An entry in Dwight D. Eisenhower's diary from Wednesday, January 21, 1953.
"My first day at the President's Desk. Plenty of worries and difficult problems.
But such has been my portion for a long time - the result is that this just seems
(today) like a continuation of all I've been doing since July '41 - even before that!"

Dwight D. Eisenhower, January 21, 1953
