Tony Snow (1955 - 2008)

Rest With God

"To have faith is to believe in truth, believe that truth confers special power on those lucky enough to get a little insight, and to know in our hearts that all these things come from God, which is why we should never get too cocky about our successes."

"Many people don't give a rip about politics and know as much about public affairs as they know about the topography of Pluto."

"Every one of our greatest national treasures, our liberty, enterprise, vitality, wealth, military power, global authority, flow from a surprising source: our ability to give thanks."

"It serves notice that President Bush is serious about promoting freedom, because free societies are a lot more peaceable than dictatorships and monarchies."

"Millions of Americans annually commit themselves to such good works, and no country on earth comes close to matching our record."

"Sometimes, political campaigns make decent people act and talk like perfect buffoons."

"The business of peace requires more than showing up with paint brushes, foodstuffs and an oil pipeline or two."

"We can't afford blindness anymore. There are tens of thousands of thugs who loathe liberty and love death, and want to annihilate Western civilization."

"The real sin with Social Security is that it's a long-term rip-off and a short-term scam."

"In many cases, a bout with sickness stretches your soul, opens your eyes, and introduces you to a world of unimagined grandeur, possibility and joy."

"We've got to rebuild human hearts - and persuade people that hope isn't just possible, but essential."
