Dwight Morrow, the father of Anne Morrow Lindbergh, once held a dinner party to which
Calvin Coolidge had been invited. After Coolidge left, Morrow told the remaining guests
that Coolidge would make a good president. The others disagreed. They felt Coolidge was
too quiet, that he lacked color and personality. No one would like him, they said. Anne,
then age six, spoke up: "I like him," she said. Then she displayed a finger with
a small bandage around it. "He was the only one at the party who asked about my sore
finger." "And that's why he would make a good president," added Morrow.

Mamie Adams always went to a branch post office in her town because the postal
employees there were friendly. She went there to buy stamps just before Christmas one year
and the lines were particularly long. Someone pointed out that there was no need to wait
in line because there was a stamp machine in the lobby. "I know," said
'but the machine won't ask me about my arthritis."
