QUOTATION:You know, the greatest epitaph in the country is here in Arizona. It’s in Tombstone, Ariz., and this epitaph says, “Here lies Jack Williams. He done his damndest.” I think that is the greatest epitaph a man could have. Whenever a man does the best he can, then that is all he can do; and that is what your President has been trying to do for the last 3 years for this country.
ATTRIBUTION:President HARRY S. TRUMAN, remarks in Winslow, Arizona, June 15, 1948.—Public Papers of the Presidents of the United States: Harry S. Truman, 1948, p. 356.
SUBJECTS:Presidency
