Political partyRepublican

George Louis Wellington (January 28, 1852 – March 20, 1927) was a Republican member of the United States Senate, representing the State of Maryland from 1897 to 1903. He also represented the sixth district of Maryland in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Born in Cumberland, Maryland to a father and mother each from Hesse and Bavaria,[1] respectively, Wellington attended a German school with some private instruction. He went on to be a clerk in the Second National Bank of Cumberland in 1870 and later was a teller.

From 1882 to 1888 and 1890, Wellington was treasurer of Allegany County, Maryland. He unsuccessfully ran for Comptroller of Maryland in 1889, but was chosen as the assistant treasurer of the United States at Baltimore, Maryland from 1890 to 1893.

Wellington was unsuccessful in his campaign to be elected to the 53rd Congress in 1892, but two years later, in 1894, was elected as a Republican to the 54th Congress. After serving one term, he was elected to the United States Senate in 1896, serving one term from 1897 to 1903, choosing not to run for re-election in 1902. As senator, he was chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee to Establish a University of the United States (55th and 56th Congresses).

On September 4, 1900, Wellington formally withdrew from the Republican Party and supported Democratic presidential candidate William Jennings Bryan (who was running against Pres. William McKinley for the second consecutive time). The September 5, 1900 edition of The New York Times described it thus:

"CUMBERLAND, Maryland, Sept 4.—In a Speech delivered here to-night, in the presence of William J. Bryan, who afterward spoke from the same platform. United States Senator George L. Wellington of this State announced his opposition to the present Republican Administration, and his determination to support Mr. Bryan. He said he had taken this position against the party which had elected him Senator because of his views upon the Spanish war and its consequences, and because of his opposition to imperialism. Senator "Wellington was listened to with interest, and was frequently applauded, although at times there were very pronounced hisses. In the course of his speech he said: 'As the Governmental policy of President McKinley was developed I was compelled to differ from it at several points and gave evidence of my disagreement in the speeches delivered by me during the last three years vpon the floor of the Senate, touching the Spanish–American war, the Philippine Islands, Porto Rico, and the South African affairs. I am here to-night to reiterate the convictions I voiced in the Senate and record my opposition to the principles of President McKinley as evidenced in his foreign policy and protest against the violation of the principles upon which our Government is founded, against the desecration of the Constitution, and the reversal of the policy which has given us a century and a quarter of National life.'"

In 1913, Wellington again sought election as senator, but as a member of the Progressive Party. He was not elected and, following the election, he engaged in civic activities. He became president of two banks and held an interest in the electric railways and electric companies in his hometown of Cumberland.

Wellington died in Cumberland, and is buried at Rose Hill Cemetery.

I was flunking out of college I had a 1.7 grade point average. I hope none of you can relate I had 1.7. Grade point average. I was sitting in my mother's beauty shop They still call it beauty shops now what they call it. Yeah, I'll sit in the beauty parlor I was sitting in my mother's beauty parlor and I'm looking in the mirror, and I see behind me this woman under the dryer And every time she looked up. Every time I looked up. She was looking at me Just looking at me in the eye I don't know who she was and I said You know she said somebody give me a pen give me a pencil I have a prophecy March 27 1975 she said boy you are gonna travel the world And speak to millions of people Now mind you I flunked out of college I'm thinking about joining the army I didn't know what I was gonna do. She's telling me I'm gonna travel the world and Speak to millions of people Well, I have traveled the world And I have spoke to millions of people But that's not the most important thing the success that I had the most important thing is that what she taught me And what she told me that day has stayed with me since I've been protected. I've been directed. I've been corrected I kept God in my life and has kept me humble I didn't always stick with him, but he always stuck with me So stick with him in everything you do if you think you want to do what you think I've done, then do what I've done and stick with God number two fail big That's right fail big Today is the beginning of the rest of your life, and it can be be very frightening It's a new world out there. It's a mean world out there and You only live once So do what you feel passionate about take chances professionally Don't be afraid to fail there's an old IQ test was nine dots And you had to draw five lines with a pencil within these nine dots Without lifting the pencil the only way to do it was to go outside the box So don't be afraid to go outside the box don't be afraid to Think outside the box don't be afraid to fail big to dream big but remember dreams without goals Are just dreams, and they ultimately fuel disappointment So have dreams But have goals life goals yearly goals Monthly goals daily goals. I try to give myself a goal every day Sometimes Just did not curse somebody out simple goals, but have goals and understand That to achieve these goals You must apply discipline and consistency In order to achieve your goals you must apply discipline, which you've already done and Consistency every day not just on Tuesday and miss a few days you have to work at it Every day you have to plan Every day you've heard the saying we don't plan to fail we fail to plan hard work works Working really hard is what successful people do and in this Text tweet twerk world that you've grown up in Remember just because you're doing a lot more Doesn't mean you're getting a lot more done Remember that just because you're doing a lot more Doesn't mean you're getting a lot more Done don't confuse Movement with progress My mother told me you can run in place all the time and never get anywhere So continue to strive, continue to have goals, continue to progress Number three you'll never see a u-haul behind a hearse I'll say it again You'll never see a u-haul Behind a hearse. I don't care how much money you make you can't take it with you And it's not how much you have It's what you do With what you have we all have different talents some of you will be doctors some lawyers some Scientists some educators some nurses some teachers. Yeah, okay Some preachers The most selfish thing you can do in this world Is help someone else Why is it selfish because the gratification the goodness that comes to you the good feeling the good feeling that I get From helping others nothing's better than that not jewelry not big house I have not the cars, but it's the joy. That's where the joy is in helping others. That's where the success is Finally I pray that You put your slippers, way under the bed tonight So that when you wake up in the morning You have to get on your knees To reach them And While you're down there Say, thank you for grace Thank you for mercy.
