"We cannot do everything at once but we can do something at once." -- Calvin Coolidge
About Calvin Coolidge
John Calvin "Silent Cal" Coolidge was the thirtieth US president, ascending to the duty after the death of Warren Harding.
He was born in Vermont on July 4, 1872.
A woman once bet that she could get the tight-lipped Coolidge to say three words during dinner.
His response: "You lose." As president, he was a Federalist, believing in local self-rule, though he lowered taxes and reduced the national debt, inciting the growth of the Roaring Twenties.
He died in 1933.
