Rutherford Birchard Hayes
Quotations



"Virtue is defined to be mediocrity, of which either extreme is vice."

"I am not liked as a President by the politicians in office, in the press, or in Congress. But I am content to abide the judgment - the sober second thought - of the people."
 
"My policy is trust—peace, and to put aside the bayonet."
 
"Nobody ever left the presidency with less regret, less disappointment, fewer heart burnings, or any general content with the result of his term (in his own heart, I mean) than I do."
 
"Coming in, I was denounced as a fraud by all the extreme men of the opposing party, and as an ingrate and a traitor by the same class of men in my own party. Going out, I have the good will, blessings, and approval of the best people of all parties."
 
"Virtue is defined to be mediocrity, of which either extreme is vice."
