  • Bill Clinton

    ˜If you live long enough, you'll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you'll be a better person. It's how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit.' This quote by Bill Clinton aptly describes his life and his motive for living. The 42nd President of the United States of America, Clinton is one of the most remarkable politicians who ventured to take the country through the depressive economic condition towards a progressive and prosperous future. A strong supporter of futuristic vision, he brought about progressive policies in the educational and health care sectors and aimed at providing the citizens with better living conditions. Before taking up the office of the President, Clinton served as the Governor of Arkansas for two terms and the Attorney General of Arkansas from 1977 to 1979. From a tender age, Clinton was blessed with leadership qualities and served as the student union leader in his school and college days. However, very few know that he was blessed with music abilities as well. In fact, Clinton during his high school days was the best saxophonist in the city and even considered taking up music as a career. However, his profound interest in public service had a somewhat overpowering effect as he made his way to the most important office of the country.
