Longhand Note of President Harry S. Truman, Not dated. President's Secretary's Files - Longhand Notes.

"A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. Speak what you think now in hard words, and tomorrow speak what tomorrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradicts everything you said today."

Mr. Emerson
