Quote: Calvin Coolidge

US President Calvin Coolidge (1872 - 1933) was known for his terse speech and reticence.

A woman bet her friend that she could get Coolidge to speak to her, which was something he was reluctant to do. She went up to him and said: "Hello, Mr. President, I bet my friend that I could get you to say three words to me."

"You lose," Coolidge replied dryly, and walked away.
