veterans at Normandy, shaking the hand of MIKHAIL GORBACHEV, welcoming (separately) MARGARET THATCHER and MOTHER TERESA (of Calcutta) to the White House; tTLS crowds standing atop the Berlin Wall after its fall; MSs Reagan saluting American military personnel; WLS delegates on convention floor. "Twilight, you say? Listen to H.G. Wells. H.G. Wells says: ``The past is but the beginning of a beginning, and all that is and has been is but the twilight of the dawn.'' Well, that's a new day - our sunlit new day - to keep alive the fire so that when we look back at the time of choosing, we can say that we did all that could be done - never less." MSs Reagan being sworn in, '81 & '85.
