10.23.2020 – always remember

always remember
that the future comes one day
at a time always

From the quote from Dean Acheson when he said:

The future comes one day at a time.”

Or …

Always remember that the future comes one day at a time.

Or …

The best thing about the future is that it comes only one day at a time.

I really do not like to quote quotes without attribution.

Without proper context or attribution I might as well go to work for Hallmark.

My bench mark is usually my hardcover copy of Bartlett’s familiar quotations (16th Edition) and somehow Mr. Acheson is not even included though Spiro Agnew is.

According to Wikipedia Mr. Acheson served as the 51st United States Secretary of State under President Harry S. Truman. He served as Secretary of State from January 1949 to January 1953. He helped defend America’s foreign policy during the break of the Cold War.

Acheson’s most famous decision was convincing President Truman to intervene in the Korean War in June 1950. He also persuaded Truman to dispatch aid and advisors to French forces in Indochina, though in 1968 he finally counseled President Lyndon B. Johnson to negotiate for peace with North Vietnam.

He may be more famous for being, along with President Truman, members of the Cowardly College of Communist Containment that Richard Nixon loved to hate.

Nevertheless, how, when or why Mr. Acheson said it will not change the fact that the future comes one day at time.
