Rutherford Hayes

Rutherford Hayes

19th US President
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]
The progress of society is mainly the improvement in the condition of the workingmen of the world.More Rutherford Hayes quotes [08/14/2011 01:08:07]
Partisanship should be kept out of the pulpit.... The blindest of partisans are preachers. All politicians expect and find more candor, fairness, and truth in politicians than in partisan preachers. They are not replied to--no chance to reply to them.... The balance wheel of free institutions is free discussion. The pulpit allows no free discussion.More Rutherford Hayes quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Do not let your bachelor ways crystallize so that you can't soften them when you come to have a wife and a family of your own.More Rutherford Hayes quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I hope you will be benefitted by your churchgoing. Where the habit does not Christianize, it generally civilizes. That is reason enough for supporting churches, if there were no higher.More Rutherford Hayes quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
