Dwight Eisenhower
Born 1890.  Died 1969.  Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force from 1943 to 1945.  34th President of the United States (1953-1961).

  • Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionists and rebels - men and women who dare to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, may we never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion.

  • There is nothing wrong with America that the faith, love of freedom, intelligence, and energy of her citizens can not cure.

  • I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.

  • Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.

  • The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office.

  • Whatever America hopes to bring to pass in the world must first come to pass in the heart of America.

  • We are going to have peace even if we have to fight for it.

  • A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both.

  • What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight - it's the size of the fight in the dog.

  • If all that Americans want is security they can go to prison. They'll have enough to eat, a bed and a roof over their heads. But if an American wants to preserve his dignity and his equality as a human being, he must not bow his neck to any dictatorial government.

  • The quest for peace is the statesman's most exacting duty... Practical progress to lasting peace is his fondest hope.
