“When they look at you, they see what they want to be. When they look at me, they see what they are.”
“- Young Student: You say you want to end the war, so why don't you?
- Richard M. Nixon: Change always comes slowly. I pulled out more than half the troops. I'm trying to cut the military budget for the first time in 30 years. I want a volunteer army. But it's also a question of American credibility, our position in the world.”
“People vote not out of love, but fear.”
“John, sooner or later - sooner, I think - you're gonna learn a lesson that's been learned by everyone who's ever gotten close to Richard Nixon. That he's the darkness reaching out for the darkness. And eventually, it's either you or him. Your grave's already been dug, John.”
“- Pat Nixon: I just wish you knew how much I love you, that's all. It took me a long time to fall in love with you, Dick. But I did. And it doesn't make you happy. You want them to love you...

“- Richard M. Nixon: This is about me. Why can't you understand that, you of all people? It's not the war - It's Nixon! They want to destroy Nixon! And if I expose myself even the slightest bit they'll tear my insides out. Do you want that? Do you want to see that, buddy? It's not pretty.
- Pat Nixon: Sometimes I think that's what you want.”
“He had chaos and civil war and hatred between the races. Sometimes I go to the Lincoln room at the White House and just pray. But you know, liberals act like idealism belongs to them. That's not true. My family went Republican because Lincoln freed the slaves. My grandmother was an abolitionist, those Quakers who founded Whittier, my hometown......” (continue)(continue reading)
“I'd like to offer my condolences to those families. But Nixon can't.”
“It's the President's personal property. I will never give up my tapes to a bunch of Kennedy-loving Harvard Democrat cocksuckers.”
“- Richard M. Nixon: I'm not Jack Kennedy.
- Pat Nixon: No, you're not. So stop comparing yourself to him. You have no reason to. You have everything you ever wanted. You've earned it. Why can't you just enjoy it?”
“Can you imagine what this man would be like had anyone ever loved him?”
“They can't impeach me for bombing Cambodia. The president can bomb anybody he likes.”
“I miss making love to the people. I miss entering a room. I miss the pure acting of it, John. I gotta get back in the arena.”
“- Young Student: You can't stop it, can you? Even if you wanted to. Because it's not you, it's the system. The system won't let you stop it.
- Richard M. Nixon: There's... there's more at stake here than what you want, or what I want.
- Young Student: Then what's the point? What's the point of being President? You're powerless!”
“Is peace all you are interested in? The real war is in us. History is a symptom of our disease.”
