I thought Colin Powell did a fine job as secretary of state. George W Bush

I think the key anecdote in the book is when Colin [Powell] and I were discussing Iraq. Colin was upstairs in the Treaty Room, in the residence. And he talks about his concerns about the use of military in Iraq. And I said I felt the same concerns, but it might be that we have to use it. In which case, he said, "I support you." George W Bush

This is a very difficult assignment for the United States, to hang in there and help this young democracy survive. George W Bush

Just like we did in Japan, in South Korea. Just like is happening in Iraq. Laura [Bush] and I feel very strongly that if the United States were to leave. George W Bush

We think it is in our nation's interest that Afghan women - or any women around the world - not suffer. George W Bush

[Strong marriage] starts with being married to a remarkable person. And I am. I jokingly say that I stood up in front of a crowd once and said, "Laura's the greatest first lady ever," and then realized my mother was in the audience. George W Bush

I meant it when I said she was the greatest first lady ever. Because she viewed the presidency and being first lady as an opportunity to improve people's lives. It wasn't a burden. She put her heart and soul into the experience, just like I did. George W Bush

We had a shared experience. That makes a good marriage better. In many ways our marriage is great because she has made it great. George W Bush

We spend less time with each other now than we did during the presidency. When you're president, you're usually out and back in the same day - at least I was.

My point is that she's [Laura Bush] busy and I'm busy, which makes our marriage not only interesting but exciting. George W Bush

It's exciting for me to see [Laura Bush] busy and out there enjoying what she's doing. But we always make time to be with each other as well. George W Bush

I'm excited for my little girls. When they left the nest, I was excited because they were winging their way into life. George W Bush

I think I'm the only president other than John Kennedy who had both parents alive during the presidency. George W Bush

First of all, you never retire. At least I don't retire. George W Bush

My advice to seniors - and I consider myself one - is to first and foremost take care of your body. Secondly, find something where you could say, "I'm helping somebody else." And it may be just helping raise a grandkid. Or teaching a child to read - one child to read. George W Bush

Having purpose. I had purpose during my presidency, and I've got purpose after my presidency. George W Bush

If I look back to when I was 20 and somebody said you'd be president, I would have said no way. George W Bush

I ended up being the 43rd president of the United States. It was an awesome experience, and I'm glad I did it. George W Bush

I'm comfortable with how I lived my life as the president. George W Bush

I will reach out to others and explain why I make the decisions I make. George W Bush

I made friends during my presidency. George W Bush

One thing you had to learn [after the presidency] was that you no longer had the sense of responsibility that became ingrained in your system. George W Bush

The interesting thing about golf is that the presidency requires focus and discipline, and golf requires focus and discipline. It was a way to make sure that parts of my life were focused and disciplined. George W Bush

When you're writing about something that happened, it helps you transition to the present. George W Bush

When you're writing about something that happened, it helps you transition to the present. Ironically enough, by focusing on your presidency, it helps you realize that you're no longer the president. By reliving moments, it helps you stay focused on the moment. George W Bush

Denying Al Qaeda safe haven was the right decision. George W Bush

Using tax payers' money to provide liquidity to Wall Street so that the country wouldn't head into a depression was the right decision, in my judgment. George W Bush

There were tactical decisions that I wish I could have done differently: mission accomplished, not revealing my drunken driving charge prior to my run for the presidency, flying over New Orleans on Katrina and the pictures being released and people saying, "he's aloof and doesn't really care." George W Bush

There are a lot of tactical decisions that, if I could have done them over, I would have. George W Bush

My hope was that by saying clearly to Saddam Hussein, "we're going to enforce UN Resolutions," that he would make the decision to leave peaceably and at least allow for inspectors to come into his country, and if he chose not to, there would be a military option. I want people to understand that the military was my last option.
