Definitely an Interesting quote indeed.

Even more so because it led me to look further into James A. Garfield, known as the assassinated president 200 days into office.

Quite an interesting character even if the wikipedia article is one of the most biased* I've seen there.

*not a slam on Garfield but the wiki's writer trying influence your opinion.

Character is the foundation stone upon which one must build to win respect. just as no worthy building can be erected on a weak foundation, so no lasting reputation worthy of respect can be built on a weak character. Without character, all effort to attain dignity is superficial, and results are sure to be disappointing. ~ R. C. Samsel

The happiness which brings enduring worth to life is not the superficial happiness that is dependent on circumstances. It is the happiness and contentment that fills the soul even in the midst of the most distressing of circumstances and most bitter environment. It is the kind of happiness that grins when things go wrong and smiles through the tears. The happiness for which our souls ache is one undisturbed by success or failure, one which will root deeply inside us and give inward relaxation, peace, and contentment, no matter what the surface problems may be. That kind of happiness stands in need on no outward stimulus. ~ Billy Graham

"The House of Representatives voted Thursday to open an impeachment inquiry against President Bill Clinton, which makes him only the third president in American history to face such an investigation.

The vote was 258 to 176. All but one of the 228 Republicans voted to authorize the House Judiciary Committee to open an investigation that will be unrestricted in time and scope."

New York Times

In hindsight, this was a bellwether of things to come...
