President Johnson Inaugural Address - Allowed by God to Seek Greatness

Our 36th President was Lyndon B. Johnson. In his 1965 Inaugural address, he said:

"My fellow countrymen, on this occasion, the oath I have taken before you and before God is not mine alone, but ours together.
"But we have no promise from God that our greatness will endure. We have been allowed by Him to seek greatness with the sweat of our hands and the strength of our spirit.
"...the judgment of God is harshest on those who are most favored."
