Benjamin Harrison

23rd U.S. President
I shall have a great advantage over you, Mr. Gerry. When we are all hung for what we are now doing. From the size and weight of my body I shall die in a few minutes, but from the lightness of your body you will dance in the air an hour or two before you are dead.More Benjamin Harrison quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When and under what conditions is the black man to have a free ballot? When is he in fact to have those full civil rights which have so long been his in law?More Benjamin Harrison quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I have never been able to think of the day as one of mourning; I have never quite been able to feel that half-masted flags were appropriate on Decoration Day. I have rather felt that the flag should be at the peak, because those whose dying we commemorate rejoiced in seeing it where their valor placed it. We honor them in a joyous, thankful, triumphant commemoration of what they did.More Benjamin Harrison quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

I knew that my staying up would not change the election result if I were defeated, while if elected I had a hard day ahead of me. So I thought a night's rest was best in any event.More Benjamin Harrison quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
