Republican Convention Lines

Some lines I liked from the Republican National Convention:

"A government that gives you everything is the same government that can take everything away from you."
-- though Huckabee attributed it to Abraham Lincoln, it was actually Gerald Ford

"Don't confuse enthusiasm for capability."

"Change is not a destination just as hope is not a strategy."
-- Rudy Giuliani

...and one that's not from the convention, but that I was reminded of during Palin's speech, since she had used it earlier:

"A ship in harbor is safe. But that's not why the ship was built."
-- John A. Shedd (paraphrased)
