Quotation by Lyndon Baines Johnson
Public Papers of the Presidents of the United States, Lyndon B. Johnson: 1963-64 "Address, Armistice Day, Brenham, Texas" (November 11, 1939) Address, Mitchell Field, New York" (May 9, 1964) "Address, World Education Conference" (Oct. 8, 1967) "Commencement Address for National Cathedral School" (June 5, 1962)
