Richard Milhous Nixon – amerykański polityk, 37. prezydent Stanów Zjednoczonych, wcześniej 36. wiceprezydent. Był jedynym, jak dotąd prezydentem, który ustąpił ze stanowiska przed końcem kadencji.

Nixon był jedną z bardziej kontrowersyjnych postaci amerykańskiej sceny politycznej. Zapoczątkował politykę „odprężenia” w stosunkach Wschód-Zachód. W opinii wielu ekspertów pozwoliło to zebrać się osłabionym Stanom Zjednoczonym i zachwiać potęgą bloku wschodniego, bez czego jego późniejszy upadek, jeżeli nie niemożliwy, byłby znacznie trudniejszy i bardziej niebezpieczny.

Nixon ponosi jednak również bezpośrednią odpowiedzialność za aferę Watergate, która przez długi czas paraliżowała amerykańskie życie publiczne i wyrządziła mu ogromne szkody. To było bezpośrednim powodem ustąpienia Nixona z fotela prezydenta.

Historycy do dziś spierają się w ocenie tej postaci.

„In a civilized nation no man can excuse his crime against the person or property of another by claiming that he, too, has been a victim of injustice. To tolerate that is to invite anarchy“

— Richard Nixon
Context: There can be no right to revolt in this society; no right to demonstrate outside the law, and, in Lincoln's words, 'no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law'. In a civilized nation no man can excuse his crime against the person or property of another by claiming that he, too, has been a victim of injustice. To tolerate that is to invite anarchy.

„The greatest honor history can bestow is the title of peacemaker.“

— Richard Nixon
Context: What kind of nation we will be, what kind of world we will live in, whether we shape the future in the image of our hopes, is ours to determine by our actions and our choices. The greatest honor history can bestow is the title of peacemaker. This honor now beckons America — the chance to help lead the world at last out of the valley of turmoil, and onto that high ground of peace that man has dreamed of since the dawn of civilization. If we succeed, generations to come will say of us now living that we mastered our moment, that we helped make the world safe for mankind. This is our summons to greatness. "The greatest honor history can bestow is the title of peacemaker" was later used as Nixon's epitaph.

„The important thing in our process, however, is to play the game,“

— Richard Nixon
Context: The important thing in our process, however, is to play the game, and in the great game of life, and particularly the game of politics, what is important is that on either side more Americans voted this year than ever before, and the fact that you won or you lost must not keep you from keeping in the great game of politics in the years ahead, because the better competition we have between the two parties, between the two men running for office, whatever office that may be, means that we get the better people and the better programs for our country.

„And our little girl — Tricia, the 6-year old — named it Checkers. And you know, the kids, like all kids, love the dog and I just want to say this right now, that regardless of what they say about it, we're gonna keep it.“

— Richard Nixon
Context: p>That's what we have and that's what we owe. It isn't very much but Pat and I have the satisfaction that every dime that we've got is honestly ours. I should say this — that Pat doesn't have a mink coat. But she does have a respectable Republican cloth coat. And I always tell her that she'd look good in anything.One other thing I probably should tell you because if we don't they'll probably be saying this about me too, we did get something — a gift — after the election. A man down in Texas heard Pat on the radio mention the fact that our two youngsters would like to have a dog. And, believe it or not, the day before we left on this campaign trip we got a message from Union Station in Baltimore saying they had a package for us. We went down to get it. You know what it was. It was a little cocker spaniel dog in a crate that he'd sent all the way from Texas. Black and white spotted. And our little girl — Tricia, the 6-year old — named it Checkers. And you know, the kids, like all kids, love the dog and I just want to say this right now, that regardless of what they say about it, we're gonna keep it.</p
