Notable September 15 birthdays:
William Howard Taft ( 1857 - 1930 ), 27th president of the United States and the tenth chief justice of the United States, the only person to have held both offices: "Enthusiasm for a cause sometimes warps judgment...Substantial progress toward better things can rarely be taken without developing new evils requiring new remedies...The world is not going to be saved by legislation...We are all imperfect. We can not expect perfect government...Unless education promotes character making, unless it helps men to be more moral, more just to their fellows, more law abiding, more discriminatingly patriotic and public spirited, it is not worth the trouble taken to furnish it."
Agatha Christie ( 1890 - 1976 ), English detective novelist: "I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow; but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing...It is a curious thought, but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them...A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity. It dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path...Very few of us are what we seem."
