Woodrow Wilson Quotations

-We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter’s evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.

-A conservative is a man who sits and thinks, mostly sits.

-Power consists in one’s capacity to link his will with the purpose of others, to lead by reason and a gift of cooperation.

-…it is as hard to do your duty when men are sneering at you as when they are shooting at you.

-You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.
