These terrific quotes were culled from the recent September tribute to Paul Weyrich:

"In the beginning ... there was Paul Weyrich.  Forty-two years in Washington, leading the conservative movement.  Not just talking ... leading." - Rush Limbaugh

"The last forty years of Washington politics is, in a sense, a series of footnotes to Paul Weyrich" - George F. Will

"No single person -- other than Ronald Reagan -- has done more to create the modern conservative movement than Paul Weyrich ... I'm not sure there could have been a 'Contract with America' without Paul Weyrich's leadership." - Newt Gingrich

"Paul Weyrich is the man a generation of Washington conservatives wanted to be when they grew up." - Tom DeLay

"If there were a Mount Rushmore for conservative leaders, Paul's face would have to be on it." - Morton Blackwell
