In today's excerpt - Woodrow Wilson. President of the United States during World War I, the Paris Peace Treaty, the controversial League of Nations debate, and President of Princeton.  An individual who spent much time face-to-face with such renowned leaders as Roosevelt, Llloyd, George, Clemenceau and countless others.  Here he comments on leaders:

"When you come into the presence of a leader of men, you know you have come into the presence of fire; that it is best not incautiously to touch that man; that there is something that makes it dangerous to cross him."

As quoted by Robert A. Caro in his introduction to Master of the Senate, Knopf 2002
