Samuel J. Tilden quotes

  • It is said that it is far more difficult to hold and maintain leadership (liberty) than it is to attain it.

We are apt to forget that we are only one of a team, that in unity there is strength and that we are strong only as long as each unit in our organization functions with precision.
