A Quote by Herbert Clark Hoover on america, dedication, dignity, government, history, men, nations, needs, people, principles, thinking, and work

If America is to be run by the people, it is the people who must think. And we do not need to put on sackcloth and ashes to think. Nor should our minds work like a sundial which records only sunshine. Our thinking must square against some lessons of history, some principles of government and morals, if we would preserve the rights and dignity of men to which this nation is dedicated.

A Quote by Herbert Clark Hoover on character, god, honesty, inventions, life, men, men and women, and women

While I can make no claim for having introduced the term "rugged individualism," I should be proud to have invented it. It has been used by American leaders for over a half-century in eulogy of those God-fearing men and women of honesty whose stamina and character and fearless assertion of rights led them to make their own way in life.
