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.

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

The history of liberty is the history of the limitation of governmental power, not the increase of it. When we resist . . . concentration of power we are resisting the powers of death, because concentration of power is what always precedes the destruction of human liberties.
