Woodrow Wilsons Eloquence (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Woodrow Wilsons Eloquence Not without some hesitation, I have appended to the discussion my two speeches nominating Woodrow Wilson for the presidency in 1912 and 1916. They were composed under stress, while events were transpiring in the midst of which I took such part as one does who finds himself unexpectedly involved in some glorious and scarce believable emergency.
Time and succeeding occurrences have verified the accuracy of their analysis of Woodrow Wilsons character to such a degree, and the prophecy of the second speech, thought by some, at the time of its delivery, to be mere hyperbole, has been (and I believe is further to be) so remarkably fulfilled, thatthe repetition of them now may not prove uninter esting to any one who may find merit in the ensuing re ections.
Then, too, they are examples, or intended to be, of application of the principles herein discussed. They are genuine expressions, at any rate, of the in uence of the man whose eloquence of character, as well as of speech, I have undertaken to explain.
The imperfections of the arrangement and phrase ology of the exposition, must be charged to the conditions under which it was prepared.
Seeking rest, with a mind weary of human struggle, yet buoyed with the assurance that good will be the final goal of ill, my promise is kept in admiration and love of President Wilson, and in the wish that the young men of America, whom I yearned to join in arms quite as fully as I did in spirit, on their sublime crusade under his remarkable leadership, may appropriate his philosophy of life by conforming their efforts to a determination to solve their every problem correctly and to make that the secret of their eloquence.
