Famous quotes containing the words woodrow wilson, home, boyhood and/or wilson:

    Today, supremely, it behooves us to remember that a nation shall be saved by the power that sleeps in its own bosom; or by none; shall be renewed in hope, in confidence, in strength by waters welling up from its own sweet, perennial springs. Not from above; not by patronage of its aristocrats. The flower does not bear the root, but the root the flower.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)

    Results are what you expect, and consequences are what you get.
    schoolgirl’s definition, quoted in Ladies’ Home Journal (New York, Jan. 1942)

    If ... boyhood and youth are but vanity, must it not be our ambition to become men?
    Vincent Van Gogh (1853–1890)

    The only use of an obstacle is to be overcome. All that an obstacle does with brave men is, not to frighten them, but to challenge them.
    —Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)
