The father of a nation, as no other man has been; a man of warmth, who wanted the love and respect of his fellow men more, perhaps, than anything else; a man who loved children and beautiful women; a man who could dance a whole night through with four bottles of wine under his belt; a man whose indomitable will conquered illness, fear, defeat and failure: in other words, a man both human an weak--whom history was fortunate in finding to lead the young America.
