President David

Famous quotes containing the words president and/or david:

    The President has paid dear for his White House. It has commonly cost him all his peace, and the best of his manly attributes. To preserve for a short time so conspicuous an appearance before the world, he is content to eat dust before the real masters who stand erect behind the throne.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    When a shadow flits across the landscape of the soul where is the substance?
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
