Anecdotes
In a story recounted by First Lady Grace Coolidge, a young woman once sat next to President Calvin Coolidge at a dinner party. She told him that she made a bet she could get him to have a conversation of three words or more. According to the First Lady, Coolidge, without even looking at the young woman, quietly responded, “You lose.”

He once explained to Bernard Baruch why he often sat silently through interviews: “Well, Baruch, many times I say only ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to people. Even that is too much. It winds them up for twenty minutes more.”

When Will Rogers was being taken to the White House to meet President Calvin Coolidge, he was cautioned not to try to be funny because the President had no sense of humor. The undaunted Rogers bet that he could have Coolidge laughing within 20 seconds. When the formal introduction was made, “Mr. President, may I introduce my friend, Mr. Will Rogers,” Rogers held out his hand with a questioning look and said, “Pardon me, I didn’t quite get the name.” Coolidge roared with laughter, and Rogers won the wager.

While on a private tour of the home of poet Emily Dickinson in Amherst, MA, President Coolidge made a keen observation. When shown a prized, handwritten collection of her most famous poems, he studied them and remarked, “Wrote with a pen, eh? I dictate.”
