Men make history, and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.

Harry S Truman, in Law and Politics

This is an aphorism from Aphorisms Galore!'s official collection. It was the Aphorism of the Day for 2016-04-23.

Does anyone have any idea where to find this quotation? Even the Truman library couldn't find it.

Thanks for your help.
