About this title


Former Secretary of Transportation, former Secretary of Labor, President of the American Red Cross, wife of co-campaigner Republican presidential nominee and icon Bob Dole, co-campaigner presidential candidate in her own right, and now a Senator from North Carolina, Elizabeth Dole has led a remarkably accomplished life in her climb to being one of the two most influential women in American politics. Her reputation as an effective and inspiring public speaker is not incidental to those accomplishments. In Hearts Touched By Fire, Dole recounts her inexperienced beginnings while running for student office at Duke University, and how understanding the importance of being able to communicate what she had to say ultimately helped to take her and others on her journey. In addition to her own development as a speaker, related with candor and insight, Dole presents 500 of the most time-honored, beloved, and, ultimately inspiring quotations—some of which were said to her personally—that she uses in her role as a leader, legislator and orator. Hearts Touched By Fire is a wonderful collection not only for those interested in public speaking, but for anyone who is simply in need of empowering and uplifting words of wisdom.

About the Author:

From 1969 to 1973, Dole served as Deputy to President Nixon's Special Assistant for Consumer Affairs. She became the first female Secretary of Transportation when sworn in by President Reagan in February of 1983, and was sworn in by President Bush as the nation's 20th Secretary of Labor in January 1989. In 1991 she became only the first woman since founder Clara Barton to serve as president of the American Red Cross. In 1999 Dole sought the Republican presidental nomination.
