Ulysses S. Grant was the 18th President of the U.S. He studied at the Military Academy, where he was an average student and decided to leave the army after serving the mandatory term. He was appointed as a quartermaster during the ‘Mexican-American War’ and further commanded a company and was appreciated for his bravery. He was promoted to the post of a captain but ruined his reputation with his drinking habits and eventually had to resign. His civilian life witnessed a lot of failures and he ended up selling firewood for survival. During the Civil War, his patriotism compelled him to join the army and although he faced rejection but eventually went on to lead a battalion. He used this second term and led the battalion to victory in a couple of battles. Backed by his bravery and experience, he became the General of the U.S Army in the later part of the Civil War. This paved his path to the chair of the U.S President where he went on to successfully serve for two consecutive terms. Here is a compilation of thoughts and quotations by the great military general and political leader. Go through the motivational quotes and sayings by Ulysses S. Grant.
The friend in my adversity I shall always cherish most. I can better trust those who have helped to relieve the gloom of my dark hours than those who are so ready to enjoy with me the sunshine of my prosperity.
