Two quotes from two WWII figures

“Dear Bessie:
… I certainly enjoyed myself the evening I was there and you may be assured I shall repeat the offense as often as I can or you will allow me. That cake and coffee couldn’t be beat. I am like a girl that once boarded where I did. She said there was nothing better than cake but more cake. I heartily agree with her. It makes no difference about the variety just so it’s cake.”
– Harry S. Truman


“Meeting Roosevelt was like uncorking your first bottle of champagne.”
– Winston Churchill
