Competition is not only the basis of protection to the consumer, but is the incentive to progress.
HERBERT HOOVER, State of the Union Address, December 2, 1930
My conception of America is a land where men and women may walk in ordered freedom in the independent conduct of their occupations; where they may enjoy the advantages of wealth, not concentrated in the hands of the few but spread through the lives of all; where they build and safeguard their homes, and give to their children the fullest advantages and opportunities of American life; where every man shall be respected in the faith that his conscience and his heart direct him to follow; where a contented and happy people, secure in their liberties, free from poverty and fear, shall have the leisure and impulse to seek a fuller life.
HERBERT HOOVER, speech, Oct. 22, 1928
Blessed are the young for they shall inherit the national debt.

Fishing is much more than fish…. It is the great occasion when we may return to the fine simplicity of our forefathers.
HERBERT HOOVER, New York Times, Aug. 9, 1964
