Allan Nevins on Grover Cleveland

I am collecting pithy quotes on the legacies of various presidents for an informal project I’m doing. You can see the project here to get an idea of the sorts of quotes I’m looking for.

I unfortunately do not at this time have access to Allan Nevins’ biography of Grover Cleveland. Does anybody have access, and if so, could you give me a pithy quote? I know the famous one: “…the greatness lies in typical rather than unusual qualities. He had no endowments that thousands of men do not have. He possessed honesty, courage, firmness, independence, and common sense. But he possessed them to a degree other men do not.” But that’s more about him as a person than as a president. I’m looking for a quote which talks about his legacy qua president.

I will of course happily give attribution for finding the quote to any Doper who so provides.
