From Before They Were Elected: Presidential Quotes:
When the United States were founded, the Presidency was a unique public office amongst a world of autocratic governments. It was designed by the framers of the Constitution to act as a populist check against the potential excesses of the legislative and judicial branches, a post that even a common man could hold.
The philosophical ruminations of America’s first presidents clearly reflect their aristocratic backgrounds and a sense of self-awareness in the annals of history. With Andrew Jackson, we see the caricature emerge of the fighting president, a man who will vigorously defend the people from entrenched elites. Moving into the twentieth century, we can observe the commercialization of our soon-to-be Commanders in Chief, and how their rhetoric shifted to meet the demands of running what had become a world superpower.

From Quotes from the 1960's: Sex, Love and Rock & Roll:
The 1960s represent the 7th decade of the 20th century, and are remembered as a time of change; youth influence; radicalism; and the sexual revolution.
The baby-boomers of the 1940's were coming of age, and the largest population of college-age men and women banded together to mark a major turning point in the culture of nations worldwide.
From the swinging sixties in London and the hip fashions on Carnaby Road; to the political activism and demonstrations in the United States and the standoffs on college campuses; to Woodstock, the music festival to end all music festivals in upstate New York; the 1960s were influenced by youth, no longer content to be representations of the generation preceding them, and of course, a time of sex, love and rock & roll.

From Einstein in His Own Words: 100+ Quotes:
Albert Einstein was born in 1879. By the time of his death in 1955, the world Einstein was born into would be completely foreign to him. Scientific breakthroughs and advancement over the 76 years of his life permanently changed the world.
While Einstein was regarded as brilliant by both his contemporaries and predecessors, Einstein had a humble assessment of his mental faculties.
Einstein published his theory of relativity in 1905, at the tender age of 26, and years later it was all but validated by the scientific community at large. Yet, the source of his greatest triumph also lead to his greatest sources of consternation.
