A Quote by Thomas Woodrow Wilson on army, belief, exercise, and peace

A Quote by Thomas Woodrow Wilson on art, character, gifts, growth, guidance, judgment, life, men, motives, play, purpose, secrets, seriousness, spirit, and spirituality

A man is the part he plays among his fellows. He is not isolated; he cannot be. His life is made up of the relations he bears to others - is made or marred by those relations, guided by them, judged by them, expressed in them. There is nothing else upon which he can spend his spirit - nothing else that we can see. It is by these he gets his spiritual growth; it is by these we see his character revealed, his purpose, his gifts. A few (men) act as those who have mastered the secrets of a serious art, with deliberate subordination of themselves to the great end and motive of the play. These have "found themselves," and have all the ease of a perfect adjustment.

A Quote by Thomas Woodrow Wilson on history, liberty, limitations, and power

The history of liberty is a history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of the limitation of governmental power, not the increase of it.

A Quote by Thomas Woodrow Wilson on achievement, hope, life, order, spirit, vision, and world

You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.
