No comments

John Sidney McCain III was an American politician and military officer who served as a United States Senator from Arizona from January 1987 until his death in August 2018.

“Nothing in life is more liberating than to fight for a cause larger than yourself, something that encompasses you but is not defined by your existence alone.”

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but the capacity to act despite our fears.”

“Glory belongs to the act of being constant to something greater than yourself, to a cause, to your principles, to the people on whom you rely and who rely on you”

“It is your character, and your character alone, that will make your life happy or unhappy.”

“Stop listening to the bombastic loudmouths on the radio and television and the Internet. To hell with them. They don’t want anything done for the public good. Our incapacity is their livelihood”

“Our shared values define us more than our differences. And acknowledging those shared values can see us through our challenges today if we have the wisdom to trust in them again.”

“We cannot forever hide the truth about ourselves, from ourselves.”

“I guess my view is I believe less governance is best governance and that government should not do what the free enterprise and private enterprise and individual entrepreneurship and the states can do.”

“When you’re not winning, you’re losing.”

“In prison, I fell in love with my country. I had loved her before then, but like most young people, my affection was little more than a simple appreciation for the comforts and privileges most Americans enjoyed and took for granted. It wasn’t until I had lost America for a time that I realized how much I loved her. ”
