Dan Quayle quotes
Bearing babies irresponsibly is simply wrong. We must be unequivocal about this. It doesn't help matters when primetime TV has Murphy Brown — a character who supposedly epitomizes today's intelligent, highly paid, professional woman — mocking the importance of fathers, by bearing a child alone, and calling it just another "lifestyle choice."
Dan Quayle
The other day [the President] said, I know you've had some rough times, and I want to do something that will show the nation what faith that I have in you, in your maturity and sense of responsibility. Would you like a puppy?
Quayle Dan quotes
We understand the importance of having the bondage between the parent and the child.

Quayle Dan quotes
We are ready for any unforseen event that may or may not occur.
Dan Quayle
When you take the UNCF model that, what a waste it is to lose one's mind, or not to have a mind is being very wasteful, how true that is.
Dan Quayle quotes
Let me just tell you how thrilling it really is, and how, what a challenge it is, because in 1988 the question is whether we're going forward to tomorrow or whether we're going to go past to the back! … That's a Hoosierism. You've got to get used to that!
Dan Quayle
It's wonderful to be here in the great state of Chicago.
Quayle Dan
I don't think I could shoot a deer. Quayle, that's something else again.
