    A President Roosevelt comes only once in a century. I believe God knew and does know of the need of the world at this moment. I don’t believe President Roosevelt is an accident in time, or that it is an accident that he is President for a third time. I believe that Franklin D. Roosevelt truly is the voice of liberty in the world.

Truth, sir, is a cow which will yield such people no more milk, and so they are gone to milk the bull.
    —Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)
