Speaking on Reagan’s sense of humor
"I was sitting around the set with all these people and we were listening to Ronnie, quite absorbed. I said, 'Ron, have you ever considered some day becoming president?'
"He said, 'President of what?'
" 'President of the United States,' I said.
"And he said, 'What's the matter? Don't you like my acting either?' "
Speaking of Reagan the comforter
Whether it was the families of the crew of the Challenger shuttle or the USS Stark or the Marines killed in Beirut, we will never forget those images of the president and first lady embracing them and embracing us during times of sorrow."
Speaking of Reagan’s resolve
I cannot imagine how any diplomat, or any dramatist, could improve on his words to Mikhail Gorbachev at the Geneva summit:
'Let me tell you why it is we distrust you.' Those words are candid and tough and they cannot have been easy to hear. But they are also a clear invitation to a new beginning and a new relationship that would be rooted in trust.”
Speaking of Reagan’s open love for his wife
When their car drove in a moment later, out stepped Nancy and Mila -- looking like a million bucks. As they headed towards us, President Reagan beamed, threw his arm around my shoulder and said with a grin, "You know, Brian, for two Irishmen, we sure married up!"
