Excerpts: GEORGE WASHINGTON, APRIL 30, 1789, INAUGURAL ADDRESS: "It would be peculiarly improper to omit, in this first official act, my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the universe....We ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained." ABRAHAM LINCOLN, MARCH 4, 1865, INAUGURAL ADDRESS: "If God will that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsmen's two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said 'the judgements of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.'" FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT, JANUARY 20, 1945, INAUGURAL ADDRESS: "So we pray to Him now for the vision to see our way clearly - to see the way that leads to a better life for ourselves and for all our fellow men - to the achievement of His will, to peace on earth. In the presence of God - I know that it is America's purpose that we shall not fail." RONALDREAGAN, JANUARY 20, 1981, INAUGURAL ADDRESS: "With God's help, we can and will resolve the problems which now confront us. And after all, why shouldn't we believe that? We are Americans."

A Slanted Collection of Quotes Mar 22, 2006
Federer has done a lot of research, and he provides a large number of generally interesting quotations from every President, even those who lacked eloquence or longevity. A number of the excerpts precede or follow the term of office, but they do represent the men who held office--up to a point. Most regretably, however, about 99% of the quotations involve references to the Bible, Christianity, Christ, and God. Those who are ardent about their Christian religion will love this book. Those who would prefer a more balanced presentation of the Presidents' words will not like it at all. And Federer is so intent on Christianizing the Presidents that their humor is all but non-existant, and none seem like real humans--more like evangelists. There are full page pictures of each President, but, in my copy, they are almost all of poor quality.
