North Quotations

I'm going to North Pole to help out Santa this year.
Jimmy Fallon

We should declare war on North Vietnam. We could pave the whole country and put parking strips on it, and still be home by Christmas.
Ronald Reagan

I grew up playing hockey and baseball, so I wish I had time to get back into it, but living in L.A. and North Carolina, you have to take advantage of the golf. You find yourself at charity golf events or going to the Emmys and meeting Kevin Costner. You don't get to do as much fishing or hockey as you used to, but there are certainly other payoffs.
Diego Klattenhoff

My favorite memories growing up in North Carolina were hunting and fishing with my father and brothers. There, I developed a deep appreciation for protecting land and waterways. There, I learned outdoorsmanship.
Louis Bacon

Our purpose in Vietnam is to prevent the success of aggression. It is not conquest, it is not empire, it is not foreign bases, it is not domination. It is, simply put, just to prevent the forceful conquest of South Vietnam by North Vietnam.
Lyndon B. Johnson
