The Quietest Little Fellow
President Lincoln telling one of his assistants about General Grant:
"Well, I hardly know what to think of him. He's the quietest little fellow you ever saw . . . He makes the least fuss of any man you ever saw. I believe two or three times he has been in this room a minute or so before I knew he was here. It's about so all around. The only evidence that you have that he's in any place is that he makes things git! Wherever he is, things move!"
- From The Man Who Saved the Union: Ulysses Grant in War and Peace by H. W. Brands
