5. President Grover Cleveland
President Grover Cleveland and the Senate were constantly bickering with one another. However, the House of Representatives and Cleveland got along great.

In the middle of the night, the butler heard some noises and rushed to Cleveland´s bedroom, shook him and whispered: "Mister President, I think there are burglars in the house!"

Today, complete each one of your tasks, however big or small, with diligence." -- Dr. David Jeremiah
