This Was What There Was | Woodrow Wilson Quote
"We have squandered a great part of what we might have used, and have not stopped to conserve the exceeding bounty of nature... Our duty is to cleanse, to reconsider, to restore, to correct the evil without impairing the good, to purify and humanize every process of our common life without weakening or sentimentalizing it. There has been something crude and heartless and unfeeling in our haste to succeed and be great."
Woodrow Wilson, Inaugural Speech, March 4, 1913
