“When I was a small boy in Kansas, a friend of mine and I went fishing, and as we sat there in the warmth of a summer afternoon on a riverbank, we talked about what we wanted to do when we grew up. I told him that I wanted to be a real major league ballplayer, a real professional like Honus Wagner. My friend said he’d like to be the president of the United States. Neither of us got our wish.”
       —Dwight D. Eisenhower
