Warren G. Harding Quotes

Our most dangerous tendency is to expect too much of government, and at the same time do for it too little.
I am not fit for this office and should never have been here.
It is my conviction that the fundamental trouble with the people of the United States is that they have gotten too far away from Almighty God.
The success of our popular government rests wholly upon the correct interpretation of the deliberate, intelligent, dependable popular will of America.
America's present need is not heroics, but healing; not nostrums but normalcy; not revolution, but restoration.
I don't know what to do or where to turn in this taxation matter. Somewhere there must be a book that tells all about it, where I could go to straighten it out in my mind. But I don't know where the book is, and maybe I couldn't read it if I found it.
The black man should seek to be, and should be encouraged to be, the best possible black man and not the best possible imitation of a white man.
There is something inherently wrong, something out of accord with the ideals of representative democracy, when one portion of our citizenship turns its activities to private gain amid defensive war while another is fighting, sacrificing, or dying for national preservation.
