Quote of the Day (Maxwell Anderson, on George Washington)

“There are some men who lift the age they inhabit, till all men walk on higher ground in that lifetime.” —American playwright Maxwell Anderson (1888-1959) on George Washington, in Valley Forge (1937)

Happy birthday to George Washington, born on this day in 1732. He was indisputably, as biographer James Thomas Flexner called him, the “indispensable man” in creating the United States.
