Cleveland on Where Honor Lies

Today is the birthday of Grover Cleveland, the only President (1837-1908) to serve two non-consecutive terms.

Officeholders are the agents of the people, not their masters.

The ship of Democracy, which has weathered all storms, may sink through the mutiny of those aboard.
