"There's a couple things you don't talk about in life, and that's race, religion and politics. I try to make sure I don't talk about politics at all."
"Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future."Robert Griffin III on John F. Kennedy
"Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress but I repeat myself."Robert Griffin III on Mark Twain
"One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors."Robert Griffin III on Plato
"If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years there'd be a shortage of sand."Robert Griffin III on Milton Friedman
"It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything."Robert Griffin III on Joseph Stalin
"Man, I love the 'Lord of the Rings' movies. Some people would say I'm weird for liking those types of movies, but they are so cool."
"I'm a military kid, both parents in the military - Mom did 12 years, Dad did 21, served in two wars. So discipline is something that was huge."
"One thing my dad always told me, was he would make sure I always had what he didn't have. He couldn't play basketball because he didn't have tennis shoes - so I had five pairs of tennis shoes."
"You always give credit where credit is due - to high school coaches, college coaches - but my dad, the foundation that he built with me, is where all of this came from. The speed, the determination, the mindset, just the natural belief that you can do anything you put your mind to, it all comes from my dad."
"Whoever I can go out every week and motivate to do better and to try to go after their dreams, I'm up for that."
