Rutherford Hayes

19th US President
We can travel longer, night and day, without losing our spirits than almost any persons we ever met.More Rutherford Hayes quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The truth is, this being errand boy to one hundred and fifty thousand people tires me so by night I am ready for bed instead of soirees.More Rutherford Hayes quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
[T]his free and easy old-bachelor sort of life is quite full of fun and jollity. Pease and myself room together; and everything like order and neatness is banished from our presence as a nuisance--old letters and old boots and shoes, duds clean and duds dirty, books and newspapers, tooth-brushes, shoe-brushes, and clothes-brushes, all heaped together on chairs, settees, etc., in dusty and "most admired confusion." Now, what is there imaginable in clean, tidy private life equal to this?More Rutherford Hayes quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I have a talent for silence and brevity. I can keep silent when it seems best to do so, and when I speak I can, and do usually, quit when I am done. This talent, or these two talents, I have cultivated. Silence and concise, brief speaking have got me some laurels, and, I suspect, lost me some. No odds. Do what is natural to you, and you are sure to get all the recognition you are entitled to.More Rutherford Hayes quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Universal suffrage should rest upon universal education. To this end, liberal and permanent provision should be made for the support of free schools by the State governments, and, if need be, supplemented by legitimate aid from national authority.More Rutherford Hayes quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
