"I know chicken shit from chicken salad.”

“I may not know much, but I know
chicken shit from chicken salad.”
Here are some "thought stimulating" quotes from Lyndon Baines Johnson, 36th President of the United States:

"You aren't learning anything when you're talking."

"What convinces is conviction. Believe in the argument you're advancing. If you don't you're as good as dead. The other person will sense that something isn't there, and no chain of reasoning, no matter how logical or elegant or brilliant, will win your case for you."

"Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose."

"There are plenty of recommendations on how to get out of trouble cheaply and fast. Most of them come down to this: Deny your responsibility."

“Books and ideas are the most effective weapons against intolerance and ignorance.”

"There are no problems we cannot solve together, and very few that we can solve by ourselves."

"If one morning I walked on top of the water across the Potomac River, the headline that afternoon would read: 'President Can't Swim.'"

“We can draw lessons from the past, but we cannot live in it.”

"While you're saving your face, you're losing your ass."


"A President's hardest task is not to do what is right, but to know what is right."


"If two men agree on everything, you may be sure that one of them is doing the thinking.


"The noblest search is the search for excellence."       


Lyndon Baines Johnson (August 27, 1908 – January 22, 1973), succeeded to the presidency following the assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, completed Kennedy's term and was elected President in 1964. As President, he was responsible for designing the "Great Society" legislation that included laws that upheld civil rights, public broadcasting, Medicare, Medicaid, environmental protection, aid to education, and his "War on Poverty." Johnson escalated American involvement in the Vietnam War, from 16,000 American advisors/soldiers in 1963 to 550,000 combat troops in early 1968, stimulating a large antiwar movement.
