Quotable Quotes of Harry S. Truman

By Heather Mitchell-Hamm


Because Mr. Truman is one of the more frequently quoted Presidents, I wanted to create a project that would help clear up some misquoted quotations, test your knowledge, and be fun. Many of the quotations came from Niel Johnson who has an unpublished manuscript titled Values and Issues: Words to the Wise from Harry S. Truman. His help was invaluable. Thank you Niel for reading over my quotes and making corrections where necessary.

I hope you enjoy the "tests" and learn a few things along the way. I would love to hear from other teachers and students as to how they used this project.
