In 1993, Clinton became the President of the United States, as a Democratic candidate, defeating George H. W. Bush. Clinton was re-elected for his second term, a feat that had not been achieved by any Democratic President since Franklin D. Roose-velt. Clinton is regarded as one of the most influential American Presidents of the mod-ern era and his eight year term is generally regarded as a success.

Needless to say, he is a great orator and has expressed his thoughts on various social, political, economic and diplomatic issues. His writings, talk and speeches give insight into his mind. Here is a collection of some popular quotes by Bill Clinton on politics, society, America, education, schools, independence and difference.
If you live long enough, you'll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you'll be a better person. It's how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit.
We know we have to face hard truths and take strong steps, but we have not done so; instead, we have drifted. And that drifting has eroded our resources, fractured our economy, and shaken our confidence.
