Selected Quotes of Ronald Reagan

"It’s probably true that hard work never killed anyone – but why take the chance? "
   --Ronald Reagan

"I saw them; there is nothing beautiful about them, just that they are a little higher than the others. "
   --Ronald Reagan, Speaking of Redwoods on 15 March 1967

"I think, too, that we’ve got to recognize that where the preservation of a natural resource like the redwoods is concerned, that there is a common sense limit. I mean, if you’ve looked at a hundred thousand acres or so of trees — you know, a tree is a tree, how many more do you need to look at? "
   --Ronald Reagan, Candidate (not yet governor) Ronald Reagan, while speaking before the Western Wood Products Association in San Francisco on 12 March 1966. This is often misquoted as "If you've seen one Redwood you've seen them all"
