Always take all the time to reflect that circumstances permit, but when the time for action has come, stop thinking. (Andrew Jackson)
Jackson lead as he lived, sometimes with his heart, sometimes with his mind, sometimes with both.
Politics was at once clinical and human, driven by principles and passions that he (the leader) had to master and harness for the good of the whole.
Steadiness of faith, was, in the long run, as illuminating and essential as sophistication of thought.
