Life of Hon. Grover Cleveland, Ex-President, U. S. a : A Full Account of His Ancestry, Boyhood, Early Struggles, Recent Political Triumphs, Marriage, and Home Life (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Life of Hon. Grover Cleveland, Ex-President, U. S. A: A Full Account of His Ancestry, Boyhood, Early Struggles, Recent Political Triumphs, Marriage, and Home Life As it fell to the ground it has produced giants. Men. Keen, brainy, potent, all compact of fire and rock, not always easily understood, but working their way onward by great leaps and bounds. Scorning common things, clutching at stars and stamping upon nations ruling everywhere, except in their own country. The Irish blood has been to the human race what that of the Arab horse has been to the equine species. It has high mettle, giving it vigor of thought, quickness of apprehension. Readiness of resource. And cheerfulness under difficulties. An English family, with a little Irish blood in it. Is always improved by the mixture. To a Scotchman it is like putting fire to coal, it brightens his 1113a and warms the coldness of his nature. But of all races, it is most beneficial to the German; other wise somewhat heavy and slow, though true and solid, a mixture of Irish blood spurs them into exertion, stimulates their somewhat sluggish temperament, makes them buoyant and gracious. Softens the asperities of their disposition, and in fact, this mixture of blood produces royal men and regally beautiful women.
