Rutherford Hayes

19th US President
Evening attend two "fandangos." Girls not very pretty but exceedingly graceful. [You] pay a dime for a figure and refreshments foryour doxy, who instead of eating prudently stores her cakes, etc., in a basket to be taken home for the family.More Rutherford Hayes quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The man of large and conspicuous public service in civil life must be content without the Presidency. Still more, the availability of a popular man in a doubtful State will secure him the prize in a close contest against the first statesman of the country whose State is safe.More Rutherford Hayes quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My ambition for station was always easily controlled. If the place came to me it was welcome. But it never seemed to me worth seeking at the cost of self-respect, or independence. My family were not historic; they were well-to-do, did not hold or seek office. It was easy for me to be contented in private life. An honor was no honor to me, if obtained by my own seeking.More Rutherford Hayes quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
He serves his party best who serves the country best.More Rutherford Hayes quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Disunion and civil war are at hand; and yet I fear disunion and war less than compromise. We can recover from them. The free States alone, if we must go on alone, will make a glorious nation.More Rutherford Hayes quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
