Millard Fillmore Quotes
May God save the country, for it is evident that the people will not.
I have not the advantage of a classical education, and no man should, in my judgment, accept a degree he cannot read.
An honorable defeat is better than a dishonorable victory.
The man who can look upon a crisis without being willing to offer himself upon the altar of his country is not fit for public trust.
It is a national disgrace that our Presidents, after having occupied the highest position in the country, should be cast adrift, and perhaps, be compelled to keep a corner grocery for subsistence.
I can hardly believe that any man born an American can possess other than an American heart.
It is not strange...to mistake change for progress.
