O knihe

\"I know only two tunes,\" said Ulysses S. Grant. \"One of them is `Yankee Doodle` and the other isn`t.\" Jimmy Carter observed: \"Whatever starts in California unfortunately has an inclination to spread.\" And Warren Harding complained: \"The White House is a prison. I can`t get away from the men who dog my footsteps. I am in jail.\"
This entertaining, handy little book includes over 400 other memorable quotes, expressed by America`s chief executives over the past two centuries, among them Chester Arthur`s blunt \"I may be President of the United States, but my private life is nobody`s damn business,\" Calvin Coolidge`s terse \"The chief business of America is business,\" Dwight Elsenhower`s \"Farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil, and you`re a thousand miles from a cornfield,\" and George Bush`s \"Read my lips, no new taxes.\"
From George Washington to Bill Clinton, these presidential declarations will not only provide public speakers and students of American history with a wealth of useful material, they`ll also delight general readers.
