Rutherford Hayes

19th US President
In the great and deep qualities of mind, heart, and soul, there is no change. Homer and Solomon speak to the same nature in man that is reached by Shakespeare and Lincoln. but in the accidents, the surroundings, the change is vast. All things now are mobile--movable.More Rutherford Hayes quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My only objection to the arrangements there is the two-in-a-bed system. It is bad.... But let your words and conduct be perfectlypure--such as your mother might know without bringing a blush to your cheek.... If not already mentioned, do not tell your mother of the doubling in bed.More Rutherford Hayes quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Last evening attended Croghan Lodge International Order of Odd Fellows. Election of officers. Chosen Noble Grand. These social organizations have a number of good results. All who attend are educated in self-government. This in a marked way. They bind society together. The well-to-do and the poor should be brought together as much as possible. The separation into classes--castes--is our danger. It is the danger of all civilizations.More Rutherford Hayes quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The ex-Presidential situation has its advantages, but with them are certain drawbacks. The correspondence is large. The meritorious demands on one are large. More independent out than in place, but still something of the bondage of the place that was willingly left. On the whole, however, I find many reasons to be content.More Rutherford Hayes quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One point in my public life: I did all I could for the reform of the civil service, for the building up of the South, for a soundcurrency, etc., etc., but I never forgot my party.... I knew that all good measures would suffer if my Administration was followed by the defeat of my party. Result, a great victory in 1880. Executive and legislature both completely Republican.More Rutherford Hayes quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
