NUMBER:7474
AUTHOR:Ulysses Simpson Grant (1822–1885)
QUOTATION:  They [the Pilgrim Fathers] fell upon an ungenial climate, where there were nine months of winter and three months of cold weather and that called out the best energies of the men, and of the women too, to get a mere subsistence out of the soil, with such a climate. In their efforts to do that they cultivated industry and frugality at the same time—which is the real foundation of the greatness of the Pilgrims.
ATTRIBUTION:Speech at New England Society Dinner, Dec. 22, 1880.
