Джон Ка́лвин Ку́лидж-младший — 30-й президент США , от Республиканской партии США.


„Лозунг «не сдавайся» решал, решает и всегда будет решать любые человеческие проблемы.“

„Женщина: Господин Кулидж, я поспорила со своей знакомой, которая сказала, что я не смогу вытянуть из вас больше пары слов.
Кулидж: Вы проиграли.“


„Я никогда не имел неприятностей из-за того, чего я не сказал.“

„Никогда не выходи навстречу неприятностям. Сиди спокойно, и девять из десяти неприятностей просто не дойдут до тебя.“

„Ничто в мире не заменит упорства. Не заменит талант — ничего нет обыкновенней талантливого неудачника. Не заменит гений — непризнанная гениальность почти вошла в поговорку. Не заменит образование — мир полон образованных голодранцев. Всесильны лишь упорство и решимость. Девиз стоять на своем всегда разрешал и будет разрешать проблемы рода человеческого.“ Пробивайся вперёд: ничто на свете не заменит настойчивости. Её не заменит талант — нет ничего обычнее талантливых неудачников. Её не заменит гениальность — нереализованный гений уже стал притчей во языцех. Её не заменит хорошее образование — мир полон образованных изгоев. Всемогущи лишь настойчивость и упорство.

„Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.“

„It takes a great man to be a good listener.“

„Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.“


„There is no dignity
quite so impressive,
and no independence
quite so important,
as living within your means.“

„Don’t expect to build up the weak by pulling down the strong.“

„Our government rests upon religion. It is from that source that we derive our reverence for truth and justice, for equality and liberality, and for the rights of mankind. Unless the people believe in these principles they cannot believe in our government. There are only two main theories of government in our world. One rests on righteousness and the other on force. One appeals to reason, and the other appeals to the sword. One is exemplified in the republic, the other is represented by despotism.

The government of a country never gets ahead of the religion of a country. There is no way by which we can substitute the authority of law for the virtue of man. Of course we endeavor to restrain the vicious, and furnish a fair degree of security and protection by legislation and police control, but the real reform which society in these days is seeking will come as a result of our religious convictions, or they will not come at all. Peace, justice, humanity, charity—these cannot be legislated into being. They are the result of divine grace.“

„It is much more important to kill bad bills than to pass good ones.“


„If we judge ourselves only by our aspirations and everyone else only their conduct we shall soon reach a very false conclusion.“

„We cannot do everything at once, but we can do something at once.“

„I have noticed that nothing I have never said ever did me any harm.“

„To the American People: Christmas is not a time or a season but a state of mind. To cherish peace and good will, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. If we think on these things, there will be born in us a Savior and over us will shine a star sending its gleam of hope to the world.

Presidential message, December 25, 1927“
