Quotations

  • ''The welfare, the happiness, the energy and spirit of the men and women who do the daily work ... is the underlying necessity of all prosperity.... There can be nothing wholesome unless their life is wholesome; there can be no contentment unless they are contented.''

  • ''The government of the United States at present is a foster-child of the special interests. It is not allowed to have a voice of its own. It is told at every move, "Don't do that, You will interfere with our prosperity." And when we ask: "where is our prosperity lodged?" a certain group of gentlemen say, "With us."''
    Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924), U.S. president. The New Freedom, pp. 58-59 (1913).
  • ''I believe in human liberty as I believe in the wine of life. There is no salvation for men in the pitiful condescension of industrial masters. Guardians have no place in a land of freemen.''
    Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924), U.S. president. The New Freedom, p. 285 (1913).
  • ''The treasury of America lies in those ambitions and those energies that cannot be restricted to a special, favored class. It depends upon the inventions of unknown men; upon the originations of unknown men, upon the ambitions of unknown men. Every country is renewed out of the ranks of the unknown, not out of the ranks of those already famous and powerful and in control.''
    Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924), U.S. president. The New Freedom, p. 18 (1913).
  • ''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), U.S. president. The New Freedom, p. 88 (1913).
  • ''Democracy is not so much a form of government as a set of principles.''
    Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924), U.S. president. Atlantic Monthly (Boston, March 1901).
  • ''I confess my belief in the common man.... The man who is swimming against the stream knows the strength of it.... The man who is in the melee knows what blows are being struck and what blood is being drawn.''
    Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924), U.S. president. The New Freedom, p. 80 (1913).
  • ''There is no question what the roll of honor in America is. The roll of honor consists of the names of men who have squared their conduct by ideals of duty.''
    Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924), U.S. Democratic politician, president. Speech, February 27, 1916, Washington, DC.
  • ''Generally young men are regarded as radicals. This is a popular misconception. The most conservative persons I ever met are college undergraduates. The radicals are the men past middle life.''
    Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924), U.S. Democratic politician, president. speech, Nov. 19, 1905, New York City. The Papers of Woodrow Wilson, vol. 16, ed. Arthur S. Link (1974).
  • ''There has been something crude and heartless and unfeeling in our haste to succeed and be great. Our thought has been "Let every man look out for himself, let every generation look out for itself," while we reared giant machinery which made it impossible that any but those who stood at the levers of control should have any chance to look out for themselves.''
    Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924), U.S. Democratic politician, president. First inaugural address, March 4, 1913.
